Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Cranmer Green in Walsham le Willows (Suffolk), and perhaps also from other places similarly named, such as Cranmer Hall in Sculthorpe (Norfolk), Cranmore in Shalfleet (Isle of Wight), Cranmer Bottom in Selborne and Cranmore in Aldershot (both Hampshire), and East and West Cranmore (Somerset), all named from Old English cran ‘crane’ + mere ‘lake, pool’ or mōr ‘moor, marshy ground’. See also Cranmore , with which there may have been some confusion.
