Randle Crewe was actually baptised Randulph, as was his father and grandfather, the Reverend Randulph Crewe.  They had previously been quite a well to do family, seems they had fallen on hard times along the way.

Randulph was 19 when indicted and 20 on arrival.  He could read and write imperfectly and was single.

1845: married Agnes Bonner, 17 born Perthshire and arrived per Plantar at the Church of England, Cobbity, Narellan.  They had 1 child and Agnes must have died although can find no record.
