Rothschild 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.
