The ancestors of the Cheshus surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they 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.

Cheshus Early Origins

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
