John atte Crouche
From SN4086 Peasant Land Market in Southern England, 1260-1350:
1309 Twyford, Hampshire: Henry atte Crouche paid 20/- for the inheritance of a messuage and virgate from his father John atte Crouch'.
1315 Twyford, Hampshire: Henry atte Crouche was a neighbour in the exchange of land in the furlong which lies between the king's highway leading from the tenement of Henry to Haraldesdell' and a certain ditch extending to Walter's (Wodelok') enclosure by surrender of William (atte Wode) in exchange for two and a half acres beside la Portweye and the payment of 6d.
Messuage - a dwelling house and legal rights such as access to commons etc.
Virgate - the Farnham Manor virgate was about 32 modern acres - see Medieval Farnham by Father (Etienne) Robo 1935. I am not sure of the size in Hampshire, but is is a quarter of a hide.
