Per 'The Peerage of Scotland' compiled by George Crawford: "Dominus Galfridus de Crafurd is the firft I have found using this Sirname in the Time of King Malcolm IV and King William (Chartulary of the Abbacy of Arbroth in the Lawyers Library, M.S.) who is frequently witneffing the pious Deeds of this laft Prince to the Religious of Arbroath, and feems to have had fome Relation to the Court under that good King."

John, stepson of Baldwin de Biggar (ancestor of the Earls o f Wigton), possessed c1153 the northern part of the territo rial Barony of Crawford, later called Crawfordjohn, and too k the surname Craufurd. [Burke's Peerage]

Note: Burke's would have John born a little earlier than I , but the later birth date was required to fit him into th e ancestry portrayed on several Crawford family websites . See notes under Thor Sweynsson.
