The surname was originally derived from the variant Cerdiceleagh when translated means the meadow of Cerdic.

Migration of the Charsly family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Charslys to arrive in North America: 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.
