Chisholm Genealogy & History

Chisholm is a Scottish name. It was originally locational, given to people who lived in a town named Chisholme, located in southern Scotland. That name was derived by combining the Old English words cese, meaning cheese, and holm, meaning a dry piece of land in a fen. Chisholm family history is first recorded with one John de Chesholme (an alternate spelling), written in the papal records of Pope Alexander IV in 1254. Chisholm genealogy includes Shirley Chisholm, who in 1968 became the first black woman elected to the US Congress. The Chisholm family motto is feros ferio, which means I am fierce with the fierce.
