      JASPER CRANE, FOUNDER OF AN IMPORTANT FAMILY
      Jasper Crane, the first of his name so far as we know to set foot in the new world, was born probably about 1605, somewhere near Bradley Plain, Hampshire, England, died in Newark, New Jersey, in 1681. His aunt was Margaret Crane who married Samuel Huntington, whose child, Jasper's cousin, Margaret Huntington, married, May 2, 1592, John, son of Edward and Margaret (Wilson) Ogden, and whose daughter, Elizabeth Huntington, Margaret's sister, married Richard Ogden, the brother of John Ogden, who married Margaret, and the father of John Ogden, the emigrant to Southampton and Elizabethtown. Jasper Crane's own daughter, Hannah, married Thomas, son of Margaret and Simon Huntington, a brother of Samuel and Margaret (Crane) Huntington.
      June 4, 1639, Jasper Crane, who was one of the original settlers of the New Haven Colony, was present at the meeting held at Mr. Newman's barn, and signed the first agreement of all the free planters. He took the oath of fidelity at the organization of the government, together with Campfield, Pennington, Governor Eaton, and others; and in 1644 he was "freed from watching and trayning in his own person because of his weakness, but to find some one for his turn." With Robert Treat he was a member of the general court, and for many years he was a magistrate. In 1651 he was interested in a bog ore furnace at East Haven; and in 1652 he removed to Branford, where he was elected a magistrate in 1658, having held the office of deputy for some years previous to that date.
      A tradition with regard to Jasper is that he came to Massachusetts Bay in the ship "Arabella," with Governor Winthrop.
      from "ROCKAWAY RECORDS OF MORRIS CO., NJ" by Joseph Percy Crayon 1902
      Gen. (maybe gentleman?) Josiah Crane, whose son Jasper emigrated with his family from London to America at an early date, and was one of the founders of Newark, NJ, in 1666, was related to William Crane, who married, Margaret, daughter and co-heir of Sir Andrew Butler, Knight. There were several branches of the Crane family, the Cheshire and Chilton branches, became most noted and numerous, who settled in the several counties of England, and who were originally Franks, freemen, and related to, and holding high positions under the long line of Pharamond Kings. The motto of the Cheshire branch was Qui pascet corvus non oblivis citus grus (He that feeds the crows will not forget the Crane.)
      The home lot that fell to Jasper Crane at Newark was directly north of the Essex county court house, and is now the site of St. Paul's Episcopal church. The meeting house was nearby and surrounded by a palisade, and in the cupola a guard of settlers kept watch for hostile Indians, while the worship was in progress.
      They were on the 1670 Newark census:
