There is no local record for it, so a General Court deed may have been involved, and Ambrose must have sold his own inheritance also to Wise.5

Birth*circa 1665Robert was born circa 1665 at England.1 
Anecdote*2 September 1685 Robert Crowdson was almost certainly the first Crowson to immigrate to America, having sailed from Nottingham England before 1685. At the court before 2 Sep 1685 in Accomack County, the suit of Robert Croudson against Hance Bettnor had been referred to this court; it appeared that Croudson had, for a consideration, agreed to serve Bettnor one year from 20 Jan 1684/85. Though Bettnor sold Croudson to John Lawes, he was to pay Croudson's wages. Since Bettnor was "a person of no settled residence," Croudson petitioned for security for the payment of the rest of his wages at the expiration of his time. Considering the request reasonable, the court ordered that Bettnor give security for the payment and delivery of two shirts, one kersey suit, one hat, a pair of stockings and three years' taxes along with the costs of the suit.2,1 
Headright*18 March 1690Robert was named as a headright on 18 March 1690 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Thomas Welburne was granted 2,450 acres of land in Accomack County as compensation for transporting 49 persons into the colony, including Robert Crowson..1,3 
Marriage*circa 1692He married (-----) (-----) circa 1692. 
Death*before 1702Robert died before 1702 at Accomack Co, VA. He probably died by 1702 when his son William was apprenticed to John Evins and Thomas was apprenticed to Sarah Coe, widow of Timothy Coe, who was a Quaker..1
