Catalog Description: Contents: v. 1. Descendants of Henry Crane of Wethersfield and Guilford, Conn., with sketch of the family in England -- v. 2. Descendants of Benjamin Crane of Wethersfield, Conn.; and John Crane of Coventry, Conn.; also of Jasper Crane of New Haven, Conn. and Newark, N.J.; and Stephen Crane of Elizabethtown, N.J. : with families of the name in New Hampshire, Maryland and Virginia.

Henry Crane (ca.1635-1711) and Benjamin Crane (ca.1630-1691), brothers (according to the author), immigrated from England to Wethersfield, Connecticut during or before 1655 (possibly Benjamin had been in Massachusetts earlier). Their father was probably John Crane (fl.1637-1642) of the "Muddy Brook" section of Boston now known as Brookline. Henry married Concurrence Meigs about 1663 and made several moves, but maintained a residence at Guilford, Conn. while sometimes living elsewhere. Benjamin married Mary Backus in 1655 and remained in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Descendants and relatives lived in New England, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and elsewhere. Vol. 1 includes Crane ancestry in England to 1066 A.D. Vol. 2 includes other Crane immigrants and their descendants and relatives in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina,
