CRUMLEY Family History

Both England and Ireland lay some claim to the origin of this surname. Our research indicates that probably the surname occured almost simultaneously in both countries, although from different sources, it is confused by the fact that some Irish nameholders are probably descendants of English 16th century settlers! To take the English nameholders first. The name is recorded in the spellings of Crumly, Crumley, Cromley and Cramley, and as such is clearly locational. However no such place deriving from the Olde English 'crumb-legh' (The crooked clearing) exists in the gazetteers.

I am tracing my husbands family. We get stopped at a John Crumley 1690, in possible Yorkshire. His son, James 1712, Yorkshire, migrated to the United States in the early 1700s. His wife was a Catherine Gulkey who was already in the states.
