Sources and links:
- many thanks to Carolyn Scott for mailing most of this information on the Rudd family.
- many thanks to Betty Shillingford for further information and the UK photos, particularly, descendants of Maria RUDD (1821-1899) - which includes herself.
- a possible relative to Joseph RUDD (1788-1852) is William RUDD (1767-) who was also born in Diss. William married Susan Smith and amongst his sons was a Zachariah whose descendants emigrated to America in 1927 from Banham, England. Could William be Joseph's father or more likely, his uncle?
