The origins of the Childerhouse name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in or near an orphanage; the location of the specific orphanage that gave rise to the surname Childerhouse is not known in modern times. The surname Childerhouse may have also been a nickname for an orphan, or an occupational name applied to someone who ran an orphanage. Further research showed the name was derived from the Old English word cildra-hus, which means children's house or orphanage.

Childerhouse Early Origins



The surname Childerhouse was first found in Yorkshire 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.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Childerhouse family emigrate to North America: T.J. and W.J. Childress who arrived in San Francisco, California, in 1850.
