CRUISE/CRUYS is a Norman surname that first appeared in Ireland around the time of the Anglo-Norman invasion in 1169. The family were once powerful nobles with lands in County Meath and Dublin. The surname is still found at the greatest concentration in Dublin today. The related surname CRUWYS can be traced back to the small parish of Cruwys Morchard in North Devon in the twelfth century. The family have been Lords of the Manor continuously from the 1200s to the present day. Debbie shows how Y-DNA testing can be used to explore whether or not different variant spellings are related and how it can fill in the gaps where the paper records have not survived.
