The surname Crannifard was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Crannifard family to the New World and Oceana

On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States.
