Rowntree Family History


The names Rowntree and Roantree in Ireland have been in the country since the fourteenth century and are of Anglo origin initially. These names were introduced by settlers, especially into Counties Cavan and Armagh where the majority of descendants can still be found. Rountree, Rowan, Rohan and Ruane are variants of this name.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
