Etymology:

The name Crowsley comes from the latin word "Corvus", which was given to the island by the Romans due to the large populations of ravens & crows. The crow has been a symbol for the island ever since, due to it's noticeable intelligence and mischievous demeanor. The term "Crow" refers to people from Crowsley, but it is also used sometimes in a pejorative manner, mostly by people from the main island of Britian. Ex: "You bloody Crow!!"
