The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Chidgeley come from when the family resided in the township of Chidlow, which was in the parish of Malpas in Cheshire. The surname Chidgeley belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chidgeley Early Origins



The surname Chidgeley was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
