    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place called as ‘the high church’ or possibly the higher of two churches, from Middle English up ‘up, high, higher’ + chirche ‘church’ (Old English upp + cirice). There is a village of this name in Kent, near Chatham, but the geographical distribution of the surname suggests its origin is in Huntingdonshire or Cambridgeshire.
