KRAUSE Family History

Derived from the Old Middle German 'Krus' - this name is a nickname for a person with 'curly hair' and is equivalent to the English, Crisp or Cripps. There are a number of alternative spellings including Kraus, Krause, Krauss, Krauze, Kruse, the original recordings being found in Vienna (Austria), Basle (Switzerland), Berlin and Nuremberg (Germany). Although not an early recording in Britain (for obvious reasons), the Rev. William Krause (1796-1852) was born in Ireland, joined the British Army and fought at Waterloo.
