    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from North or South Kelsey in Lincolnshire, so named from an uncertain initial element (perhaps an Old English personal name with genitive -es) + Old English ēg ‘island’.

    Possibly also an Americanized form of German Gelzer.

    History: William Kelsey was one of the founders of Hartford, CT, in 1635 (coming from Cambridge, MA with Thomas Hooker).
