Hello,
I am trying to connect my family tree back to it's English roots. I have traced
my line back from me, thru 10 generations in America, to my ancestor Hugh
Crowder. Hugh sailed to America aboard the "Bona Noua"(nova) with Capt John Huddleston. They came to America as part of the Virginia Co adventure,
they sailed from London in 1617. I believe the family to be from Goxhill, North Lincolnshire. I have found records of a Christining and a couple of marriages at the Goxhill Parish with the correct dates. The Christining was on 17 May 1606, it list's Hugh and names the father as Hugh also. The marriages, I assume, are for Hugh (the elder), they are ; Hugh marries Mary Emerson, 29 Apr 1604, and Hugh marries Marie Booth, 7 July 1605. I assume that Marie
Booth is Hugh (the younger's) mother, but have no proof. I also have a listing for Hugh being married to a Frances Gilman in London, 27 Nov 1616. I would be most thankful for any leeds that might be given, thank's in advance. Pete.

Hello Julie and Dave,
Thank you all for the open welcome that I have received. I will try the web site that you have suggested Julie, thank you. I looked at your linage Dave, I too am always happy to meet a fellow Crowder, we may well be distant cousin's, if the Hugh Crowder's from Goxhill turn out to be the correct persons that I seek. Unfortunatly you don't have your linage back further. I need to find out if one of the Hugh's from Goxhill,went to London then sailed to America. Or if the one record for the 1616 marriage in London is a different Hugh, and if so is he the one that sailed to America in 1617. However I do find that you have an ancestor named "Eliza" which was the name of the first wife of Hugh (the elder) of Goxhill. It may be a coincident or a handed down name, as families of the time might have done. I have been working with a Ms Longbone from the Lincolnshire Counsel, she has been most helpful. But I am realizing that research in the UK is not as easy as in America. So I'm sure it will be a while till I have any definite answers. In the mean time I look forward to many conversations on the subject. I have extensive documentation on the family in America if you know anyone interested. Pete

Great to hear Pete.

I have not spent a lot of time on the Crowder side of my family, though there are a few more "cousins" of mine trying to research further back. So you never know - there may be some sort of link.

Of another site of mine, for my direct family, I will be adding a CROWDER page - when I have updated this, I will let you know.

All the best,
Dave

Hello Dave,
I'll start this post with an apology for being a little short in my last post when it came to your Crowder linage. I thought of my post after it was posted, and thought it somewhat rude or pushy. I appreciate the polite way of the English foke, it is a refreshing change from the American attitude. :( I will look forward to your Crowder page, and would like to quiz your Crowder cousin's about their research. :eek: In the intrum I will try and be patient, but you know the feeling of beating your head on the perverbial wall and the inpatientace of us yank's, He He!!!!:2fun:

Pete:rolleyes:

Hello Pete

This is my first post on the forum, I have only registered this evening, while reading some of the messages i came across your posts regarding the Crowder family, I have recently discovered that my great great grandfather, Oswald Emerson Crowther Lister's grat great grandfather was John Crowder
Birth: 1745, is this one of your ancestors? I was wondering because quite a few of my Crowthers have Emerson as a middle name!

Regards

Lisa

Hi Pete

It's some time since your original post so your research may well have progressed by now.

As a Crowder born in Peterborough but now living near to Nottingham. I have traced my Crowder line back to 1750 ish in North-West Leicestershire, South East Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire but currently stuck at a Samuel Crowder who married in Nottingham in 1765 had a first child in Derby but then lived in Castle Donington.

For a number of generations they seem to have worked as Boatmen and according to the Severn Trent Navigation records carried goods sailing between between Burton upon Trent and Gainsborough in Lincolnshire (largely Coal to Gainsborough and Barley to Burton).

I know that some family members settled near Newark on Trent in the 1800s and I suspect that others may have settled elsewhere near to the River Trent.

There were/are a number of Crowders living in and around Southwell (Notts) but not seemingly related to my line.

I have also come across a number of Crowders in Lincolnshire but yet to prove any link with my family branch. Perhaps we could exchange notes.

Regards

John Crowder

Greetings,
It has been sometime since I have been on this site, my apologies. I thank all for their posts, I find them quite interesting. Unfortunately the time frame is not early enough for me to make connections. Lisa, I believe you may be close as it was a custom of the time to use the mothers maiden name as the middle name of a male child born to her. However we would have to go back a little further to make the connection, as all I know for sure is the Name of Hugh Crowder, and the date of sailing to America in 1619. So I will thank you both, John and Lisa, for sharing, but the info I need is around a century older, in the 17th century not the 18th. In time as Crowders or Crowthers we will hope to reconnect the family together, but for now history eludes us.

I would however like to invite all Crowders/Crowthers/Cruders, Etc...and their decendants to Join in on our Crowder Family Page on Facebook at; http://www.facebook.com/pages/Crowder-Family/212394892116417

Good hunting my geneological friends, and distant family, howdy from across the pond...God save the Queen, Bless America, and each one of you, peace be with you.
