Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from some lost place called Childerhouse, from Old English cildra, genitive plural of cild ‘child’ + hūs ‘house’. This may have referred to some form of orphanage perhaps run by a religious order, or perhaps the first element is to be understood in its later sense as a term of status (see Child ).
