The Cron surname is thought to be derived from the Old English word "crumb," which meant "bent" or "crooked." The name may have been a nickname for a crippled person, or it may have been an occupational name for a maker or seller of hooks. There are also several place names in Britain, such as Croom, East Yorkshire and Croome, Worcestershire from which surnames may have evolved.
