The German surname Creekmore is derived from the Old German word "Kretscham," meaning "inn." The name was most likely first borne by an innkeeper.

Creekmore Early Origins



The surname Creekmore was first found in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. The earliest recorded bearer was Henczel Kreczmar, who lived in Jitschin in 1363.
