Meaning & History

The surname Choules is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a variant of Scholes, itself "a topographical name for someone who lived in a rough hut or shed", from the Northern Middle English 'scale, schole'. It may also be a habitational name from one of the various places named with this word, for example Scholes in Yorkshire, or Scales in Lancashire and Cumberland.
