Timothy ROY was born in Dennistoun near Bothwell.  His mother arrived out from Scotland in 1822 as a free child and was endentured as a servant to Reid family along with her sister Margaret.  Their mother traveled on to Sydney with their two younger brothers.

Ann HONEYMAN'S father was a convict, transported to Sydney in 1817 and who died in 1821 after a daring attempt to abscond. Unbeknown to his family who were attempting a reunion and traveling out from Scotland.

Timothy was returned to his father on his discharge from the Orphange.,Campbell ROY who arrived in Tasmania a convict in 1825 and was assigned to Captain Wood of Dennistoun. This is where Campbell and Ann met and married in 1828.  Ann who died in childbirth is buried in a private cemetery in Dennistoun.

Campbell, unable to care for his young son had him admitted to the orphanage at 3yrs of age with the support of his master Captain Wood.

Campbell met and married Margaret WALL in 1834 at Bothwell, also a convict, both still under sentence and it was likely Campbell's good record which permitted such a union between convicts still under sentence, as Margarets record is colourful and checkered. 

Timothy was discharged from the orphanage in 1839 and was reunited with his father and stepmother. The family resided in Bothwell until Timothy was sent to live with his maternal Grandmother in the Hunter Valley NSW,

Timothy met and married Martha McMillan in 1851 while working as a labourer on the Williams River and they had a very large and colourful family who ranged throughout the Hunter Valley.  Timothy and Martha ended up in Taree, Martha fortunately was a very strong minded woman able to temper her husband, and her large colourful and rowdy brood of children.

Timothy died in 1910 and is buried at the Wesleyan Cemetery on the Dawson River at Taree NSW. Throughout his life he worked at many occupations, spending many years as a Gold miner following the search for gold and in the early years, taking his large family along with him.

Campbell ROY, his father also pursued the search for gold and is buried at Beaufort Vic, near Ballarat where he lived for some years with his wife Margaret, known as Peggy.

Timothy Charles Roy is my Great Grandfather, from this one son of Campbell  & Ann (Honeyman) Roy's, we have a very large family running into the hundreds if not more, we are now trying to get all the branches & twigs of our tree in touch with each other so the younger generation know their history & can keep it a work in progress.

I feel sad that Timothy never got to know his mothher, 17 is so young to lose your life, Dennistoun, Bothwell is a beautiful place to grow up in the wide open spaces, sadder still is his younger step brother David Wall (orphan 5467) passed away so young that they never became mates

Campbell, Timothy father lost his mum at a young age, we don't have any information on her, did she die in childbirth as well, then he loses his father at a young age too, would Timothy have been here if Campbell's parents hadn't died, questions that can't be answered but so happy we live in this lucky country

My great great great grandfather is Timothy Charles Roy, how sad he lost his mother so early & was sent to an orphanage. That would have been very scary for a little kid & sad his mummy didn't see him grow up & have a good life. We had a family reunion this year, I got to meet cousins I've never met before, we will be having another one next year

Great great great grandfather I wished I could of met you

Love & Hug from your great great great granddaughter Peta Patrice xxxx
