Cramer Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of German and Anglo-Saxon, pre 7th century origins. It has been widely throughout Europe in many different spellings including Cramer, Kramer, Kremer, Gramer, Graemer, Grammer, etc. It originates from an ancient word "cram" meaning cream, which has Roman (Latin) antecedents, and is occupational for either a maker or seller of dairy products, or It describes the keeper of a medieval trading post, in the modern parlance - a shop-keeper, or specifically a grocer. The surname is also recorded both in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and as there does not appear to be any Gaelic equivalent word, here again the name probably derives from the same Germanic source...
