      Information from Tipperary North Family History Research Service via Ivan ASHBURY.
      The Rolleston family first arrived in Ireland from England in 1610, in the reign of James I.
      The Rollestons were a gentry family in the Offaly panhandle, so the marriage with the Ashburys who were in trades was interesting. The first relates to the widow of James Franck Rolleston marrying a cabinet maker of Dublin. Archer may have been a maker of fine furniture for the gentry (an elevated station is suggested by the other Archer parties being a clergyman and a military officer), but this is nonetheless another link into trade for this family. It may also be noted that Mary was baptised five months after her parents marriage.
      1784 : James Frank Roleston of Dunkerrin was Appointed High Sheriff of Kings County. See The London Gazette: no. 12525. p. 3. 6 March 1784. [2]
