Origins

The historical distribution of the surname Crundall and its variants appears to be in
three areas of England: Kent, Hampshire, and Worcestershire and surrounding
counties. The Kent family probably takes its name from Crondale, Kent, and that of
Hampshire probably from Crondal, Hampshire. The distribution of the family in
Worcestershire seems to have been in an area north and west of the town of
Worcester.

The will of Edmunde Crondall, of Awlfyrwych (Alfrick), in the parish of Suckley, was
proved in 1550; the administration of the estate of Roger Crundall, of Lee (Leigh) was
granted in 1565; the will of Philip Crondell, tailor, of Ombersley, was proved in 1587;
Thomas Crondall, gentleman, of Abberley, married in 1568; Margery Crondall, of
Shellesley Kings, married in 1575.1 The will of John Crandole, husbandman, of
Tanworth, Warwickshire, was proved in 1632.2 Humphrey Crundall of Dodenhill
(?Dodderhill, Worcestershire) was given a bequest by Humfrey Hardman, of Neene
Sollors, Shropshire, yeoman, in 1658, and Thomas and Humphrey Crundall, gentlemen,
were bequeathed a tenement in Ludlow, called "The Bull," by Richard James, of
Tottenham, in 1658.3

A glance at the map shows that these people lived in a general area northwest of the
city of Worcester, taking in neighboring Shropshire and Warwickshire. Since the
apparent founder of the Gloucestershire family first appears in Tewkesbury, only about
fifteen miles south of Worcester, we can feel confident in assuming that he was born in
this area. In support of this, we find that the name is absent from a 1522 list of
inhabitants of Gloucestershire.4

The geographical distribution of the name in Worcestershire in the 16th century would

suggest a single origin for this family. Near Bewdley, Worcestershire, are two localities,
Upper and Lower Crundles, both on rising ground.5 Bewdley is in the same area as the
concentration of the surname, and it is therefore not unlikely that a medieval ancestor
took his name from these Crundles. There was also a Crundall End in the parish of
Abberley.6

The first person in our family to appear was Edward Crondall, who was one of fifteen
residents of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, including the curate and the stipendiary
priest, to appear in a Bishop's visitation in 1548.7 Tewkesbury lies on the border with
Worcestershire, and he may have come to that town from that county. On 20 October
1564, the name Edward Crondall appears as curate of Tewkesbury in a legal case.8
Perhaps the second Edward was a son of the first. Nicholas, perhaps another son,
appears next.

Nicholas Crondall (Crundall), born, say, around 1530, perhaps in Tewkesbury,
Gloucestershire, died between 12 October and 6 November 1589 at Winterbourne,
Gloucestershire. On 16 November 1564, already a clergyman, he and John Louthe
appeared as magistrates in the parish acts of Tewkesbury.9 In 1565 he was the
incumbent of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire,10 as he was in 1566 and 1567.11 On 18 July
1567, there was a case against him.12 On 29 November 1572, Nicholas Crondall was
made the incumbent of Winterbourne, with the patronage of Mergerie, widow of Robert
Bradstone.13 On 3 April 1577, he was sworn and collated by the Bishop of Gloucester to
the rectory and parish church of Iron Acton, Gloucestershire.14

In 1583, a storm ruined the the Winterbourne church's stone steeple and damaged the
church, which developed into discord between "old Mr. parson Crondall" and his
parishioners.15

By his will, dated 12 October, proved 6 November 1589, he gave son Edward Crundall,
stlg*10; daughter Joane (under age), stlg30, to be delivered to William Llen (?), gent.,
who shall oversee; daughter Elizabeth, stlg10; son Nicholas Crundall, stlg20, my books
and best gown; kinswoman Lettice, 40s.; son James Crundall, remainder of estate and
advowson of the parsonage; James to be executor; William Llen to be overseer.16

The name of his wife is not known.

Children of Nicholas Crondall:

i. James Crondall, his executor. As he was bequeathed the advowson of the church of
Winterbourne, he must have been the eldest son of Nicholas. On 10 April 1590, James
Crondall, of Wynterbourne, yeoman, and John Hart, of there, clothier, were sureties for
payments to Nicholas Crundall, clerk, for 1590, 1591, and 1592.17 James Gondell [sic],
now "gentleman," was named as patron in a memorandum, dated at Winterbourne, 26
November 1600, for payments to Robert Bridges, successor to his brother Nicholas as
the incumbent.18 Perhaps James lived at Penterry, since William Crandall below
bequeathed money to the poor of that parish, which, if he followed custom, would have
been his parish of birth. The advowson of Winterbourne by 1632 had passed to Matthew
Buck, gentleman, lord of the Manor of Winterbourne,19 who received a bequest from
William, below. John and William were brothers and, because of their Winterbourne
associations and residence, must have belonged to this family. Although no evidence
has been found which would prove that they

were children of James, he, rather than Nicholas, was more likely the father of:

a. John Crandall, married 9 February 1606/7, at Henbury,
Gloucestershire, Margaret Pickett.20

