Where did the English Croom family come from? What is the English Croom family crest and coat of arms? When did the Croom family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Croom family history?

The Croom surname is thought to be derived from the Old English word "crumb," which meant "bent" or "crooked." The name may have been a nickname for a crippled person, or it may have been an occupational name for a maker or seller of hooks. There are also several place names in Britain, such as Croom, East Yorkshire and Croome, Worcestershire from which surnames may have evolved.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 13th century when they held estates in that shire.
