Are the Couch line and Crouch line the same, or two different lines, or just a spelling change??

Truly, that will not been known until you have done the research, perhaps been down a few rabbit holes.  There are plenty of volunteers willing to help when you get stuck.

They are two different lines....not that they haven't been confused or changed over time.

Crouch is an Anglo-Saxon name and derives from someone who lived by a cross.

Couch has two different origins. It is a Cornish name thought to have derived from Cornish "cough" (red) and to have been a nickname for a redheaded man.  There is also an English name Couch which probably originated as a name for a maker of beds or bedding
