The Ruff family in our tree were from Herefordshire and Radnorshire. Thomas Ruff who was born about 1802 in Beguildy, Radnorshire, is at the head of this family. We know from census records that his wife’s name was Mary and that they had ten children, Thomas worked as a labourer at Knill and Nash, both in Herefordshire.
Thomas and Mary’s son James married Fanny Boundford in 1875, in Radnorshire. In the 1871 census James and Fanny were both working at the same farm, Ddollugau, at Bleddfa, Radnorshire.
James and Fanny had a family at Llangunllo, Radnorshire, where James was a farm worker.
One of their sons, Richard Ruff, born in 1883, married Mary Elizabeth Davies in 1906. Richard worked for the railways, and worked on his farm when he came home from his railway work. Richard and Mary had five daughters.
We found more of James and Fanny’s family in Radnorshire in the census records, and have had some information from family members, but would still like to find out more about the Ruffs.
