Where did the Scottish Crone family come from? What is the Scottish Crone family crest and coat of arms? When did the Crone family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Crone family history?

Rugged coastal mountains and the windswept Hebrides islands were the home of the first family to use the name Crone. It was originally given to a person with blond hair. The Scottish name Crone was originally derived from the Gaelic word "cron", which means saffron, yellow-colored or dark, and refers to the complexion or hair coloring of the original bearer.


Many spelling variations of Crone have been recorded over the years, including Crone, Cron, Cronie and others.

First found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, 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.

Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independence, many Scots who remained loyal to the Crown re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as Clan societies and highland games sprang up across North America. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Crones to arrive on North American shores:
