Cherington History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Cherington is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Cherington family lived in Bedfordshire, at Charrington Hall.


Early Origins of the Cherington family


The surname Cherington was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Cherington Spelling Variations


Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Charrington, Charington, Chariton and others.
