      Some sources on Scottish clan names state that "Monroe" means "Man of Roe," a river in Northern Ireland near which many Scots settled; hence the claims of Scots-Irish ancestry for Bill. But Clan Monroe has its roots firmly in the Scottish Highlands, specifically in Easter Ross, north of Moray Firth and the Great Glen. The name, first recorded around the twelfth century, may be from the Norman-influenced "Mon ROSSE" ("hillmen of Ross"). It is almost always spelled "Munro" in Scotland, and it was pronounced exactly that way by Bill's family, right into the twentieth century - MUN-ro, with emphasis on the first syllable.

      "...and in those of Westmoreland and King George counties, Virginia, relieves the matter of much of its difficulty. We learn from the first of these sources that the original residence of the immigrant ancestor, Andrew Monroe, was in Maryland, where he first commanded a pinnace in the service of Cuthbert Fenwick, general agent for Lord Baltimore. When Richard Ingle declared for the parliament, Monroe took sides against Lord Baltimore's government, and eventually, like Nathaniel Pope, ancestor of President Washington, Dr. Thomas Gerrard, and other leading Marylanders, fled over the Potomac to a settlement under the Virginia authority, at the mouth of Appomattox Creek, now called Mattox Creek, in Westmoreland county." --James Monroe; William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine, Vol. 4, No. 4; 189

      Andrew Monroe was the 3rd son of David Munro. Andrew, under his distinguished relative, General Sir George Munro I, of Newcome, fought with the rank of Major at the Battle of Preston, 17 August, 1648. Andrew was taken prisoner and banished to Virginia, America. Andrew managed to escape (or worked off his indentureship) and settled in Northumberland County, Virginia, where he had several grants of land made to him, the first extending to 200 acres, designated as one of the "Head Rights", being dated 8 Jan. 1650. Andrew died, leaving issue (according to Westmoreland Deed Book) as listed on the Family Page. (??"Moved from Scotland to Maryland c.1641, to Virginia, c.1648, and settled on Monroe Bay, Westmoreland County, Virginia)...(Major Monroe was born in Scotland, & came to Maryland before 1642 when he represented St. Mary's Co. in the Assembly. In 1648, due to religious troubles, he crossed the Potomac & seated himself in Westmoreland, and there received large patents on that creek now called Monroe Bay).

      Andrew began to write the name Munroe and it finally attained its present form, Monroe

      One source states: " Andrew (Munro) Monroe was a vicar/preacher who came to America in 1642.
      Andrew Munro was married to Elizabeth Alexander. They had six children. Andrew's brother William was the great grandfather of James Monroe, the fifth President of the USA."

      This same??? "Andrew Monroe emigrated from Scotland to America in 1650; he belonged to an ancient highland clan and was Captain in the service of Charles I. He received a grant of land on the borders of Monroe's Creek (so-called after the family) about one mile below Bluff Point and about four miles from Pope's Creek (where Washington was born) on the Potomac in Northumbefrland County. In the time of Charles II he retgurned to Scotland and induced others of his family to emigrate and another extensive grant of land in the same quarter was made to him by the Crown."

      On page 480 of MacKenzie's History is stated "Andrew, 3rd son of David Monro, fought with rank of Major at battle of Preston (Lancashire) 17th Aug. 1648. Was taken prisoner there and banished to Virginia, America. He escaped and settled in Northumberland County, Virginia, where he had a grant of 200 acres land dated 8th June 1650. He married and had issue, from whom President James Monroe was probably descended."

      QUOTE: from Mr. James D. Evans, a descendant of the Monroe family, and an ardent student of genealogy:--"The identity & derivation of the immigrant, the 1st Andrew Monroe, has not, I think, been settled by the assumption that he was indubitably the Major Andrew Monroe, 3rd son of David Munro of Scotland who participated in the Battle of Preston and being taken prisoner by the English (1648) was banished to Virginia. The article which appears in the William and Mary quarterly, written by Mr. Edward S. lewis of St. Louis, which attempts to substantiate that identity is by no means conclusive. It presents nothing more than an interesting conjecture but no evidence except indentity of name. There is very positive proof that Andrew Monroe who appeared in Virginia and westmoreland county in 1650 and patented lands on what later became known as Monroe's Creek, and who can be none other than the first of the Monroes who for generations remained in unbroken line in that vicinity, came there from St. Mary's County, Maryland, and was the same as is traceable in the Maryland Archives back to 1642 in the same place. He appears there to have been assessed 50 lbs. of tobacco in July 1642, to support the war against the susquehanna Indians (Md. Assy. Proceedings V. 2-30/2 Entry Book #53) and again as a freeholder represented in the Assembly by Capt. Thos. Cornwallis on 22 august 1642 (Md. Arch. Acts of Assy. V. I-165). On 24 February 1647 he was defendant in a suit of Mrs Mary Brent in which he was decreed to pay her 400 lbs. of Tobacco (Md. Arch. IV-330). On the 6 April 1648 Andrew Monroe signed with his mark as witness a deed of gift from Burgess Thomas Sturman to his son John Sturman to all his cattle and his shallop 'now in Maryland.' (Ib. 362). On 6 April 1648 Andrew Munrowe of Appomattox in Virginia (a point on the Potomac across the river from St. Mary's County, Maryland) made a bill of sale for a feifer 2 years old to Thos. Sturman which was witnessed by John sturman (Ib-383). It is likely, if not certain, that Andrew Monroe went to Virginia from Maryland in 1647, with Thomas Youell and Thomas Sturman. These two men originally steeled in Kent isle in the Chesapeake--1st claimed by Col. Wm. Clayburn of the Virginia Council who settled it in 1634 or earlier but was in 1638 dispossessed by Lord Calvery. In 1647/8 Thomas Sturman and Andrew Monroe left St. Mary's and settled near Youell in Westmoreland. county. John Sturman later also crossed into Virginia where he married Elizabeth, daughter of Patrick & Dorcas Spence, the sister of Elanor Spence, who married Andrew the 2nd, son of Andrew the 1st, the Immigrant.
