The Ruffing surname is derived from the Latin personal (first) name Rufinus, which gained early popularity as the name of a few minor Saints.

Ruffing Early Origins



The surname Ruffing was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1203 when they held estates.
