The Anglo-Saxon name Rosendale comes 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.

Rosendale Early Origins

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 Rosendale or a variant listed above:
