Notes for Capt. James (Crewes) Cruse:

The following paper is recorded in the office of the general court, in a book labelled "Deeds and Wills" from 1670 to 1677, pa. 618. This paper bears date four days after the meeting of the assembly held under Bacon 's influence, which was on the 5th of June 1676, (see ante pa. 341), and was probably intended to procure for Bacon the act of indemnity which was passed at that session, as well as the commission of general, which Sir William Berkeley reluctantly signed. See Burk's Hist. Virg. vol. 2, pa. 169.]
Bacon 's acknowledgm't. I Nath. Bacon , jr. of Henrico county, in Virginia, do hereby most readily, freely and most humbly acknowledge that I am and have been guilty of diverse late unlawful , mutinous and rebellious practices, contrary to my duty to his most sacred majesty's governor and this country, by beating up of drums, raising of men in arms , marching with them into several parts of this his most sacred majesty's colony, not only without order and commission, but contrary to the express orders and commands of the Rt. Hon. Sir William Berkeley , Knt. his majesty's most worthy governor , and captain general of Virginia. And I do further acknowledge that the said honorable governor has been very favorable to me, by his several reiterated gracious offers of pardon, thereby to reclaim me from the persecution of those my unjust proceedings (whose noble and generous mercy and clemency I can never sufficiently acknowledge) and for the re-settlement of this whole country in peace and quietness . And I do hereby, upon my knees, most humbly beg of Almighty God and of his majesty's said governor , Bacon 's opposition.that upon this my most hearty and unfeigned acknowledgement of my said miscarriages and unwarrantable practices, he will please to grant me his gracious pardon and indemnity , humbly, desiring also the honorable council of state by whose goodness I am also much obliged , and the honorable burgesses of the present grand assembly to interceed and mediate with his honor to grant me such pardon. And I do hereby, promise, upon the word and faith of a christian and of a gentleman, that upon such pardon granted me, as I shall ever acknowledge so great a favor , so I will always bear true faith and allegiance to his most sacred majesty , and demean myself dutifully, faithfully and peaceably to the government and the laws of this country; and am most ready and willing to enter into bond of two thousand pound stirling, and for security thereof bind my whole estate, in Virginia, to the country for my good and quiet behaviour, for one whole year from this date, and do promise and oblige myself to continue my said duty and allegiance at all times afterwards. In testimony of this my free and hearty recognition, I have hereunto subscribed my name, this 9th day of June, 1676.

Nath. Bacon .

James Crewes being brought before the court for treason and rebellion against his most sacred majestie, and pleading nothing in his defence, and the court being very sencible that the said Crewes was a most notorious actor, aydor and assistor in the rebellion; therefore the court are unanimously of opinion, and doe adjudge him guilty of the accusation: Sentence of death therefore past upon him to returne to the prison from whence he came, and from thence (on Friday next) to be carryed to the gallowes, there to be hanged by the neck untill he be dead. Jas. Crewes.
The same accusation ( of James Crewes) against Wm. Cookson; and sentence of death accordingly past upon him. Wm. Cookson.
The same accusation ( of James Crewes) against John Digby; and sentence of death accordingly past upon him. John Digby.
The same accusation ( of James Crewes) against Wm. Rookings; and sentence of death accordingly past upon him. Wm. Rookings.
The same accusation ( of James Crewes) against Wm. West; and sentence of death accordingly past upon him. Wm. West.
The same accusation ( of James Crewes) against Jno. Turner; and sentence of death accordingly past upon him. Jno. Turner.
Henry West being found guilty of treason and rebellion against his majestie; but for that he hath not been so notorious as the rest, the court have thought Henry West banished.

James Crewes Will

p.139, 23 July 1676, James Crewes will. I give unto my man Tero his freedome three years after my decease, and at the expiration of the said time I give unto him one cow, one sow, if I have any left and as much land as he shall tend for him & another during life.

July 23, 1676. In the name of God, Amen, I James Crewes of Turkey Island, planter in Henrico County, being of sound and perfect memory, praised be God, do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following:
First, and principle, I commit my soul into the hands of Almighty God, my Creator, hoping and also believing through the merits, death, and passion of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer, to have and obtain free, full, remission and pardon for all my sins.
As touching any and all my worldly estate, either here in Virginia, in England, or elsewhere due either by bill, bond, or arrest:
Imprimis Item. I give and bequeath unto Mary Carter, daughter to Giles Carter, ten thousand pounds of tobacco and cask, one feather bed, two blankets, and one good rug, this to be paid in three years after my decease, the interest hereof to be towards her clothing.
Item. I give unto Susan Carter ten thousand pounds of tobacco and cask, one feather bed, two blankets, and one rug, to be paid as abovesaid.
Item. I give unto my man Tero his freedom, he serving three years after my decease and at the expiration of the said time, I give unto him one cow, one sow, if I have any left, and as much land as he shall tend for him and another during life. [From the estate inventory, we discover that Tero was Native American. The estate inventory also includes an unnamed Native American boy, an African American man named Mingo, an African American woman named Keate, and an English maid servant named Mary Herringer--with 2 years remaining on her indenture.]
Item. I give unto Hannah Carter, wife to Giles Carter, my Negro maid Keate forever and her increase.
Item. I give unto Daniel Price my best suit and coat and hat. [Daniel Price was a stepnephew of Margaret Llewellyn. So, if Margaret married James Crewes, her relationship to Daniel Price would explain why James Crewes named Daniel Price in his will.]
Item. I give unto Giles Carter what he owes me by bill or book; and further the plantation, which I have formerly left him, that he, his wife Hannah, and children shall have it during both their lives rent free, only paying one grain of Indian corn when demanded [Note that James Crewes willed this plantation to both Giles and Hannah. Hannahís inclusion as joint recipient of the land, considered in the context of an era of limited female property rights, supports the conclusion that Hannah was the daughter of James Crewes.]; and further it is my will that what I have given to the said Giles Carterís children that if either of them should die that it should come to the rest of his children; it is further my will that when the said Hannah Carter, wife to the said Giles Carter shall die, then the said Negro wench return to Theodorick Carter, her son, and if she [Keate] hath any children they to be at her [Hannah] disposing who she will give them to.
Item. I make my loving cousin Mr. Mathew Crewes my sole executor of all my lands here in Virginia or elsewhere and all the rest of my estate to him or his heirs forever, my just debts being paid.
Item. It is my desire that my loving friend Giles Carter should live here in my said house and command my servants and make crops or any other thing as shall be convenient and necessary for the said plantation, and so to give an account yearly if my said executor shall order.
James Crewes. Test: Thomas Forehand and Dermot Enroughty.
Probated in Henrico County Court to be the last will and testament of Capt. James Crewes (deceased) by the witnesses to the same as by their depositions taken the 10th of December 1677 (in case of mortality) will appear certified and entered amongst the records of the said court this 2nd day of August 1680. H. Davis, Esq. (Henrico County, Virginia, Records, p. 139) [When James Crewes wrote his will, he was a leader in Bacon's Rebellion and must have known his life was in danger. Although he did not state his relationship with the Carters, he provided for them in a manner traditionally reserved for children and grandchildren. This will is one piece of the whole body of evidence, which points to an unconventional father-daughter relationship between James Crewes and Hannah.]
