Name Meaning

English: from Middle English chirch(e)man ‘clergyman; churchwarden; lay official responsible for church finances’. The earliest examples would have denoted a custodian or keeper of a church (Old English cyriceman), not a clergyman, though the earlier sense had probably been superseded by the time the surname arose.Possibly an Americanized form (translation into English) of German Kirchmann (see Kirchman ).
