An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Crowder surname means "a professional player, or entertainer of a crowd," a crowd being the name of a six string violin popular in the British Isles for many centuries. The instrument is still called a 'crwth' in Wales today, and in Ireland a "cruit." In the west of England a fiddle is still called a 'crowdy-kit'. "It appears to have been a favourite instrument in Britain so early as the VI century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.


Crowder Early Origins



The surname Crowder was first found in Yorkshire, where the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Katerina Crowder and Thomas Crouder. These are the strongest listings of the name but there are others. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list Richard le Cruder in Kent and later William le Crouther was listed in Cheshire.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: En Dieu est ma fiance
Motto Translation: In God is my trust.
