He and his descendants have been named after the castle Cseszneky.Between 1326 and 1392 it was a royal castle, when King Sigismund offered it to the House of Garai in lieu of the Macsó Banate.In 1482 the male line of the Garai family died out, and King Matthias Corvinus donated the castle to the Szapolyai family.
