Crowley


Crowley crest
In form Crowley is English, a habitation name from an Old English term meaning 'wood of the crows', and no doubt some of those in Ireland bearing the name derive from English stock. However the vast majority are of Gaelic Irish extraction with Crowley an anglicization of O' Cruadhlaoich from cruadh and laoch meaning hardly and warrior. The Cruadhlaoch from whom the family take their name was in fact one of the MacDermots of Moylurg in Connacht who lived probably in the thirteenth century. Some members of the family migrated from Connacht to Co. Cork and their descendants prospered and multiplied while the original western branch of the family declined. The vast majority of Irish Crowleys today are connected to the Cork branch and that country is still home for most of them.
