Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name, probably from Kershaw in Middleton (Lancashire), named as ‘church wood’ (Old Norse kirkja ‘church’ + Old English sceaga ‘small wood, copse’). There are two minor places in Yorkshire called Kershaw, which may have been named after families bearing the Lancashire surname.
