    Name Meaning

    Dutch: habitational name, either from a farm named Rozenveld (there is one in Zeeland) or from one named Ruiseveld (there is one in Brabant). Rozenfeld could be a compound of Middle Dutch rose ‘wild rose’ (or ‘poppy’?) + velt ‘open country’, or, like Ruiseveld, of Middle Dutch rusch ‘rush, reed’ (roos- in field names) + velt, thus ‘open land growing with rushes’. If the source is Ruiseveld then Roosevelt is a variant of the Flemish surname Van Ruyssevelt, recorded as Roysevelt in 1646 and de Roosevelt in 1652.

    History: The two US presidents Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919) and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882–1945) and the latter's wife Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962) were all descended from a common ancestor, Claes Maertensz(en) van ‘t Rosevelt, who had settled in New Amsterdam in New Netherland (now New York City, NY) from the Netherlands in 1649. It is usually said that he was the son of Maertin Cornelissen Geldersman, who at about this time had bought the farm of Rozenveld (or Rosevelt) in Tholen, Zeeland, from Pieter Jorissen op het Rosevelt and his son Joris Pietersen. However, there is no proof of any kinship between the two men or that Claes came from Tholen. The family became prosperous with the growth of Manhattan. Theodore Roosevelt was born in New York City; his mother was of Irish and Huguenot descent (see Delano ). Franklin Delano Roosevelt was his 5th cousin.
