Cheeseright is an old Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a maker of the village cheese. The surname Cheeseright can be traced to the Old English cesewyrhta which means "a cheese-maker." This profession was very important in the medieval period; in the days before refrigeration, milk could be kept for a day or two at most, and the only way to ensure a long term supply of dairy products was to make it into cheese. The suffix -wright was usually adopted by a someone who provided a service with either wood or machinery.

Migration of the Cheeseright family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cheeseright or a variant listed above: Paul Cheeswright who sailed to Georgia in 1732.
