Childress Genealogy & History

Childress genealogy is English. The word derives from the Old English cildra-hus, meaning children's house or orphanage. Therefore the name originally may have referred to someone who lived at or near an orphanage or someone who ran an orphanage. It is not known whether there was a specific orphanage that originally gave rise to the name Childress, though it first appears in written records in Yorkshire. The earliest spelling on record is Childerhus. There are many notable Americans with Childress family history, such as George C. Childress, principal author of the Texas Declaration of Independence, and novelist Mark Childress.
