    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in Leicestershire, recorded in Domesday Book as Cilebi. It was probably originally named with the Old English elements cild ( see Child ) + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. Compare Chilton . The second element was then replaced some time after the Danish invasions by the Old Norse form býr.
