|Death: ||Sep. 18, 1675|
Lived in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony. A colonial soldier, serving under Captain Lothrop, who died in the Battle of Bloody Brook. The soldiers were guarding a haul of grain that teamsters were moving to storage.
Jane is listed as wife, relict, and administratrix in Samuel Crumpton's probate record. She later married Richard More, who had been, as a child of perhaps nine years, a passenger aboard the Mayflower.
Samuel Crumpton may have been an immigrant, given his widow's testimony, "there being noe relations of her husbands known of in this country." He evidently worked as a saddler. His inventoried estate is relatively large by the modest standards of those who died at Bloody Brook.
