Cropper Name Meaning

English (chiefly Lancashire): occupational name for a picker of fruit or vegetables or a reaper of cereal crops, from an agent derivative of Middle English cropt(en) ‘to pick’. The word was used also to denote the polling of cattle and the name may therefore have been given to someone who did this.
