CREAMER Family History

This interesting surname derives from two possible origins. Firstly it may be an English occupational name for a seller of dairy products, from the Old French and Medieval English "creme", cream from the late Latin "crama". The name is also found in Scotland and Northern Ireland where it is believed to be a cognative of "kramer", an occupational name for a shopkeeper pedlar from the Germanic word "kramer", shopkeeper, itself a derivative of the Old High German word "cram", trading post. In the "old statistical account (1792) of the parish of Kirkden in Angus, "Creamers" are described as "persons who go through the parish and neighbourhood and buy butter, hens, eggs etc., mostly for the Dundee market".
