The Crispin Family Organization

The mission of the Crispin Family Organization is to study and document the history and genealogy associated with the Crispin name.

There are approximately 2000 individuals living in the US who bear the Crispin name, 600-700 households. The first Crispin came from England to North America in 1690. Records of the Crispin name apparently go back to the Battle of Hasting; and of course there is a St Crispin, the patron saint of shoemakers, that most people only know of through the famous "Saint Crispin's Day" speech in Shakespeare's play "Henry V".
