Rueb, a Dutch family of German descent, whose ancestor was Johann Peter Rueb (died 1707), of Trarbach on the Moselle. His grandson Johannes Stephanus Rueb (died 1788), a Lutheran, moved to Dordrecht, Holland, where he was a wine merchant. A son of Johannes Stephanus was Christoffel Rueb (1775-1865), a sugar broker at Rotterdam. He married Petronella van Heukelom (1782-1852), a Mennonite of Leiden. Then most of his descendants became Mennonites, including his son Adolph Stephanus Rueb (1805-54), a physician at Utrecht, and the following members, all living at Rotterdam: Pieter Rueb (1810-1848), Jan Rueb (1807-71), Pieter Rueb (1812-1894), Willem Rueb (1855-1944), Adolph Stephanus Rueb (1880-1948), Pieter Rueb (1888-1958), and Willem Rueb (born 1917), all of whom served the Rotterdam Mennonite congregation as deacons. At Rotterdam the Rueb family has a vinegar distillery.
