Where did the English Rusin family come from? What is the English Rusin family crest and coat of arms? When did the Rusin family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Rusin family history?

The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Rusin come from when the family resided in the village of Rosindale near Clitheroe in the county of Lancashire. The surname was originally derived from two elements, rosen meaning roses and dahl referring to a valley. In this case the original bearers of the surname lived in a valley full of roses.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Rusin has been recorded under many different variations, including Rosindale, Rosendale, Rosedale, Rosedell, Rosdell and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Rusin or a variant listed above:
