Adam de la Roche, was a descendant of Godebert de Fleming and the father of David de la Roche.
Adam built Roch(e) Castle circa 1200, he also founded Pill Priory, Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire, Wales.
A legend told of the castle's founder, Adam de la Roche, whose fear of a prophecy that he would be killed by a viper's bite led him to choose this isolated site. Apparently he was unable to avoid his fate, for a viper, concealed in a bundle of firewood, found its way into the castle and fulfilled the prophecy.
