Jasper Crane (Immigrant from England to America)

Jasper Crane was born prior to 1637 in England, which is the date he sailed to the Americas. ( see : for the pilgrim ship passenger list. He was said to be a surveyor and helped lay out the town of Newhaven Connecticut. ( He was one of the magistrates of the town along with Robert Treat, the father of Jasper‘s daughter- in- law ( Mary Treat Crane). There is extensive history written about him, but not necessarily accurate. I am just going to post the family information which I have from My great grandfather, Herbert D. Crane. He  exchanged information with Ellery Bicknel Crane ( I actually have the notes sent from Ellery) . He also worked it out with his Cousin Ella Gould and his sister Ida May Crane Blauvelt. There is also a photo copy of local West Caldwell written history by Herbert‘s Aunt , Julia Crane Potwin. ( I got the copies from my grandmother’s cousin, George W. Hedden, son of Herbert‘s  other sister Julia.). Jasper is said to be the son of a Josiah Crane of England, I do not have solid proof of that, either.

Jasper died in 1681.

He married Alice. Her name is not certain , I have not seen solid proof of her name. Many think it is “Leave“.  They had the following children:

1. John Crane, b.1635, d. 1694.

2. Hannah Crane, b. 1639, d.?

Married Thomas Huntington, son of Simon Huntington.

3. Deliverence ( Delivered) Crane , b. 1642, d. ?

4. Mary Crane, b. 1645, d.1671.

5. Micah Crane, b.1647, d. 1666.

6. Azariah Crane, b. 1649, d.1649.

7. Jasper Crane, Jr., b.1650,d. 1712.

He married Joanna Swaine.

this is a good written account of Jasper Crane:

Find a grave on Alice Leave, not sure of the accuracy as they only list two children for Jasper and Alice. But this could be a good place to check on her family.
