Rocheid


ROCHEID (pronounced Rougheid), a surname obviously having a personal origin. The old family of Rocheid of Craigleith and Inverleith, near Edinburgh, in allusion to the name, bore a crest of the head of a man in profile all rough and hairy. In 1704 a baronetcy was conferred on this ancient family, which terminated with Sir James Rocheid, the second baronet, whose daughter and co-heir, Mary, married Sir Francis Kinloch of Gilmerton, baronet, and her third son, on succeeding to the estates of his maternal grandfather, took the name of Rocheid. His son, James Rocheid of Inverleith, an eminent agriculturist, on whose property the villas of Inverleith Row, in t he immediate neighbourhood of Edinburgh, are built, died in 1824.
