Joseph Croot was born in Moretonhamptead, Devon, England in 1837, the son of Robert Croot and Susanna Pethybridge. He immigrated to the US in 1857, probably with his brother Robert Croot/William Smith. He was in Chester, Morris County, NJ by the time of the 1860 Census. He remained there for the rest of his life and was listed as a farmer in the 1870, 1880, and 1900 Censuses.

His family is referred to as the "Chester Croots" by descendants of his brothers.
All but one of his siblings immigrated to the US settling variously in New York City, New Jersey, and Iowa.

He is in the 1841 UK Census with his parents in Howton, Moretonhampstead and in the 1851 Census as a worker at Northmore Farm, Moretonhamptead. It of note that one of the other workers was George Walling but the relationship is not clear.
