Thomas Roylance married Eleanor Goodwin at St. Luke's Middlesex on 18th February 1818. He returned to England with seven other naval surgeons on the vessel Shipley departing Sydney in April 1819. 
Thomas and Eleanor's son John Thomas Bell Roylance was born 29 July 1821.
Thomas Roylance was court-martialed in 1825 for striking a purser.
Many of our Readers may recollect Dr. Roylance, who has made more than one voyage to these Colonies, as Surgeon Superintendent. We make the following extract from Courier of Sept. 28:—“A Court Martial was held on board the Britannia on Thursday, on Mr. Thomas Christie Roylance, surgeon of the Bittern, for striking the purser when in the execution of his duty, at Liverpool, which charge being proved, he was sentenced to be dismissed the ship.
