Roach Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Roach Family History


Roach Family History


The names Roche and Roach in Ireland are of Norman origin being derived from the name de Roiste, taken from a French word meaning 'rock'. The name was originally prominent in County Wexford but is now quite widespread, demonstrated by the fact that there are sixteen placenames called Rochestown throughout Ireland.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
