Descendants of George Crew and Elizabeth (Crew)

This Crew(e) genealogy is a preliminary organization of research into my mother's family from PEI. There are probably errors as we have just begun piecing together the information and all errors are mine. What I do know "for sure" is that my great grandfather John Kitson(Kidson?) Crewe married Laura Arnett in PEI in the early 1900s and my grandfather Charles W Crewe had at least 5 brothers and sisters

.

Please contact me at sergeant@xylogics.com if you have any additional information or corrections. I would especially like to thank Greg Hughes and Waldron Leard for providing record lookups and background material. I am also very grateful to Dave Hunter for providing such a great PEI page. I am in Boston and without any knowledge of where the rest of the Crew descendants may be, so this has been a wonderful opportunity to explore PEI and my mother's family.

1. George1 CREW, born bef. 1780. He probably married (1) Elizabeth (CREW),

deceased bef. 1843. They were both from England and probably came to PEI about 1822.

Notes for George Crew, Royal Gazette: Crew, Elizabeth, RG 16 Apr 1839, p. 2, and 21 May 1839 , p. 1, aged and infirm person,Crapaud; George Crew, Royal Gazette 7 Jan 1839, Grist Mill Owner; and again George on 7 Jan 1840, p. 4,Miller; 12/24/1839, p 3, Grist Mill owner, Crapaud; George Crew,Royal Gazette 1/1840, p 4, Miller;

1841 census -Lot 29, p. 1, as a Miller and Farmer, Methodist, 3 and 1 born in PEI and 2 in England, 1 f under 16, 1 m, 16-45 and 1 m over 60, probably a widower; listed in sequence with Joseph, Benjamin and Daniel so probably oncontiguous pieces of land; probably Joseph, George, Benjamin and Daniel are sons, but the girl under 16 with two men and no mother - maybe the father George and the son George, but must be a child by the son George? I put Eliza here, but there may be another Hannah than Joseph's daughter and Walden Leard believes that Emma may be George's daughter not Joseph's?

8/31/1843 marriage JP WN Irving, witnesses Edward Duffy, Joseph Best - must be son George; 1860 Lot 29 Lake maps show mill with saw and grist parts. 1880 Meacham's Atlas Lot 29 shows George and Joseph, but 1928 map only shows Leards.

Notes for Laura Arnett Laura Crewe died over Labor Day weekend in 1971 (early Sept) at the age of 88. She lived in Hopkinton and Grafton, Massachusetts with my grandparents from some time in the 1940s or 1950s until my grandmother died in 1961. Then Laura returned to PEI, and a nursing home which I believe was in Charlottetown. I visited her there in 1970. I do know she went back to Canada because of the benefits for the elderly so I assume that she was still a Canadian citizen. PEI is where she died. She left my brother John Kitson Varnum $400 in her will - he was named after her husband, probably because he was the first male great grandchild. There may have been no male Crewe grandchildren.
