Crumpler History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
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. 
Early Origins of the Crumpler family
The surname Crumpler was first found in Herefordshire, where "Thomas Crump was mayor of Hereford in 1610. The Crumps are also established in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, and Monmouthshire, and further reference to them will be found under one or more of those counties." 
Looking back further, researchers found entries in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 with early spellings of the family: Richard le Crumppe, Salop (Shropshire); and Constancia Crompe, Oxfordshire. 
"The surname is well known in the United States. Bridget Crompe emigrated to Virginia in 1635, and Thomas Crompe was already settled there in 1634."
