An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


Rugged coastal mountains and the windswept Hebrides islands were the home of the first family to use the name MacCroent. It was originally given to a person with blond hair. The Scottish name Crone was originally derived from the Gaelic word "cron", which means saffron, yellow-colored or dark, and refers to the complexion or hair coloring of the original bearer.

MacCroent Early Origins



The surname MacCroent was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independence, many Scots who remained loyal to the Crown re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as Clan societies and highland games sprang up across North Ameri ca. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first MacCroents to arrive on North American shores: William Crone who settled in Annapolis, Maryland in 1773; August Crone, who settled in New England in 1772; as well as James McCrone, who was naturalized in Vermilion county, Illinois in 1876..
