The surname Chambliss is locational in origin and means "one who came from Chambles", a town in Southern France, and it meant a curve or bend in the road. ---Elsdon C. Smith's New Dictionary of American Family Names
Originally four brothers came from France to England to America. The family was of French Ruguenot descent. One brother settled in Virginia, one in North Carolina, one in Tennessee and the youngest, John, moved to Alabama in 1820. The first Chamblisses were small in stature and blue eyed. ---Archives History, Montgomery, Alabama.
