Nicole Smith has an entry in RootsWeb WorldConnect for Annie Croncher and her marriage to George Vass. She does not have any children but she is the second wife of her husband who has a son Charles Vass born 1859. I believe this to be the Charles Croucher mentioned in the 1861 census. The same information is in Ancestry Public Member Trees. Wilf Pateman has an entry in in Ancestry Public Member Trees for Anne Croucher born in 1839 in Crondall. Crookham. Hampshire, parents James Croucher and Martha Turner.
