RUSH Family History

Recorded as Rush, Rushe, Rosher, Rusher, Rushman (British Isles), Risch, Rischer, Rosch, Roscher (German), and many other spellings, this very interesting surname has at least four possible origins.

The derivation is from the ancient word 'rysc', meaning reeds or rushes. The Scottish and many Irish nameholders derive their name from 'risag' which has the same meaning of rush, and in Scotland the name also developed into Ruske and Risk...
