The surname Crumplere and other variations of the name appear in Dorset, mainly Almer , around the late 1400’s, Early 1500’s. The late 1500’s sees the name spelt without the ‘e’ on the end. Today Almer is a very small village consisting of a few houses, a farm and a small 12th century church (St Mary's) which is still in use. In the early 1600’s the Crumpler’s branch out to the surrounding areas of Almer such as Lytchitt Matravers, Lytchitt Minster, Winterborne Zelstone, Mordon, Wareham, Poole and other areas. There is also a member of the Crumpler family, William Crumpler, who moved to the Isle of Wight County in Virginia, USA in the late 1600’s, early 1700’s. This branch of the family eventually spread out to North Carolina, Alabama and other states. Today there are probably more Crumpler’s in America than England.
