Clan Crozier (crosier, croser,
cros, etc.) is one of the border reiving clans of Scotland, along with the
Armstrongs, Elliots, and Nixons. Some sources cite the surname as a sept of
the Armstrong clan, but the Scottish Parliament in 1587 identified the
Croziers as a middle march clan.
An armigerous clan is a clan without a chief, and a sept is a clan which
follows a chief. So an armigerous clan like Clan Armstrong, since it does
not have a chief, does not have septs. Clan Crozier, not having a chief by
the Lord Lyon King of Arms, is an armigerous clan allied with the far more
populous Clan Armstrong.
