Featured Most Wanted: Our earliest Roy is James, father of James, John and Thomas. James jr was born in Co Fermanagh, Ireland about 1850. We have two candidates for a James Roy (senior) in Co Fermanagh at that time - one from Royal Ulster Constabulary files and one from a Civil Marriage Registration. Or maybe it is the same person? See the notes under Most Wanted and James Roy.