He was of Winterbourne when in 1609 the administration of his
estate, worth stlg 33,6s.,8d. was granted to his brother William.21
Perhaps his wife was the sister Margaret mentioned by William in his
will.

b. William Crandall, died at sea in 1616. He served as quarter gunner
on the East India Company ship New Year's Gift, commanded by
Martin Pring, which on 17 January 1613/4 was preparing for a voyage.
It returned to England in June 1616,22 but he must have fell ill and
wrote his will on 20 May 1616. He gave to his daughter Elizabeth
(under age), stlg20; to sister Margaret Crandall, his "shath"; to Martin
Pringe, commander of the ship, he to be his daughter's guardian; to
Mrs. Pringe, two China girdles, and four pairs of garters to his
children; to Edward Graunte, steward, his cloak; to Anthonie
Goodson, a doublet cloth of white damask and a fine shirt; to Martin
Cheshire, gunner, two drinking cups; to Thomas Lambert one fine
shirt; to John Cole, twenty pounds of pepper, all the rest of his
apparel, linen and woolen, his bedding, and a jar of sugar; to John
Standright of Bristol, forty shillings; to the poor of Pentry,
Monmouthshire, twenty shillings; to Thomas Crowther, his gown; to
Mathewe Buck of Winterbourne, Gloucestershire,23 a piece of striped
taffeta and an ostrich egg shell; to his unnamed wife he gave 139
pounds of pepper, three pieces of silk, stlg3 in money, and all his
china dishes, and she was appointed executrix.24 Child:

1. Elizabeth Crandall. Perhaps
she married, on 18 May 1639, at

Clarke.25 Although this marriage
appears in the IGI, it does not
appear in the published
Minchinhampton parish register
and, until the marriage can be
verified, the identification must
remain very tentative.

ii. William Crondall, apprenticed 10 June 1573 to Ralph and Joan Dole, soapmaker of
Bristol, but died without issue before the date of his father's will.26

iii. Edward Crondall, baptized 12 September 1560 at Tewkesbury.27 In 1589, he and his
wife were charged by the Tewkesbury church for a room in seat with Robert Younge
and his wife.28

Children:29

a. Edward Crondall, bp. 16 Oct. 1583. He married,
1608 at Ashton under Hill, Glocs., Mary Willies. In
1610, he was made a freeman of Tewkesbury.30
Edward "Crondale" was charged for a pew in
Tewkesbury in 1615.31

b. Nicholas Crondall, bp. 13 Feb. 1585/6. Perhaps
he was the Nicholas Crandall whose daughter,
Margery, was baptized 18 February 1614 at St.
Peter, Droitwich, Worcestershire.

c. Kellam Crondall, bp. 7 Jan. 1588/9.

d. John Crondall, bp. 25 (or 28) Nov. 1591.

iv. Elizabeth Crundall.

v. Nicholas Crundall, who succeeded his father as incumbent of Winterbourne and was
presumably living in 1605 (if the record of the following burial is correct when it says
"wife"). He married Elizabeth ----, who, as "wife of Nicholas Crondall clericus," was
buried

at Winterbourne 20 June 1605.32 In 1593 another storm damaged the
steeple of the church, causing an even "greater varyance" between
him and his parish that what had happened to his father ten years
previously.33 On the 8th day of Holy Trinity, 36 Eliz. [3 June 1594],
Nicholas Crundall, clerk, and William Veale sued Elizabeth
Bradstone, defendant, of the Manor of Winterbourne, with
appurtenances and twenty messuages, etc., and forty shillings rent
in Winterbourne, and of the advowson of the church of Winterbourne.
Warranty was given to William and Nicholas and the heirs of Nicholas
against all men, and for this, William and Nicholas gave to Elizabeth
stlg 600.34 On 3 December 1597, Nicholas Crundall and William
Robinson, vicar of St. Nicholas, witnessed the will of Thomas
Mowrey, tailor, of St. Nicholas, Bristol.35 On 7 July 1599, the
Archbishop issued a license to two as yet unnamed priests to serve
the parish of Winterbourne, Nicholas Crundall being suspended from
the exercise of his function by the authority of the royal
commissions for ecclesiastical causes.36 His subsequent life has not
been determined. The James Crandall who lived in Westerleigh,
which borders the parish of Winterbourne, between 1617 and 1621
was most likely to have belonged to the Winterbourne family, since
he was clearly not part of the Thornbury family, the only other
Crandall or Crundall family in Gloucestershire. The administration
below unfortunately does not give the residences of either the older
James nor his nephew James, but the names fit well to belong to
this family, as well as the fact that John died overseas. Possible
children of Nicholas:

a. John Crundall, probably born about 1585 or a bit later, died
overseas, and the administration of his estate was granted in 1608 to
his paternal uncle

