The name Crichton originates from the the lands of Kreitton, a very old barony near Edinburgh. Recordings of the name first appear around 1128 when Thurstan de Crechtune witnessed the foundation of the Abbey of Holyrood House by David I. Thomas de Crichton, possibly Thursdan’s son is recorded on the Ragman Roll of nobles swearing to Edward I in 1296.
