Origins of surname
This name is of Norse origin, and is a locational name from any of the various places in Northern England and Southern Scotland that get their names from the Old Norse kross = 'cross' (usually a stone cross set up by the roadside or near a settlement), and byr = 'enclosure, settlement'.
The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism record of Catherine daughter of William Crosby and Susanne Mignocq in St Helier in 1787
