The West Australian (Perth, WA) Wednesday 2 October 1907
News was received in Perth on Monday last of the decease of the Rev. J. S. H. Royce. F.R.G.S.. F.L.S. one of the oldest Wesleyan Methodist ministers in Victoria. The late reverend gentleman was one of the early missionaries to Fiji, he having entered on the work there so far back as 1857. Failing health forced him to return to the colonies in 1861, and up to the year 1887 he laboured in Tasmania and Victoria. About two years ago he found it necessary to undergo a serious operation, from which he never fully recovered. His end was not unexpected by the members of his family, and he passed away peacefully on Sunday morning last. Of his two surviving sons, Mr. J. Hamilton Royce, the headmaster of the Woodlupine State School, is the eldest.
