The many generations and branches of the Crioure family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a town crier, or for an officer of a court who made public announcements. These offices were important in the Middle Ages, since the majority of the population were illiterate; thus information could only be spread among the common people through verbal means. The surname Crioure is derived from the Old English word criere, which in turn came from the Old French word criere, which was the nominative case of the word crieur, which means crier.

Crioure Early Origins



The surname Crioure was first found in Worcestershire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Crioure family emigrate to North America: William Cryer who arrived in Maryland in 1722 and Jane Cryer in America in 1755.
