Origin of the Crumpler Surname

These are some theories as to the origin of the Crumpler surname.  Each is presented here for informational purposes only with no claims as to proof.
Crumpler is an occupational name for the Old English cromphet – a flat, thin cake which was often fried on a griddle. In Medieval England, the Cromplers or Crumplers made and sold these "crompled cakes". They were favorite items at county fairs, market days, and festivals, similar to our doughnuts today. Tea and crumpets are a favorite afternoon snack in England and Scotland even today.

A version by one of the well respected authorities in the UK on surnames - P.H. REANY

His theory is based on the start position of a man from 'Cromwell' in the county of Nottinghamshire. Two alternatives are given based on surnames found to be in use.

Alternative 1 - Cromwell - to - Crumwell - to - Crumbwell - to - Crumbweller - to - Crumbler - to - CRUMPLER

Alternative 2 - Cromweller pronounced Crumler - to - CRUMPLER
