From SN4086 Peasant Land Market in Southern England, 1260-1350.
1347 Waltham St. Lawrence: John atte Cruche paid 66/8d (it also says 800d which implies this is correct and not 6/8d) for a messuage and virgate of villein land and 1 cottage and curtilage of purpresture in Walth'm previously held by his mother Christina atte Cruch'. Hence it is assumed that she died in 1346 and her husband died before her.
1349 Walthan St Lawrence, Berkshire: Richard atte Bury (Berry) paid 4/- for the surrender of shilling of purpresture in Walth'm previous held by his father John atte Crouch'.

Note that the last name of her youngest son differs because he was not the eldest, and had taken his name from the land he held (only the eldest son inherited the last name at this time).
