  1. *Argentinian (Spanish [Andalusian, Castilian, Extremaduran, Leonese], Basque, Galician), Italian, remote Portuguese (father)

    thats very confusing

    please stop to confuse people with that shit

    i have no time to find out what LEONESE or campudan etc. mean

  2. He was born on 22 August 1961.

    Change his paternal grandfather’s ethnicity to Argentinian (Spanish [Andalusian, Castilian, Extremaduran, Leonese], Basque, Galician), Italian, remote Portuguese

    Roland’s mother’s is Margaret (Menzies).

    Roland’s paternal grandfather was Raúl Mariano (later Raoul) Orzabal de la Quintana (the son of Arturo Orzabal Guardo and Benjamina de la Quintana). Arturo was the son of Mariano Orzabal and Jesús Guardo. Benjamina was the daughter of José Cayetano Alberto del Carmen Pérez de la Quintana y Martínez and Adela Alcorta Isnardi.

    Also, correct that Arturo and Benjamina were not immigrants. All of Raoul’s parents and grandparents were born in Argentina. I don’t see indigenous ancestors for now.

    Roland’s maternal grandfather was Alexander George Menzies (the son of Robert Percival Menzies and Sarah Elizabeth Crofts). Robert was the son of Alexander Menzies, whose own father, John Menzies, was Scottish, from Ween, Perthshire, and of Elizabeth Jackson. Sarah was the daughter of George Crofts and Jane Elizabeth Smith.

    Roland’s maternal grandmother was Sybille Mary Ellis Wynn (the daughter of Rowland Turner Jarvis Wynn and Mary Jane Ellis). Rowland was the son of William Turner Wynn and Mary Ann Pratt. Roland’s great-grandmother Mary was the son of Edward Ellis and Elizabeth Mary Ann Painter.
