French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used. The early development of the French language relied heavily on borrowing elements and grammar from other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Croiset is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Crozet, Crouzet, Croizet, Crouzette, Croizette, Cruisette, Crozette, Crozett, Cruiset, Crossier, Crozzet, Croizett, Crozier, Crouzettes, Croizettes, Cruisettes, Crozettes, Crousset, Crousett, Crousette, Croiset, Croisette, Crusier, Cruisette, Crozzier, Croizzet, Crouzzet, Crozzette, Crozzettes and many more.

First found in Auvergne, a historic province in south central France where this eminent family held a family seat since ancient times.

France was active as a cultural leader in the early 16th century. One particular area in which they lead was the exploration of the New World. The explorers, like Jacques Cartier in 1534, led the way to North America. Champlain, in 1608, made the first of twenty voyages to France to attract settlers and brought the first migrant in 1617. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec, and the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The family name Croiset has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Croiset were James Crozer settled in Philadelphia in 1830; Adolphe Crozet, aged 22, settled in New York in 1820; and John B.M. Crozet who settled in Philadelphia in 1808..
