The hamlet of Roydhouse is in the Kirklees district, West Yorkshire. Nearby are Shelley, Huddersfield and Skelmanthorpe.
The 4 accessways in the hamlet are Drinker Lane, Titus Lane, Jagger Lane and Wool Row Lane.
The Three Acres is the public house on Drinker Lane.
I have not found any Roydhouse family who lived in the hamlet yet but would be very excited to find traces one day. The Roydhouse families in Hemsworth, 25 kms away possibly could have a connection however the limited records available and lack of proofs would make this theory difficult to document.
A family I did find mention of was the Robuck family.
We know the Robucke’s of Roydhouse were there from 1580 onwards through the wills they left.
John Robuck was born c 1580, and married Agnes Soyner about 1600.
Their children included:
Agnes, Margaret, Elizabeth, Thomas and John.
John died in October 1635, and Agnes before 1637.
