Surname Saturday: Chalcraft

October 5, 2013

CHALCRAFT is English in origin. By accounts it is a location name from Old English cealf ‘calf’ + croft ‘enclosure.’

My Chalcraft ancestors came from Surrey, England – the south eastern part of England. My great-great-grandfather, Francis CHALCRAFT, came to Nova Scotia Canada. His son, Charles, eventually immigrated to the United States first to Massachusetts and then finally settling in the New York City area.

There is another line of the CHALCRAFT family that settled quite heavily in Illinois, USA … and I’m still trying to find any connection to that line.
