Cherk'ezishvili was a Georgian noble family, descended from the Circassian chieftains of Great Kabarda, whence the surname, literally meaning "children/descendants of a Circassian" in Georgian. They settled in Kakheti (eastern Georgia) in the seventeenth century, and attained to a princely dingity of tavadi. Under the Russian rule they were confirmed, in 1829 and 1850, in the princely nobility as knyaz Cherkezov (Черкезовы) or Tcherkesoff.
