Crumb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Scottish


The rugged west coast of Scotland and the desolate Hebrides islands are thought to be the ancestral home of the ancestors of the Crumb family name. The Crumb surname is thought to be derived from the place named Crombie in the parish of Aucterless in the former county of Aberdeenshire. Crombie comes from the Gaelic "crom," which means "crooked." However, in some instances, bearers of this name are no doubt descended from Macilchrum.

Early Origins of the Crumb family


The surname Crumb was first found in several areas of Scotland. The lands of Crummy, which belonged to the Abbey of Culross, Fifeshire, were built on land gifted by Malcolm, 7th Earl of Fife, in 1217. A John Crumme is on record in 1532, when he was excommunicated under letters of the Official of Lothian. Patrick Crummy of Carriden was keeper of the havens of Carriden in 1565.
