Name Meaning

English and Scottish: habitational name from places near Manchester, in Berwickshire Dumfriesshire, and elsewhere, all named from the British word that lies behind Welsh eglwys ‘church’ (from Latin ecclesia, Greek ekklēsia ‘gathering’, ‘assembly’). Such places would have been the sites of notable pre-Anglo-Saxon churches or Christian communities.
