ROLL Family History

Recorded as Role, Roll, Rule, Rolls, Rolles, Rolse, Rowles, and others as shown below, this is a medieval English surname which with the suffix 's' is a patronymic meaning 'son of'. However its origins are both 11th century Norman-French and pre 6th century Germanic from the male given name Roul or Rolf. The ultimate origin lies in the ancient name 'Hrolf', a fused compound of the elements "hrod" meaning renown, and "wulf," a wolf. This name seems to have reached England by two separate channels.
