An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancestry of the name Rudstoom dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in Rudston, a place in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the medieval era; since the local government reorganization in England in 1974, it is found in Humberside. The place name Rudston is derived from the Old English elements rod and stan. Rod in this case means a crucifix; it was pronounced rood, which is its Modern English form. Stan means stone. The place name translates as "cross of stone," and was a place where a stone cross had been erected. Rudston Monolith, almost 26 feet high, close to Rudston Parish Church of All Saints is the tallest standing stone in Britain.[1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Rudstoom, or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Rudston, her husband, and child, who settled in Virginia in 1635.
