CHOWN Family HistoryThis unusual surname is derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name Chun, (of uncertain origin). It is recorded as a personal name in the Hundred Rolls of Cambridgeshire in 1273, as Chun Pimme and Chun Pistor, although coincidentaly that year also sees the first recording (see below) of the surname. After the late 14th Century, 'Chun' as a personal disappears completely from all records, but from this time on variations of the surname start to make their appearance. Examples of these forms include Hugh Chone in the 1275 Pipe Rolls of Oxfordshire, Robertus Chaume in the Poll Tax Register for Yorkshire in 1379, whilst Thomas Chowme appears in the register of Canterbury Cathedral in 1688.
