Clan Crozier. Clan Crozier (crosier, croser, etc.) is one of the border reiving clans of Scotland, along with the Armstrongs, Elliots, and Nixons. Some sources cite the surname as a sept of the Armstrong clan, but the Scottish parliament in 1587 identified the Croziers as a middle march clan.

Clan Crozier

The Croziers came from over from Normandy in 1066 with William the Conqueror. Through the years, some moved northward to the southern areas of Scotland where they became established as a Border Clan. According to Scots Kith and Kin, Clan Crozier was in Liddesdale in the 14th Century. It is a sept of Clan Armstrong.


Clan Armstrong – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Clan Armstrong is a Lowland Scottish clan of the Scottish Borders. The clan does not currently have a chief recognised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms……

sept noun;

 a clan, originally one in Ireland.

So, sept is in reference to an Irish Clan.



In Scotland;

A Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (up to 1700)

 Cite this entry  Sept, adj.(L. septimus seventh.)

In Latin based language sept refers to seven, as in September had been the seventh month.

Tried twice to list the Crozier as an Clan Armstrong sept on English Wikipedia, but it was accepted as an ally. Clan Crozier, is not being recognized as an ally on Clan Eliott English Wikipedia.

Explanation given of the once Clan Crozier on English Wikipedia;

An armigerous clan is a clan without a chief, and a sept is
a clan which follows a chief. So an armigerous clan like
Clan Armstrong, since it does not have a chief, does not
have septs. Clan Crozier, not having a chief by the
Lord Lyon King of Arms, is an armigerous clan allied with the
far more populous Clan Armstrong.

Brought on by not being able to list Clan Crozier as a sept, but as an ally on English Wikipedia. With sept being Irish and not Scottish for clan, and the Crozier a strong name in Ulster, Ireland, may be the reason Crozier think they are a sept of the Scottish recognized  unvanquished Clan Armstrong.

Both that given by New Zealand and known for wool especially the given tartan, to standardize the colourisation for CLAN CROZIER, with high hue border Scottish blue, and the green of the Armstrong and Ireland.

A Clan must have a Tartan of standard colours (colors) to be first recognized as A Clan. New Zealand it  is felt has given the best representation of these colours.


For the question of sept or ally? It is felt if Nova Scotia can convince Clan Armstrong that Clan Crozier is a sept and not an ally, then Clan Crozier can be a sept of Clan Armstrong. If the Clan Armstrong considers Clan Crozier an ally then they are an ally of Clan Armstrong.
