Roane Family Tree

Gilbert Roane

Sir Archibald Gilbert Roane son of Charles Roane was born in Argleshire, Scotland, Feb. 12,1669 at "Whitehall Castle". There is a link with our family during this time frame, but I can't determine what it is specifically.  Jeannet, his wife was born August 22, 1679.  For services rendered to King William III during the Battle of Boyne, he was granted land in Greenshaw, Ireland. The King's granted stated that, "the land will belong to him as long as the grass grows and the water runs".  Their children:

B.  Andrew b. July 17 1713, in Greenshaw, Ireland, died in Lancaster Pa. 1768.  His son Archibald Roane later became the Governor of Tennessee and Roane County is named after him.
