The Descendants of William Roy I of Perthshire, Scotland...

Alexander Roy (1877-1938) The Scottish surname, Roy, was derived from the Gaelic word, "ruadh", meaning brownish-red. This refers to the colour of hair.

My branch of the Roy Family has been traced back to Crieff, Scotland and the birth of William Roy (1786?). He married Janet Bain and had four children: Elizabeth, John, William and Andrew. William Roy moved to Dundee and married Margaret Hunter. They had seven children and their descendants produced five branches. Members of the Alexander Roy branch, the largest of the five, lived and are still living in Dundee. Some members who are part of this branch live in Canada and America.

Acknowledgement:

I am forever indebted to my newly-found cousin and aunt, William R. Roy, and Mary S. F. Roy, for all their hard work. They had already done the leg-work on our Roy Family. Two volumes on the family were published. William published Volume I and William and Mary, jointly, published Volume II. It was only in 2000 that I found my family.
