Crane Name Origin: Scottish
The name Crane was first used among the Boernician people of the Scottish-English border region.
It is a name for a person whose was tall, and had long legs. This nickname derived from the Old English words cranuc, and cornuc, which mean crane.
First found in Suffolk where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were:
Jasper Crane who settled in Boston Mass. in 1637; Richard Crane settled in Virginia in 1635; Samuel Crane settled in Virginia in 1653; Mary Crane settled in Virginia in 1684.
