In 1642, he ('''Capt. Joseph Royall Jr.''') received 600 more acres for transporting twelve people, including his third (to be) wife, '''Katherine Banks'''. This plot bounded the lands of Edward Maddox, "above Shirley hundred ac, on the river, to Dickinsons Creeke." His plantation eventually grew to 1100 acres, and he built a residence called ''Doghams'', named after the French river ''D'Augham''. This tract of land remained in the possession of the ''Royall Family'' for about 300 years. : Died: 1 December 1686 (age 59), Bermuda Hundred, Turkey Island, Henrico Co, Virginia : Burial: Randolph Family Cemetery, Presque Isle, Henrico County, Virginia. : Her will was admitted for probate, written 10 Oct 1686. : Father: [[Banks-1672|'''Christopher BANKS''']]: Spouse (1): '''Joseph ROYALL Jr.''' (1600 - 1655)*, and Katherine BANKS were married about 1645 in, Henrico, VA. : Children were: ::1.

Henry ISHAM Jr. ::2. Anne ISHAM ::3. Mary ISHAM, m. married Col. William Randolph *Calculated relationship === An American Great Grandmother: Katherine Banks === by scottbthompsonsr, The Courier Herald Dublin, GA Katherine Banks was born into a prosperous family in Canterbury, England in County Kent in 1627, the same year the Massachusetts Bay Colony had been chartered to colonize the eastern coast of North America. Her father, Christopher Banks, was one of England's most influential commoners in his position with the Old London Company, which financed the settlement of Jamestown and Virginia. Sometime in the early 1640s, Katherine journeyed to America, landing in Charles City County, west of Jamestown on the James River. It was not long after her arrival that she married her cousin, Joseph Royall, twice a widower and 27 years her senior. Royall had come to Jamestown aboard the ''Charitie'' in July 1622, just after Powhatan Chief Opechancanough had murdered three hundred and forty-seven colonists. Royall survived "the burning fever," which killed even more settlers. By transporting colonists to Virginia, Joseph Royall was able to accumulate a large plantation, which he called "Doghams" after the French river D'Augham, on the James River above Shirley and opposite current day Hopewell, Virginia. Joseph Royall died in the mid 1650s. As was the custom in those days, his wife's dower from his estate passed to her during her widowhood. When Katherine married Henry Isham in 1656, Royall's estate passed to Isham, who immediately added another wing to his residence on Bermuda Hundred. From their luxurious home encircled by tall pines and a extensive English flower garden, the Ishams became leaders of Virginia society. It has been said that Katherine Banks Royall Isham was the wealthiest woman in America. Her father gave her one of the first English coaches to be used in the colonies. It was described as cumbrous and capacious. It held six individuals, three on a seat opposite one another. Two others could sit on stools which faced the doors. Its body was hung high on large springs and was entered by steps. The lining was made of cream-colored cloth. Silver trimmings, cords and tassels accented the exquisite exterior. The driver and the footman sat on the front, while luggage was carried in the rear. By her first husband, Katherine gave birth to six children, Joseph, John, Sarah, Katherine and two other unknown daughters. With Captain Henry Isham was born in 1626 in Pytchley, Northampton, England. He died on 1 Dec 1686 in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico, VA. He married Elizabeth Kathrine Banks in 1656 in Henrico, VA., Katherine had Henry, Jr. and Anne. But by far, her most famous child was '''Mary Isham'''. '''Mary''' was a much courted belle of Virginia. Suitors swarmed to get a glance of this charming young woman, who played the cittern, a three-stringed early version of the mandolin. Mary captured the heart of the wealthy William Randolph of Turkey Island. Over the next three centuries, the couple would come to be known as "the Adam and Eve of Virginia." === Find a Grave === : '''Katherine Banks-Royall Isham''' : Born: 1627, Canterbury, Kent County, England: Died: 1 December 1686, Bermuda Hundred, Turkey Island, Henrico Co, Virginia: Burial: ''Randolph Family Cemetery'', Presque Isle, Henrico Co, Virginia : Father: '''Christopher Banks'''. : First marriage was to, ''Joseph Royall'' (1600 - 1655)* and secondly '''Henry Isham''' (1628 - 1678)* : Children:::1.
