Welcome.

I have added 15 generations of the Cruwys family to my family history pages. They range from Tudor times  to 1175. Thomas Cruwys fought for the losing Lancastrian side at the Battle of Towton in 1461. It was the bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil.

I am also a keen family historian. I am researching my own family history, mostly in Devon and Kent, and my husband Jack Priestley’s ancestors, mainly in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Some lines go back more than 30 generations, from paupers to lords of the manor. I even know the village in Normandy one of my ancestors came from.
