Hello, My name is Emma Rudderforth. My Father was born in Hull and he, alongside with his side of the family, still live in Hull. I've found out only today that, My Grand father's father was one of 6 boys all born in Hull. He Stayed in Hull however, I am led to believe the others moved to America. I have recently been united with my Great great aunt on facebook. She was born in Washington DC. It's really nice to hear there are other Rudderforths in England. I'd like to stay in touch and definately work out in what way we are related. I'm positive we are as this is such a rare name and I have never met anyone with the same surname as me except relatives. Keep in touch.
