Of this surname in its English
ROE forms of Row and Rowe is said by

Lower to be possibly derived from
the word "row", applied to a street or rather
a detached row of houses. In some cases,
he thinks, it may be derived from a parish
of the same name in Dumbartonshire, Scot-
land. Or again he thinks it may be taken
from the Gaelic word "rhu", signifying a
low, detached, narrow peninsula. Rowe
without any prefix is found in the Hundred
Rolls of England. The name has also been
fancifully derived from Roo or Rollo, the
famous leader of the Danes in the ninth
century. Whatever may be said about the
English name of Rowe. however, there is
no question concerning the derivation of the
patronymic of the Roe families of Ireland
who have in many cases preserved their
pedigrees n\cr a period of two thousand

years. The Roes of Ireland are a branch
of the O'Neills of Tyrone, who were mon-
archs of Ireland for over five hundred years,
Princes of Tyrone, and Kings of Ulster.
The name itself is taken from Niall Ruadh
("ruadh" in Irish or Gaelic means "red",
applied to a warrior with red flowing locks),
who is one hundred and eleven on the pedi-
gree of the O'Neills of Ulster, and the chief
ancestor of the Roe family. The old form
of the name in Gaelic was O'Ruaiadh, and
has been anglicised into Rowe and Roe, "d"
when followed by an aspirate in Gaelic re-
maining silent. This Niall Ruadh was a
Prince of Ulster, and was married to Nuala,
who died in 1226. the daughter of Roderic
O'Cnncubhair or O'Conor. the hundred and
eighty-third monarch of Ireland. The son
of Niall Ruadh was Brian Catha Dun, in the
direct line of the Roes, who is reckoned as
the one hundred and eighty-fourth monarch
of Ireland. Under the date A. D. 1258 the
"Annals of the Four Masters" says of this
Brian : "Hugh, the son of Felim O'Conor
and Teige O'Brian, marched with a great
force to Caol Uisge (near the present New-
ry) to hold a conference with Brian O'Neill,
to whom the foregoing chiefs granted the
sovereignty over the Irish, and they agreed
that the hostages of Hugh O'Conor should
be given to him as sureties for the fulfiH-
ment of tliis compact, and the hostages of
the O'Reilly's people and also those of the
Hy-Bruin, from Kells to DrumclifT, should
be likewise given to Hugh, the son of Felim
O'Conor." After tliis Brian's death on the
battlefield of Drom Deirg at Dunleathglas
(now Downpatrick), commanding the Irish
forces against the English, he was succeed-
ed in the Principality of Ulster by the cele-
brated Hugh Buidhe, son of Donal Oge, son
of Hugh Dubh, the ancestor of the O'Neills
of Clanaboy. There are several branches of
this interesting Roe family that have pre-
served all the links in their remarkable pedi-
gree down to the present generation, nota-
ble among them being that of Henry Roe,
Esq., of Dublin. The arms of the family
are described heraldically : Ar. two lions
rampant, combatant gu. armed and langued
az. supporting a sinister red hand couped at