James Crundall, during the minority of James
Crundall, his brother, and Elizabeth, Deborah, Ann,
and Margaret, his sisters.37 Although the original
record gives no indication of the English residence
of his heirs, the fact that he died overseas at that
date could indicate Gloucestershire, as it was a
maritime county. A survey of Crundall records in
the International Genealogical Index (which is far
from complete, but still has relatively good
coverage for Worcestershire and Gloucestershire)
shows no other Jameses in the 16th and 17th
centuries except James Crandall of London, who
had children baptized between 1596 and 1603.

b. James Crandall, under age in 1608 (if correctly identified as
above), was living in 1621 at Westerleigh, Gloucestershire. He
married, as his first wife, Eleanor --?--, who was buried 8 June 1618 at
Westerleigh. The name of his second wife is not known. Children of
James Crandall, the first by Eleanor, the second by an unknown
second wife:38

1. John Crandall, baptized 15 February 1617/8
at Westerleigh, Glocs., presumably the Baptist
elder who settled in Rhode Island by 1643, and
who died at Newport in 1676. The chief reasons for
the identification are not only that his name was
rare and he seems to disappear from
Gloucestershire records, but that he was one of
the founders of the town of Westerly, Rhode
Island. In addition, Seventh Day Baptists were
present in Gloucester by 1620, when three of the
principal burgesses of Tewkesbury who observed
Saturday as the Sabbath were warned that they
would be removed from office if they would not
acknowledge the Fourth

Commandment.39 Some of the early Rhode Island Sabbatarians came from Gloucestershire. Stephen Mumford (c.1639- 1707), one of the organizers of the Newport church, was a member of the Natton Seventh Day Baptists at Ashchurch and

fled from Tewkesbury.40 Arnold Collins (d. 1735), a Newport merchant and leading member
of the church there, was probably the son of Arnold Collins, a Bristol grocer who went to Virginia by 1665. In addition to this evidence of certain Rhode Island Baptists coming from Gloucestershire, we should mention the tradition that John Crandall was from Monmouthshire. Monmouthshire is next to Gloucestershire, and, as noted above, William Crandall bequeathed money to the poor of "Pentry" [Penterry], Monmouthshire.41

2. Ann Crandall, baptized 30 December 1621.

c. Elizabeth Crundall.
d. Deborah Crundall.
e. Ann Crundall.
f. Margaret Crundall.
vi. Joan Crundall, under age in 1589, so probably born about 1575.


The Thornbury Crandalls (Crendalls) were another family and it is not known whether it
was related to that of Nicholas. A William Crondall or Crundale lived in St. Owen,
Gloucester, in 1551, and Stroud in 1556.42 Elizabeth Crondall, perhaps his widow, lived
in Stroud in 1570 and 1571.43

40Jackie Perry, "Natton Seventh Day Baptist Church, Ashchurch," Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society 114 (1996): 105. The brothers Lot
and John Strange, who settled in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, were apparently from Ashchurch, Lot being baptized there 3 June 1623.

41Unfortunately the parish registers of the Penterry area start at a much later time. The Gwent Record Office apparently has no records which would document Penterry in
the early 17th century, nor do any Crandalls appear as testators in the Archdeaconry of Llandaff. There are no testators in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury from
Penterry in this period.

William Crandell was buried at Thornbury 29 December 1591.44 He married, as his first
wife, in 1575, Catherine Ady. He married, as his second wife, on 27 May 1589, at
Thornbury, Glocs., Catherine Flide. Presumed children, the Thornbury register not
naming the parents of the children baptized:

i. William Crendall, bp. 22 October 1587 at Thornbury. He married, on 18 January 1607[?/8], at Cromhall, Gloucestershire, Margaret Wall.45 In 1608, he lived at Kynton and
Rangeworthy, Gloucestershire.46 Children:

a. William Crandall (Crendall), bp. 5 September 1613 at Thornbury. William Crandall "of
Thornbury" married, on 17 August 1637, at St. Peter's, Dyrham, Glocs., Jane
Cambourne. Perhaps his widow was Mary Crendall, widow, who married, on

4 Feb. 1669/70, at Oldbury upon Severn, Glocs., John Willcocks.47 There was a

John Crendall, vintner of Bristol, who died in 1695,48 and who may have been a son.
John Crendall married, on 5 Nov. 1682, at St. Augustine the Less, Bristol, Elizabeth Billingsley.

b. Joan (Johane) Crandall, bp. 17 December 1615 at Thornbury.

ii. Margery Crandall, bp. 4 July 1589, bur. 23 July 1589 at Thornbury.

iii. Thomas Crandall, bp. 21 November 1591 at Thornbury.
