He was a soldier and farmer, was born on 29 April 1860 at Durban, South Africa, son of William Royston, civil engineer. He was educated at Durban High School where his chunky build and fierce patriotism won him the nickname ‘John Bull’. Absconding from school he joined the Isipingo Mounted Rifles with which he served at Ginginhlovo and at the Relief of Eshowe. He fought in the Zulu War in 1879 and by 1884 was a sergeant in the newly formed Natal Mounted Rifles.

At the age of 82 years, Brigadier John Robinson Royston passed away and according to his wish to stay near his beloved Mildred to ‘protect’ her even in death, was buried on the property, some 20 paces from the front door. In about 1978 his remains were removed and re-interred at Heroes Acre in Durban.
