Croxmant 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 Croxmant family name include Crossman, Crosseman, Crosman, Croseman, Croixman, Croisman, Croxman, Croceman, Crossmen, Crossemen, Crosmen, Crossmann, Crosmann, Crouceman, Croiceman and many more.

Migration of the Croxmant family to the New World and Oceana


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 Croxmant surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Crossman who settled in Virginia in 1637. John Crossman settled in Sutton and was one of the original purchasers of land from the Indians in the year 1639. John was originally from Taunton, Somerset, England. He had one known son, Robert.
