*there was an John W. Crow age 42 born in Canterbury, Kent in the 1901 census listed at 35 Henry Street, in Lambeth, London. He was married to Lucy J. from Canterbury, and he was a Compositor Printer. I wonder if he is any relation to the above Crow family. (living at 9 St. John's Place in Canterbury in 1881). His parent's were Pilcher and Ann Crow of Mill Lane (1871), his father was a Plane Maker.

He was succeeded by his son-in-law, Masters, from whom the business passed to Ashenden and then to Hal Drury, who published among other things the Rev. M. E. Walcott's Memorials of Canterbury in 1868. Edward CROW, his former assistant, next purchased the business, which is now in the hands of his son.
