i live in the highlands of scotland and am a direct descendent of the original craytons we were from the borders of scotland and we were border reivers(raiders)we stole cattle and what ever we could lay our hands on in 1603 we were banished to ireland as one of the original protestants by james the 6th of scotland in1605 but our family trait of taking other pepoles property got a lot of craytons sent by prison ships all over the world this is onr of the reasons why most craytons can not trace thier ancestors.
