Awlyncrume History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Awlyncrume. It was a name for someone who lived in Roxburghshire (Borders) at Ancrum, a small village which had earlier been called Alncromb, which literally meant "a bend in the river Ale."

Early Origins of the Awlyncrume family


The surname Awlyncrume was first found in Dumbartonshire, where they held a family seat in the lands of Ancrum from about the 11th century.

Migration of the Awlyncrume family to the New World and Oceana


The number of Strathclyde Clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Among them: William Ancrum who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1766.
