The origin of Minchew/Minshew is English. It's a variant of Minshull which comes from the placenames Church Minshull and Minshull Vernon in Cheshire, recorded as Munschulf in medieval documents. The place-name probably derives from the Old English personal name Mann, Monn + Old English scylfe ‘shelf, ledge’.
