Russ Genealogy & History

Russ is a general European surname, from the old Germanic rous, meaning red. There are many spelling variations all over the continent, and Russ in particular is more common in England, and thus its colonies as well, eventually. It may have been used by the Norman invaders for the natives, since red hair was a more prominent feature in the British Isles than Normandy. Russ family history starts in 1225, when Wilkin Rous was recorded as a witness at the Assize Court of Lancashire. Russ genealogy includes Ruston founder Robert Russ and actor and director Tim Russ.
