    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Croichlow in Bury (Lancashire), recorded in the surname de Cruchelowe in 1324 and Croichelay in 1563. The name is perhaps also derived from Crouchley Farm in Lymm (Cheshire), though this name is of uncertain age; or from an unidentified place in southern England whose name has a similar origin (from the British Celtic crouco- ‘hill, barrow’ in an English guise + Old English hlāw, hlǣw ‘hill, barrow’). The original -low has sometimes been replaced with -ley (compare Critchley ).
