Here is the lineage of James Franck R and the main Irish branch:
1.William Rolleston, lord of Rolleston in Staffordshire, 1547-1593. 2.Arthur Rolleston, 1580-1670, went to Ireland in 1610, younger brother of Gilbert R, last lord of Rolleston. 3.Francis Rolleston, ?-1690, was at co. Kilkenny by 1683. 4.Arthur Rolleston, 1663/4-1720, resided at Tomlough. 5.Francis Rolleston, 1700-1779, married Frances Everingham, adopted d/o Capt James Franck of Franckfort, sister & heiress of James Franck, his son.She brought Franckfort castle to the Rollestons in marriage. 6. James Franck Rolleston, 1742-1800, married his cousin Eleanor Rolleston, married secondly Jane Bagge, who had issue: 7. James Franck Rolleston, 1767-1826, died without issue.Made his nephew his heir. 8.

Arthur George Rolleston, 1883-1968, 2nd son of Thomas William Rolleston the Irish writer and poet, succeeded his 2nd cousin at Franckfort.
I am unsure of the succession after Arthur.There are a large number of descendants of the family in Ireland and England and overseas.
