Today's generation of the Roylane family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Roylane family lived in Lincolnshire. This name is a topographical reference to land owned by the Rye family in this county. Rye is also topographical and indicates that the original bearer of the name lived near to a field of rye, and was distinguished by this proximity.
