Creox was first used as a surname by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. The ancestors of the Creox family lived in the lands of Creech in Fife.

Creox Early Origins



The surname Creox was first found in Fife, at Creech, derived from the ancient Celtic word "crug" which means a mound or hill.[1]CITATION[CLOSE]

While the surname hails from Scotland, there are at least two listing of the same name further south in England, specifically Creech East in Dorset and Creech St. Michael in Somerset. Both date back to the Domesday Book where they were listed as Cris and Crixe, respectively.[2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North America. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Creox: Stephen Creigh who settled in Philadelphia in 1850.
