Charles Genealogy & History

Charles is the English form of a name that is extremely widespread throughout Europe and the world in a variety of forms. It derives from a pre-fifth-century Germanic given name, Churl or Carl, which meant basically "man," but usually referred to a freeman who was below noble status. Some of the myriad versions of the name Charles include Carlo in Italy, Karol in Poland, and of course Karl and Carl in Germany and elsewhere. Charles genealogy may therefore be very diverse, though the name is English. Charles family history in England is first seen in Suffolk and appears to be quite ancient.
