Alice daughter of John Cruche paid 13/4d for messuage and virgate of Tounsend (also called Townsend, and now known as Greencross) from her father John Cruche in 1312. Taken from the "Manorial Fines" in Churt: A Medieval Landscape by Phillip Brookes 2000. It is assumed that John Cruche and John de Cruce are the same person. The land had been occupied by her mother since 1308, but presumeably was still in her father's name. In 1341 the land passed to Joan so Alice is assumed to have died without children.

Her father paid 6p for her marriage in 1293 from an entry in the Winchester Pipe Rolls from SN4086 Peasant Land Market in Southern England, 1260-1350. Also in 1312/3 Alice atte Cruche, daughter of John, paid 13/4d for a property (messuage and virgate) in Churt previously owned by her father.
