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.

Message (#585):My paternal ancestry comes from Glanworth, Cork, Ireland. My great-great-grandfather was Francis Everard Roche (sometimes with an Allen in there, too!). He had 5 children with his first wife, Annie. She did not come with him from Ireland. He married again in Utah. Her name was Caroline. His son, Francis Allen Everard Roche was my great-grandfather. He married Sarah Bradford. They had 10 sons. The second was my grandfather, Francis Vernon Roche. He was born in Box Elder, Utah and died in 1979. My father was Vernon Roche. Anyone out there have any information about Francis and Annie Roche?

Message (#584):Hi everyone. I am looking for information on Edward Roche and/or his son John. Edward was a bootmaker and ladies show importer in Cork city from about 1813 to is death in 1847. He owned (or had a lease on) first 31 Patrick Street then 94 Patrick Street. His wife Eliza and his son John took over the business at that time but Eliza retired in 1853 (the article says they were in business for 40 years!). John ran it until he either immigrated to Boston with his wife Mary Anne Scully Roche and his kids or he died around 1868-1875. John is never found in any records here in the U.S. and my family lore is that he was driven out of town for some reason (maybe for defying the union workers that made the shoes/boots). Is anyone out there related?
