Origin, Meaning and Family History of the Crook Name

This rare name has two possible origins. The first one is a primitive geographical surname, symbolizing habitation from the English word ‘crok’, from the Old Norse ‘krokr’. The name may also be a figure of speech representing occupational surname for a seller, maker, or user of hooks, originating from the same source. The second possibility of origin is from the Old Norse nickname ‘krokr’, that means ‘crooked’ or ‘bent’, and initially used of someone with a hunched back.

It was also used to describe someone residing by a curve in a road or a river. The surname has several variations in terms of its spellings; Crooke, Cruik, Crok, Cruke, Cruikes and Crukes are some of the commonly used spellings. On October 7th 1618, Stepney and William Crooke married Ann Powell at St. Mary Alder Mary, London. The Crook family was granted with a coat of arms that portrays three green birds on an ermine (black field with white spots) having semicircular indentation fess (central horizontal band) on a blue field among three gold eagles with wings expanded. A gold eagle is on the crest with expanded wings. Dating back to 1086, Rainald Croc was the first family name to be spelled during the reign of King William 1, known as “The Conqueror”. Another source quotes that in 1297, Robert de Crokis was the first recorded spelling of the family name during the reign of King Edward 1.
