If you call up "Little Arowry" on "old maps", the modern map initially displayed shows "Cran y Mor" near Croxton pool.
"Cran y Mor" doesn't seem to be recorded on old maps.

Think "Cran y Mor" might be your "Cronimos"

Looks very likely!

 :-X  I only looked at the oldmaps  -  :-X



Living Little Arowery in 1891 RG12/2120/44/14

Brother Joseph was b. Little Arowry, 1879  and in 1881, they're living at Little Arowry.

Added - nothing in  the vicinity of Little Arowry on 3 old-maps maps that I've looked at

I'm just reading an 1870s book about Hanmer and it mentions 'a grant... of waste lands near 'Cronemoss', now called Cronymoor, in Hanmer', which sounds very much like it is your place and probably the Cron y Mor already mentioned. You might find the book interesting:
