CREAVEN Family HistoryMany Irish and English names are inextricably inter-mixed to the point where the origin is from several sources. In this case, "Creavan" or "Cravane" can be derived from the English locational surname "Craven", but is more likely to be an Anglicized form of "O'Crabhain", from Co. Galway, or "MacCrabhain", from Louth-Monaghan. Oddly enough, both the Irish and the English names mean the same thing, and refer to the source or the branch (of a river), the origination in both cases being based upon the Ancient British "crobh", or possibly "crif", although the latter means "place of garlic"! The early surname recordings are mainly as "Craven"; for instance, Margaret Craven, born in Antrim, on July 1st 1637.
