Roulstone Early Origins



The surname Roulstone was first found in Staffordshire at Rolleston, a parish, in the union of Burton-upon-Trent, N. division of the hundred of Offlow. Sometimes called Rolleston on Dove, the village is near the River Dove. While there are two other villages named Rolleston, one in Leicestershire and another in Nottinghamshire, the family originates from Staffordshire "which in very early times, and for a long series of generations, belonged to the family."
