The name Crumpton first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in Crompton, a township in the county of Lancashire. This place-name is derived from the Old English word Crometun, when translated means those who lived by a well or spring.

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Crumpton has appeared include Crompton, Cromptone, Crompten and others.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Crumpton arrived in North America very early: Elizabeth Crompton who settled in Maryland in 1775; Henry Crompton settled in Virginia in 1660; Margaret Crompton settled in Barbados in 1663.
