The name Cryour finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a town crier, or for an officer of a court who made public announcements. These offices were important in the Middle Ages, since the majority of the population were illiterate; thus information could only be spread among the common people through verbal means. The surname Cryour is derived from the Old English word criere, which in turn came from the Old French word criere, which was the nominative case of the word crieur, which means crier.

Cryour Early Origins



The surname Cryour was first found in Worcestershire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cryour or a variant listed above: William Cryer who arrived in Maryland in 1722 and Jane Cryer in America in 1755.
