Crecelius is another of those latinised nammes that seem to be cropping up on the board with increasing regularity. Have a look at this website for a credible explanation:
http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~kmparker/gen/Surname%20Reports/cris.htmAccording to the Oxford Dictionary of Surnames Ruehle is a Low German version of a name we know in English as Rollo. This traces back to the Norse given name Rolf which started life in the form Hrodwulf ("red wolf"?).
