Crowley

El clan irlandés CROWLEY o O'CROWLEY se formó a partir de una rama de los MacDermott de Moylurg, en Co.Roscommon, cuyo ascendiente epónimo se llamó Cruadhlaoch (o O'Cruaidhlaoich), quien migró a Co.Cork, al sur de Irlanda, donde progresaron y se encuentra en la actualidad la mayor parte de sus descendientes. O'Hart nos da su pedigree entre los de las familias descendientes de Heremon, agregando que Cruadhlaoch era un apodo, que significa "Fuerte Campeón", pero que su nombre era Dermod, y era tercer nieto de Murtogh, Príncipe de Moylurg, que es el Nº 107 en el pedigree de los MacDermott. En las listas de pasajeros entrados a Buenos Aires entre 1825 y 1880 encontramos seis personas de este apellido, entre los años 1858 y 1877.

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.

Origen: Irlandés. Irish names tend to vary widely in their spelling and overall form. The original Gaelic form of the name Crowley is O Cruadhlaoich. This is derived from the words cruadh, which means hard, and laoch, which means hero. First found in Roscommon where they held a family seat from very ancient times.

Variantes: Crowley, Crowly, O'Crowley, Croaley, Croawley, O'Crowly, y otros.
