CROSSON Family History

Recorded in several spellings including MacCrossan, McCrossan, Crossan, Crosan, Crosen, Croson, Crossen, Crosson and others, this is an Irish surname. It is a developed form of the pre 10th century Gaelic Mac an Chrosain, meaning 'The son of the reciter of verse'. Originally the surname may have denoted one who carried a cross in religious processions of the Christian Church. There are two distinct septs of the MacCrossan's, the most numerous being in North Ulster, and mainly in County Tyrone and County Derry.
