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.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Charsliegh were among those contributors: Garrett Cheesly, who came to Virginia in 1664; Charles Charslay, who settled in Ontario in 1871; and Thomas Cheasley, who settled in Ontario in 1871.
