"CRUDEN, CRUDDEN, CROWDEN. From Cruden in the district of Buchan. Marion of Croudane made complaint to the town council of Aberdeen in 1441 (CRA., p. 10), and Thomas Croudane was admitted a burgess of the same town in 1445 (NSCM., i, p. 9). Alexander Cruden (1701-1770) was author of Concordance of the Old and New Testaments. The form Crowden is current in Caithness.

Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Cruden ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!
