Re: Rutts from Germany to Russia 1730 to 1765
My ancestor was William Rutt who was living in Shoreditch in London in 1821. On his sons Thomas birth cert in 1822 which was at St Leonards Church Shoredtich he is listed as a shoemaker. He married in 1821 in St Andrews Holborn to an Elizabeth Hankin. On his death cert and on childrens marriage cert he is listed as a Silk Weaver. On his death in 1837 he is living in Newington Lambeth. Elizabeth then was living with her sons. Her sons were Wood Sawyers and lived in Lambeth. The son born Thomas in 1822 had a son called Henry Hermann Rutt. I presume Hermann is a german/russian name. Do you think there is any connection with your Rutts.
