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

The ancestors of the bearers of the Cramblit family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in Worcester. The surname is derived from the word Crump, which originated as a nickname for a person who was crooked in the physical sense of stooping with age or illness.


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Cramblit include Cramp, Cram, Cromp, Crompe, Cramb, Crampe, Crame and many more.

First found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat from early times.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Cramblit or a variant listed above: John Cram, who settled in Exeter in 1639; Elizabeth and John Cram settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1732 and 1753 respectively; G. P. and S. Cram settled in San Francisco Cal. 1851.


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Fide et amore
Motto Translation: By fidelity and love.
