Like Crystal Crawley, I'm also new to this website. When I saw my/our last name here I was tempted to take up the opportunity and search for my ancestors too!! I'm residing here at a remote island in the Pacific Island name "Samoa" which tourists called Paradise, but I call "Home" *smiles*
My great great grandfather's name was Alfred Crawley! He was believed to be originated from England. He was a sailor or rather a captain, and his ship was being shipwrecked around the far east shores of Samoa. In those days, Samoa was known for their wild warriors, yet, Alfred Crawley was being saved by the daughter of the highest paramount chief (Fuataga) of that village name, Lalomanu Aleipata. The daughter's name "Moauli" tended to Alfreds needs as he was very sick when found, and later, Alfred was treated by the islanders with respect as a high chief. He was later married to Moauli and from there, the beginning of the "Crawley" family tree here in Samoa started!!
Like all you 'Crawley' decendants, I would also like to trace my great great grandfathers roots so as to know my ancestors.
With due respect to ALL you "Crawleys" out there!
