  • Cited in the Blust-Reed genealogy, Genealogies of Kentucky Families (Genealogical Publishing Co, Inc, 1981), p 138:
    "John Crawford, a Scotchman, emigrated to Virginia.  He lost his life in the Indian Campaign of Bacon's Rebellion.  He was the youngest son of Earl Crawford.  He had only one son, David.  He received a land grant from Governor Berkley."
    --  Blust-Reed,

    Another genealogy from Patricia Causey provides more details on John:
    John Crawford, b 1600, Ayrshire, Scotland, d 1676 in Bacon's Rebellion
    He came to Jamestown in 1643 with his son David
    Spouse unknown.  David b 1625 in Ayrshire, Scotland
    --  Patricia Causey,

    Other genealogies add even further detail on John and his son David.  Here is information from the Valleaux Family genealogy:
    John Crawford, b 1600, Ayrshire, Scotland, d 1676 in Virginia
    Spouse unknown
    Son David b 1625 in Kilburney, Ayrshire, Scotland
    --  Valleaux Family,

    Some genealogies report John's date of death as 1670, rather than 1676.  Similarly several genealogies report the year of birth as 1606.  I have not found public records that will clarify the birth or death dates for John.

    The Salzar genealogy with this Crawford line reports the name and birth information of John Crawford's wife:
    Margaret Cunningham
    Born Abt 1597 in Ayrshire, Scotland
    married John Crawford 1600-1676
    Child David Crawford Esq 1625-1710
    --  Crawfords in Salzar Family,

    Other genealogies have more information on Margaret Cunningham, but I have had difficulty finding public record information on Margaret or John Crawford.  For more details on Margaret, see Notes for Margaret Cunningham.

    Basic information is available on their son David.

    David Crawford
    b abt 1625 in Kilburney, Ayrshire, Scotland
    d 1704; wife Unknown
    children:  Elizabeth, Judith, Angelina, David, Capt b 1662
    --  Valleau Family,
