The Anglo-Saxon name Charslay comes from when the family resided in the village of Chearsley, in the county of Buckingham just miles from Thames. The surname was originally derived from the variant Cerdiceleagh when translated means the meadow of Cerdic. This surname is one of the habitation names which form a broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
