John Rockwell's unnamed paternal grandfather is said to have been born at Rockwell Hall in Boroughbridge, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England, though I cannot locate such a place. The mystery may one day be solved by reading Donald Shumway Rockwell's Eleven Centuries of the Remote Ancestry of the Rockwell Family (Berkeley, California: The Gillick Press, 1914), through which "the Rockwell family comes into posession of a priceless heritage, a noble lineage of the royal blood of England and France, brave heroes of many a hard-won battle which more than once turned the tide of history."
