Ching Family HistoryThis very interesting surname has been the subject of in-depth research by family members. Basically the origin is Olde English pre 10th century, the "de Hals" element is West Country from one of the various places called" Hals or Halse" in Somerset and Devon, the word describing a neck or saddle of land, and the hamlet or village thereon. The preposition "de" was used by the clerics for several centuries after the 1066 invasion, but fell into disuse as the French language was phased out. The prefix element "Ching" is again Olde English deriving from either "cin" meaning chin, or "cinu" a cleft or steep valley.
