CHALMERS Family History

This interesting surname is a Scottish variant of the English occupational name Chambers, and derives from the Old French "cha(u)mber", room, chamber, ultimately from the Latin "camera". This occupational name denoted an officer charged with the management of his lord's private living quarters. In medieval times, servants in royal households were held in high regard, and frequently those who occupied senior positions enjoyed certain privileges, and the post would often become hereditary. One Nicholas de Chambres was noted in the 1219 Curia Regis Rolls of Derbyshire, and a Robert de la Chaumbre of Lanarkshire, Scotland, rendered homage in 1296.
