The surname Cromptant was first found in Lancashire at Crompton, a township, in the borough, parochial chapelry, and union of Oldham, parish of Prestwichcum-Oldham, hundred of Salford.

Migration of the Cromptant family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Cromptant, or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Crompton who settled in Maryland in 1775; Henry Crompton settled in Virginia in 1660; Margaret Crompton settled in Barbados in 1663.
