Biography

Flag of Worcestershire (adopted 2013)
James Ruff was born in Worcestershire, England.

James was born in Abberton, Worcestershire, England. Son of Edward Ruff and Elizabeth. He was baptised on the 9th of December 1787. [1] [2] [3]

He married Elizabeth Lea, on the 24th of September 1807, in Inkberrow, Worcesershire, England.[4] [5] [6] [3] Together they had seven children.

  1. Ann [7] [8]
  2. Mary [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14]
  3. John [15] [16] [17]
  4. Elizabeth [18] [19] [20]
  5. Emma [21] [22] [23] [24] [25]
  6. James [26] [27]
  7. Jane [6] [3] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32]

James ran a vegetable shop in Birmingham, [33] and lists his occupation as Dealer in vegetables on the 1851 census. [3]

James passed away in 1855 aged 68 years old. [34] He was buried at Warstone Lane Cemetery, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England. [35]

Research Notes

  • According to the millenium file Elizabeth Lee was the mother of Mary Ruff, Elizabeth Ruff, James Ruff and Jane Ruff. I could not find a marriage record between James Ruff and Elizabeth Lee, but I haven' seen the original image of the marriage register, so Elizabeth's surname could well have been mistranscribed as Lacy rather than Lea / Lee. I Have searched Fee Reg, Ancestry, Family Search, Find My Past.
  • I then researched the ancestors and descendents of James Ruff and Elizabeth Lea, I found that Elizabeth Lee was daughter of Anthony Lea and Anne London. The London family were certainly closely related to the Ruff family from my research. So can only presume that Elizabeth Lea is the correct surname at birth for James Ruff's wife at this time.
