Cromptume is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Crompton, a township in the county of Lancashire. This place-name is derived from the Old English word Crometun, when translated means those who lived by a well or spring.

Cromptume Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Cromptume family name include Crompton, Cromptone, Crompten and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Cromptume surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Elizabeth Crompton who settled in Maryland in 1775; Henry Crompton settled in Virginia in 1660; Margaret Crompton settled in Barbados in 1663.
