Russell Genealogy & History

Russell is an English surname of Norman French origins, a diminutive patronymic meaning "the son of Red", from the Old French rous, meaning red and used for red-haired people, and -el, the diminutive suffix, which also means little. Russell family history entered the books with Robert Rousel, recorded in the Winton Rolls of Hampshire in 1115, and traveled to the New World in 1634, when John Russell sailed from London to Virginia. Russell genealogy boasts many famous people, like logician and philosopher Bertrand Russell, seven-term Georgia Senator Richard Russell, and American astronomer Henry Norris Russell, co-creater of the Hertzsprung-Russell stellar dynamics diagram.
