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


The origins of the Rudstoombe name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Rudstoombe family emigrate to North America: Elizabeth Rudston, her husband, and child, who settled in Virginia in 1635.
