The ancient name of Cheezey finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a cheese-maker or seller of cheese. The surname Cheezey is derived from the Old English word cese and the West Saxon word cyse, which both mean cheese. Occupational names frequently refer to the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames. The surname Cheezey belongs to this class of names.

Cheezey Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Cheezey family name include Cheese, Chese, Chuse, Chouse, Cheser, Chesse and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Cheezey surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Edmund Cheese who arrived in New York in 1832 and Robert Cheese in Mississippi in 1890.
