Creavin Family Crest / Creavin Coat of Arms

CREAVIN was a locational name 'of Craven' a district in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surnames has for many centuries been very strongly represented in Yorkshire.Families acquired a place name as a surname under three different sets of circumstances. Either the man lived or worked in, on or near some topographic formation or landscape feature, either natural or artificial or he formerly lived in a village, town or city and acquired the reputation of being from that place. Finally he owned or was lord of the village or manor designated. In the overwhelming majority of cases it is impossible to say whether a remote ancestor owned the manor or had merely once lived in that place. However, it is safe to say that in most cases a manor or village name merely identifies the place where the original bearer of the name formerly resided. Early records of the name mention Paulinus de Cravene, during the reign of Edward I (1272-1307). Agnes de Craven was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Ezekyell Craven married Mary Browne at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in 1669. William, Earl of Craven (1606-97) was an English soldier, he was the son of a lord mayor of London. He served in the low countries on behalf of Elizabeth of Bohemia, daughter of James VI and I and was taken prisoner with her son, Prince Rupert, purchasing his liberty in 1639 and subsequently attaching himself to the exiled queens court at The Hauge. A man of great wealth, he assisted Charles I financially, and his estates were sequestered in 1652 but returned at the Restoration. He was made an earl by Charles II in 1664 and a number of offices were bestowed upon him, including that of lord-lieutenant of Middlesex, but he retained his attachment to Elizabeth of Bohemia.
