Crew ~ First Generation

  The first known generation of the Crew family commences with Joseph CREW and Mary, surname unknown.

A marriage has been found of Joseph CREW (widr.) to Mary BARTLETT (wid.) on 13 July 1772 at Axbridge, Somersetshire (ref Somerset marriages, from Somerset & Dorset Family History Society in findmypast). However Axbridge is a considerable distance from Timsbury and Bath. This could be the one but many records of Somerset are not yet in the public domain.

A previous version of this website had more children of Joseph and Mary, based on work of a Somerset researcher in 1965. However as Mary's maiden name is never given, many of these have been deleted due to lack of proof that they are in the same family. Several hypothetical relations have been retained in the hope that they will be connected in future due to more records becoming available.

There were several Crew families at Timsbury at the time and all of the baptisms in Timsbury from FreeREG have been listed on page 2.

Burial of Mary Crewe, 30 Dec 1817, age 70. Buried Timsbury, Somerset at the Anglican church of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Timsbury, Somersetshire (ref National Burial Index, Somerset & Dorset Family History Society in findmypast). Other family records are at Timsbury. This means Mary was born c1747.
