Clan RUSSELL The surname Russell is generally allied to the French Rosel and is probably connected to "rous", red. The Russells of Aden in Aberdeenshire descend from one Rozel, Rosel or Russell, an English baron who accompanied Edward III of England at the siege of Berwick and at the Battle of Halidon Hill in 1333 and decided to settle in Scotland, being designated Russell of that Ilk. A Robert Russell of Berwickshire paid homage to Edward I in 1296 and Adam Rossel was received to the King of England's peace in 1321. RUSSELL: Many authorities give the name as originating in France - deriving from 'de Rozel' - and such might be the case for many. There is a common misconception that the name Russell comes from the word rousel, often stated as the diminutive of rous, the old French word for red. More recent research indicates that the name Russell stems originally from a Norman, Hugh de Rosel who arrived in England in 1066. Kind Regards, Charles Russell. Email:
