Origins of surname
This family name had its origins in the now lost village of the same name somewhere in England. It is derived from the old English words cerse = 'cress' and lacu = 'stream or lake', thus a stream where watercress grew.
The surname first appeared in St Helier baptism registers in the 1820s.
