Origin of the Name Crosby

The Crosby family history was found in the archives. The names Crosby and Crosbie in Ireland were adopted by some families of the Gaelic Mac an Chrosain Sept of Leix. This Gaelic name was also anglicized as MacCrossan. Crosby was also introduced into Ulster Province by settlers from England and Scotland , especially during the seventeenth century. This name can also mean 'of Crosby', a locational name from Cumberland, Lincoln, and Lancaster in England . This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland , and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Thomas de Crosby, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379, and a Henry Otway Brand and Pyne Crosbie, who were married at Saint George Hanover Square in 1806.
The Crosby coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Crosby descendants.
