Message (#606):i Heard that the Roche family was in France at some point long long ago and killed a lot of the kings and royal family along with their enemies and the Roche's who done this moved to Ireland and changed their last name to roach so no french people could track them down and carried on being total badass's and killing their enimies, is this true?

Message (#605):Well hello! I never imagined so many Roaches would be searching for their families ties! My father (James A. Roach III of Philadelphia, PA) recently passed away and it prompted my search to figure out the family tree. HIs parents also lived in Philadelphia, PA (James A Roach II & Elizabeth Caden Roach). I believe the generation before my grandparents were the first generation to arrived in America via Ellis Island. (I'm guessing around 1816) My great grand parents names were James A. Roach and Ella Roach (Carroll). I know the family was originally from County Louth area of Ireland and has some ties to the Castleroche. Ella Roach (Carroll) was also a relative of Archbishop Carroll. I'm wondering if any of this information ties into anyone else's story? I'd love to hear about it and maybe put some of the pieces of the puzzle together. Thanks!

Message (#602):I am tracing my grandmother Catherine Roche, from Castlemartyr - County Cork. She came to the USA around 1912 with her sisters Rose, and May. They had a brother, John, that remained in Ireland, or England, I'm not sure. I'm looking to find relatives still in Ireland.

Message (#601):I am trying to find genealogy on my family . I have James Joseph Roche born 1829 Ireland married Eliz Mahony nee Broderick. Daughter Susanna may have been born 1852 in Cork area. There apparently was a issue in the family that caused them to leave Ireland and move to England and move from the Catholic Church to the Anglican church. My fear is due to this dispute James may have been disowned from the family. I may be the first Catholic in the family since them. My dream is to find my Irish roots and come to Ireland from Canada and find so relatives.

Message (#599):My father, Kenneth Thomas Roche, did not know his father but was given his last name and middle name. He felt that it was important to give me the same, though he never explained why. I have examined the information that is available on the internet and would appreciate any other information about; what could be my unknown family history on my father's side. Respectfully, Murray T Roche.

Message (#597):Hello from Australia. I came across your web-site by chance while researching the history of the Roche family in Australia - and was astonished that I could find no links to "my' Roches on this site. Then I realised that our Roche family came to Australia before your tree starts, and thought you might like to find a way of adding our side to the group. I am the great-great granddaughter of Laurence ROCHE (1813-1893) from "Cooleen", Kilkenny. My grandmother was Ethel Anne ROCHE and we believe her daughter (my mother) to be the oldest member of the Roche Clan in Australia. Laurence was the youngest of the four known children of John ROCHE and Anastasia O'NEILL - all of whom migrated to Australia between 1842 and 1852. These were Patrick (1800), Bridget (1803), James, who became Father John Paul (1807) and Laurence. This information comes from a family history book "The Roches of Adelong" which was produced for an Australian "muster" of the Roches in April 1987. I was very fortunate, more than 20 years ago, to have the opportunity of visiting Ireland for a couple of days and caught up with Christie Roche, who showed me around Castletown Roche, and the author Richard Roche who kindly gave me a copy of his book, "The Roches of Wexford". Sadly, most of my records of these meetings were stolen shortly before I left the UK in 1994 and I have been unable to re-establish contact since then. It would be wonderful to establish links with other Roches in Ireland. I have an Ancestry account (My User Name is RobinT67). Anyone interested in finding out more is welcome to view my tree A.G.R Uglow (I have Cornish ancestry on my paternal side). I look forward with hope to establishing links with my Irish cousins. Kind regards Robin

Message (#590):Hello I learned not long ago that my grandfather, James A. Roche, was born in southern Ireland, likely County Cork. I believe that he was born in 1885. He married Josephine A. Manser, whom I believe was born (likely in southern England)in 1888. They had three children, Denis Brian Roche(August 13, 1919, Salford, Lancashire - my father, Eileen D. Roche (June 1921, West Derby, Lancashire) and Kathleen E. Roche (June 1922, Salford, Lancashire). My grandfather and Kathleen died in June, 1941, in the London bombing. I have only managed to find a little bit of information from English records but could find nothing going back from the birth records of my father and two aunts for either my grandfather or grandmother. My mother once mentioned that she though my grandfather came from somewhere near Limerick. I am wondering if you might be able to help me in my search. Thank you so much.
