Origins of surname

This surname has several origins, one of them being the village of Rots, near Caen in Normandy. But it is likely that the family came to Jersey from England rather than France

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was for the baptism of Magdalen, daughter of Thomas and Mary Ross, in 1731. This baptism was followed in 1732 by the first of six children of Laughlin Ross and Dorcas Paven
