Church Genealogy & History

Church genealogy appears in the written records for the first time in Britain in the thirteenth century. It can originally be either a locational or occupational surname. If it is the former, it would have referred to someone who lived near a church. If the latter, it would have meant someone who was in charge of a church. The word church derives from the Old English "cyrice" and originally from the Greek "Kyriakon," meaning "house of the Lord." Church family history includes Robert Reed Church, the first African-American millionaire, as well as actor Thomas Haden Church.
