The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Critchlow come from when the family resided in or near some small settlement called either Critchlow or Chritchlow; experts theorize that thiswas probably near Chorley in the county of Lancashire. The surname Critchlow belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Critchlow Early Origins



The surname Critchlow was first found in Gloucestershire 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Critchlow or a variant listed above:
