Surname meaning for "Childers"

English: probably a habitational name from some lost place named Childerhouse, from Old English cildra, genitive plural of cild ‘child’ + hus ‘house’. This may have referred to some form of orphanage perhaps run by a religious order, or perhaps the first element is to be understood in its later sense as a term of status (see Child).
