Chickering Name Meaning
English: unexplained. It is known that the Chickering(e)s or Chickring(e)s who were in Dedham, MA, by c.1670 were originally from Wrentham, Suffolk. However, only four Chickerings (all in Staffordshire) and one Chickring (from Devon) were recorded in the 1881 British census and the surname since seems to have died out altogether in the British Isles.
