Sorry for the typo. Dropped an "l". :-[

curmudgeonly from curmudgeon+ly

The word is attested from the late 1500s in the forms /curmudgeon/ and 
/curmudgen/, and during the 17th century in numerous spelling variants, 
including /cormogeon, cormogion, cormoggian, cormudgeon, curmudgion, 
curmuggion, curmudgin, curr-mudgin, curre-megient/.

Don't think the US existed in the late 1500s...
