LBS has tentatively identified Crawle as the estate of John Gregory which he said he had just leased for 15 years to James Watson when he made his will in 1763. The estate appears to have reverted to his grand-daughter Mary Morant c. 1778, which would fit with this identification. However, the Accounts Produce and David Hancock both show Sir Alexander Grant as owner of Crawle, although Hancock shows the estate as being in St Catherine and this might be a separate estate. Sir Alexander Grant was a trustee under the will of James Watson, suggesting also the possibility of confusion over Grant's role on Crawle in St Thomas-in-the-Vale.
