Richard Crewe senior

???? - 1814


Father of Richard Crewe junior, John Frederick Crewe and Rev. Willoughby Crewe, and father-in-law of John Pusey Edwardes (all q.v.). Owner of Raymond's estate in Vere. Deceased by 1817 when Pusey Hall was registered to the heirs of Richard Crewe. He was possibly the same man as the 'Richard Crew' identified as an overseer in the 1770s in St James and as owner of the Wales estate also in St James in 1774.

  1. Will of Richard Crewe of Southampton Hampshire proved 06/08/1814. In the will he instructed his trustees to sell the Raymond's estate as quickly as possible for the benefit of his sons as co-heirs subject to £12,000 in trust to his daughter Emma with his house in Moira Place, which he ordered to be cleared of its mortgage of £1000 [?]. He left an annuity of £300 p.a. to his son Willoughby Crewe until the latter succeeded to a series of livings, including that held by the Rev. Offley Crewe.
