Memorable Manitobans: Charles Henri Royal (1867-?)

Lawyer.

Born at Montreal, Quebec on 31 August 1867, son of Joseph Royal, he came to Manitoba in 1870 and was educated at St. Boniface College, from which he graduated in 1888. He studied law in the office of Ewart, Fisher & Wilson and, in 1891, was called to the Manitoba Bar. From 1892 to 1894, he practiced in partnership with Frank Mulvey, after which worked alone. He served as Mayor of St. Boniface in 1902 and president of the St. Boniface School Board from 1902 to 1905.

On 21 June 1897, he married Emma Gelley, daughter of J. E. Gelley, at Winnipeg. He was a member of the Winnipeg Historical Society, St. Boniface Historical Society, Knights of Columbus, and St. Boniface Roman Catholic Church.
