Does anyone have any info on the ancestry of Richard Roach who appears on the 1761 Rent Rolls of Loudoun Co., VA?

He married Hanna SANDS, b. 28 Aug 1721, and they had at least two daughters:
i. Tabitha Roach, d. 7 Dec 1823 in Hamilton, Loudoun Co., VA;

Tabitha was b. 1 Jan. 1747 dau. of Richard Roach and his wife Hannah Sands b. 28 Aug. 1721 dau. of Edmund Sands and his 1st wife Mary Coates. Tabitha with her parents were accepted into membership with the Fairfax Friends Meeting at Waterford, Loudon Co., in 1747. Her m. out of unity to George Tavenner resulted in her dismissal from the meeting (Quakers).

"8th mo 1766: Peter Beason requests a certificate to Hopewell MM. Tabitha Tavenner, formerly Roach, has gone out in marriage with a man not of our society. She is also with child, supposedly by him before their marriage." [Marty Hiatt, "Early Church Records of Loudound Co., Virginia 1745-1800" (Westminister, MD: Willow Bend Books, 2000), p. 73.]

"8th mo 1766: ... Tabitha Tavener {formerly Roach) married out of unity, (appeared with child by him)."[Ibid., p. 119]

ii. Sarah Roach, b. 22 Apr 1760 in Loudoun Co., VA, m. Robert WHITACER, b. 30 Sep 1758 in NJ.

Richard Roach is my 6th great grandfather.
