Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Criner is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the town of Cranwich, in Cheshire. Some evidence suggests that this place name may be derived from the German name Krannisch.

Criner Early Origins



The surname Criner was first found in Cheshire 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.

Criner Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence.

Criner has been spelled many different ways, including Crannage, Cranach, Cranadge, Cranage, Crannick, Crannock and many more.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Criners to arrive in North America: Edmund Cranage who settled in Virginia in 1637 with his wife Elizabeth, and daughters Margaret and Mary; Thomas Cranch settled in New York in 1821; Ely Crannage settled in Virginia in 1639..
