Families covered: Crewe of Crewe Hall, Crewe (Crew) of Stene, Crewe of Utkinton

This page was first launched as 'CreweXX' when it was based on BE1883. It was renamed Crewe01 on 27.09.08 when we revised the page, partly to facilitate a separation of the line of Crewe Hall (when we uploaded a page on the Offley family) and partly to introduce the first generation shown here which came from Commoners (vol III, Wright of Mottram St. Andrew). It was then renamed Crewe02 when we used Ormerod (Cheshire) and set up a new Crewe01 for the earlier generations.
