Roach Genealogy & History

Roach is originally a French surname from the word roche, used to describe someone living near a rocky crag or les Roches in Normandy. Like many French things, it was brought over to England in the Norman Invasion and took deep roots there, being used to name various towns and families, including one in Cork County. Roach family history starts with John de Roches, noted in the Domesday Book of Bedfordshire in 1086. Roach genealogy lays claim to several well-known people, like director and producer Hal Roach, award-winning drummer Max Roach, and Roche's limit namesake French astronomer Eduard Roche.
