The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Royalty family name to the British Isles. They lived in Kent. Their name, however, is a reference to Roisel, France, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

The surname Royalty was first found in Kent, where they held a family seat from very early times, and where they were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Royle, Royal, Royell, Royl, Roille, Riall, Ryle, Ryall, O'Riall and many more.

Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Royalty or a variant listed above:
