Roger was born at Old Alresford, Hampshire, Essex, England, and died 75 years later in Virginia. He was the first Shackelford immigrant, transported to America by Edward Palmer, his wife's father, and receiving land grants in Virginia around 1678. It is said that four lines of Shackelfords who moved to Alabama descend from Roger, who was born April 23, 1629 and died in 1704, Gloucester Co, VA.
