Christening of John Croucher in the IGI on 11 April 1779 at Saint Saviour, Southwark, Surrey, but no parents. However George and Martha were christened there a few years later, parents Thomas and Martha.

There is an entry in the IGI for the birth and christening of Ann Margaret Croucher in 1812 at Christ Church, Southwark, London, parents John and Sarah Croucher, but no other children.

There are three entries in the IGI for the christening of Amelia Jane Croucher, John Henry Croucher and Robert William Croucher in 1829 and 1835 at Saint John the Evangelist, Lambeth, Surrey, parents John and Maria Croucher. The last two were about six months apart so I assume John Henry was born earlier.

In the 1841 census as John Croucher aged 60 (rounded down to a multiple of 5), not born in Surrey, independent, and living with Maria (wife?), John, Richard and Robert (sons?) and Amelia, Ann, and Elizebeth (daughters?) in John Street, Christchurch, Southwark, Surrey

Death of John Henry Croucher in FreeBMD in July-September 1850 in St Saviour Southwark (4 344).

Death of Maria Croucher in FreeBMD in April-June 1872 aged 77 in St Saviour (1d 16). Possibly born in Shoreditch, Middlesex from the 1881 census.

Jane Bevan has an entry in Ancestry Public Member Trees for John Henry Croucher born in Southwark, London in 1781, his marriage to Maria, his six children (not including Maria) and his death in 1850 in Southwark. Note Maria is in the 1851 census but not the 1841 census.
