The first Baron Teynham commissioned a genealogist to work up a genealogy of the Roper family. The result was recorded in a book and a large parchment roll called the Roper Roll, c1636. The contents of the Roper Roll can be found in the Latter Day Saints Genealogy Library, Salt Lake City UT, film #1751697, Item 11. The 20th Baron Teynham showed me the book and the Roper Roll in his home near Lymington, England.
