The name Cheeshous is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived near the cheese house, the building where the village cheese was made and stored. The name would have been applied to a person who lived near the building in which the villagers kept their supply of cheese. The Modern English word cheese is derived from the Old English word cese and the West Saxon word cyse, which both mean cheese.

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 Cheeshouss to arrive in North America: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
