The surname Cahalane belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.The forbears of the name Cahalane no doubt lived in any of such places as Carlton in Bedfordshire, Cambridge, Durham, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northumberland, Suffolk, or the East Riding of Yorkshire, or in one of the places called Carleton in Cumberland Lancashire, Norfolk, or the West Riding of Yorkshire. First found in Herefordshire, a present day county in Western England, and scene of much border warfare between the Welsh and English through the Middle Ages, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
