Solomon Royes was Solomon Hougham's nephew, being married to Hougham's sister, Sarah. Royes had been apprentice to Hougham. Royes entered his mark on 22nd February 1820 and another on 26th November 1822. Solomon Royes was the last in the line of this partnership. This mark is quite rare and we do not know how long he was in business on his own after John East Dix left. The sugar tongs are large and plain as was standard for this period. They are dated 1820/21.
