The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Crumpler has been spelled many different ways, including Crump, Crumpe, Crompe, Crum, Crummey, Crumb, Crumbe, Crombe, Crom, Cromm, Cromp, Crumm, Crommey, Crummie, Crummy, Crommie and many more.
