The name Charsly is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived 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.

The Great Migration



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.
