Toponymy[ edit ] Cheshire’s name was originally derived from an early name for Chester, and was first recorded as Legeceasterscir in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle , [2] meaning the shire of the city of legions. Prehistory[ edit ] Cheshire periodically lay under ice until the end of the Younger Dryas ice age about 11, years ago. However, primitive tools have been found that date to the Hoxnian Interglacial , between , and , years BP , showing that Cheshire was inhabited at that time, probably by Homo heidelbergensis.
