CHRISTOPHER CROWE of EAST BILNEY, NORFOLK, ENGLAND

 

Son of Mr Crowe? and possibly a Miss Dalton?

Brother of: not known.

Christopher was possibly the father or grandfather of Robert Crow 1687 - 1725 of Swaffham, Norfolk (1687-1725) of Swaffham, Norfolk.

 


We know about Christopher Crowe from the following:

1. A few documents handed down in the Heath-Caldwell family.  One of these letters bears his red letter seal showing his family coat of arms.

2. A few letter seals handed down in the Heath-Caldwell family.

3. A bible dated 1660 with a coat of arms showing Crowe on the left (male) and probably Dalton on the right (female).


Some old documents passed down in the Heath-Caldwell family read as follows:
