Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places called Crookham in Berkshire and Northumberland, or from Church Crookham in Hampshire. The one in Northumberland is named with a dative plural form of Old Scandinavian krókr ‘crook’, ‘bend’, while those in Berkshire and Hampshire are probably named with an Old English word croc ‘crook’, ‘bend’ + hām ‘homestead’.
