Chezus is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having 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.

Chezus 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 Chezus family name include Cheesehouse, Cheeshus, Chezus, Cheshus, Chezhus, Cheeshouse, Cheeshous, Cheesehous, Gesors and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, 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 Chezus surname or a spelling variation of the name include: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
