Perthshire Scotland > Scottish Clan Names > Rollo

In 1380 John Rollo received a charter to the lands of Duncrub, near Dunning, from Robert II.

The original family seat was Duncrub Castle of which little now remains.

Lord Rollo of Duncrub was beheaded in 1645 after being captured at the Battle of Philiphaugh. He had joined Montrose in his ill fated rebellion in Scotland in support of Charles I while the Scottish army was in England fighting on the Parliamentary side.

The 4th Lord Rollo fought with the Earl of Mar for the Jacobite cause in the rebellion of 1715 but was later pardoned.
