The surname Crothon was first found in Thomond (Irish: Tuadh Mumhan), literally North Thomond, the pre-Norman Kingdom of Thomond, since divided between counties Limerick, Tipperary and Clare, where the Crothon family was anciently seated as a branch of the O'Brien Clan, whose history in Tipperary and Waterford dates back before the Norman invasion of 1172.
