    Notes 
    • THE NAME AND FAMILY OF CHEATHAM.
      CHEATHAM, anciently Chetham or Cheetham, is derived from the residence of its first bearers at a place of that name in Manchester, England. The word itself means "Ceatta's Home or Estate", being derived from the Old English personal name of Ceatta. Although all three of the variant spellings mentioned above are occassionally in evidence in modern times, along with Cheathem, Cheathame, the form most frequently found in America today is that which heads this article, Cheatham.
      Lancaster, Chester, Suffolk, Derby and London were among the earliest seats of the family in England. These lines appear to have belonged, in large part, to the lesser nobility and to the landed genty of Great Brittian.
