The community of Royston lies along the southwestern shore of Comox Harbour, on Vancouver Island. This side of the bay was late to develop, and residents of Comox called it "New Siberia" because of its dense forests and lingering snow. The townsite was laid out by William Roy in 1890.
For many years the Comox Logging & Railway Co. ran trains through Courtenay and along the shore to a long pier in front of Royston, where the logs were tipped into the water to be sorted and assembled into booms. The booms were then towed to the mainland for milling.
