Where did the English Crumpler family come from? What is the English Crumpler family crest and coat of arms? When did the Crumpler family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Crumpler family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Crumpler comes from its first bearer, who was a person with an abnormal curvature of the spine. The surname Crumpler is derived from the Old English word crump, which means bent or crooked.


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.

First found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
