    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from the city of Chichester in Sussex, probably named with the Old English personal name Cissa + Old English ceaster ‘Roman fort’. (Cissa is attested as the name of a historical person; it is of uncertain etymology.) Alternatively, the first element may be an Old English word cisse ‘gravelly feature’.
