The following suggested connection is highly speculative for it seems that there have in the past been serious attempts to identify how the undermentioned Rowland connected with the above family but that none have succeeded. However, Armstrong reports that it was clear that Rowland was a close kinsman of the above brothers Raymond & James but was not another son of the above Roland. We speculate that he may have been first cousin of Raymond & James, as follows.
  ii. ?? Savage
  a. Rowland (Roland) Savage, lord of the Little Ards, co. Down (d 12.02.1572)
