Croxmynd History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The present generation of the Croxmynd family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in an area that was close to a wooden or stone cross, or a crossroads. The surname was originally derived from the word kross.

Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Croxmynd include Crossman, Crosseman, Crosman, Croseman, Croixman, Croisman, Croxman, Croceman, Crossmen, Crossemen, Crosmen, Crossmann, Crosmann, Crouceman, Croiceman and many more.

Migration of the Croxmynd family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Croxmynd were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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.
