The surname Roselle was brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "Roc-el," a diminutive of "Rosce," which is itself derived from the Old French "rous," meaning "red." It is likely that the name was first bestowed as a nickname on someone with red hair or a red complexion.
