First found in Berkshire, where the name appeared in the early 13th century. The Councilman name is of somewhat uncertain origin. It comes from the old French word "conseil," meaning "council." It is probably of nickname origin, having been given to one who was wise, or fancied himself wise, and often gave advice or council to others. It could also have been of occupational origin, for one who offered council for a living, or of anecdotal origin, because the first bearer offered advice on an important situation or to an important person at one time.
