Hello Tony,

I have some information on the Rusz from Poplar.
It is possible that your William was one of at least ten children from
the marriage of Robert Lewis Rusz and Sarah Ann Abbott.
Roberts father was Jacob Wilhelm Rusz was born 1810 in Germany.

If so they had children William, Charlotte, Sarah, Henry and Thomas, again in Poplar - whilst I appreciate that only the boys would carry on the name - is there anyone out there interested in London who has come across the name RUSZ about that era. The name is so unusual".
