Cherrington in Shropshire is probably named from the Old English personal name Ceorra + -ing- denoting association (or alternatively from Old English cerring ‘river bend’) + tun ‘settlement’, ‘estate’, but others (Cherington in Gloucestershire and Cherrington in Warwickshire) are from Old English cyrice ‘church’ + tun. Places called Cheriton in Devon, Hampshire, Kent, and Somerset also have this last etymology.
