Our British Ancestors & Their Immigration to America

(last updated 5/26/12)

This lists all Cruits in chronological order that I found in Britain, on immigration records, and on U.S. naturalization records to about 1900.  Since so many Cruits were in Devon and Cornwall, England, toward the bottom of this page I also list those Cruits in separate Devon and Cornwall sections.  BUT, I haven't updated the Devon and Cornwall sections from the main list lately, so they are not as complete as the main list.

l820, Qtr ending Sep 30.  Brig Rising Sun arrived Philadelphia. Nationality of all is Gr. Britain and last permanent residence England. They all intended to become residents of U.S.  Index listed John Curtis as Cruit, but I saw the record and it is clearly Curtis and they are written in this following order and in the same handwriting, so seems no chance that the writer would have spelled Cruit correctly for George and Susan but not John. I searched LDS IGI for John Curtis from around Paignton, Devon or nearby area, none found.
Gilbert Cruit, 50, farmer; (Age is within 3 years of Gilbert Distin Cruit Sr.)
John Curtis, 33, gardner
Susan Cruit 20, dressmaker.
This Gilbert has to be Gilbert Distin Cruit Sr. cause Jr. was still having kids in Devon regularly after 1820 & had another kid apprenticed to him in 1825 Devon. Susan's age is correct for Gilbert to be her father. She appears to die a year later in Chambersburg, PA where she was working as a dressmaker. See her obit.
