Woodruff Genealogy & History

Woodruff is a topographical name for someone living in or near an area overgrown with woodruff (a perennial plant in Great Britain and mainland Europe, commonly used both fresh and dried as a spice in Germany) from the Old English wudurofe, meaning woodruff, or a nickname for someone using the strongly-scented leaves as a perfume. Woodruff family history begins with Hugo Wuderove, added to the Knights Templar List of Lincolnshire in 1185. Woodruff genealogy boasts quite a few well-known people, such as Brigadier General Carle Woodruff, WWI General Roscoe Woodruff, and ABC World News Tonight anchor Bob Woodruff.
