Mees Family History

Recorded as Mees, Meese, Meece, and possibly others, this is an English surname. It is almost certainly locational from Mease, a river in Leicestershire, two villages called Meece, as well as Meese Brook and Meeson, all places in the county of Staffordshire. However a number of researchers have suggested that it could be a form of the personal and surname Matthew and others from the personal and surname Bartholomew. Matthew was and remains, a highly popular medieval personal name of Hebrew origin, which was brought back to Europe from the Holy Land by returning Christian Crusader knights and pilgrims.
