An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Scotland with its rugged terrain and rich ancestry was the beginning of the ancient family tree of the Cranstoombe family. In Scotland, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Cranstoombe family lived in Edinburghshire.

Cranstoombe Early Origins



The surname Cranstoombe was first found in Edinburghshire, a former county, now part of the Midlothian council area where Eric de Cranston witnessed a charter by William the Lion in the 12th century. An Andrew de Cragestone of Edinburghshire rendered homage to King Edward of England during his brief conquest of Scotland in 1296. It is thought that this name was actually Cranestone, as his seal bore the 'Cranstoun' crane. His son, another Andrew was the first recognized Chief of the Cranstouns, in 1338.
