    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place so named in Lincolnshire. The placename, recorded in the Domesday book as Cheuelestune, is probably from an Old Norse personal name Gjǫfull + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, village’.

    Irish (Antrim and Down): it is possible that this name has been adopted as an Anglicized form of Irish Mac Giolla tSeanáin, see Gilsenan .
