Where did the English Crudgington family come from? What is the English Crudgington family crest and coat of arms? When did the Crudgington family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Crudgington family history?Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Crudgington is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the village of Crotynden. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the place name Cruttenden, which was in the county of Kent.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Crudgington has been spelled many different ways, including Crittenden, Cruttenden, Critenden, Crutenden and many more.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Crudgingtons to arrive in North America: George Crittenden who arrived in San Francisco in 1852 with his wife, six children, and two servants; Albert Crittenden, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1876.
The Crudgington Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Crudgington Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
