Roschild Surname Origin
From a town in Denmark, which is said to take its name from a river with which it is watered that drives several mills. Roe, in the ancient Danish language, signifies a king, and kille, a stream of water or brook, i. e., the king's brook. Some have given the signification 'Red-shield' to the name, from Roth, red.

Roschild Surname Meaning and Family Facts
There is more to Roschild family history than the origin of your surname:
A Roschild Family History Thought:
'In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum. An emptiness. And the most disquieting loneliness.' --Alex Haley
