    Notes 
    • Richard and his wife Sarah with 3 children (William, Caroline and Benjamin) sailed from Plymouth, England on 29 Oct 1839 aboard the JAVA arriving at Port Adelaide South Australia on 6 Feb 1840. The colony of SA was in its very early days first settled about 1834. Their eldest son Richard Stapleton Crabb remained in Cornwall and emigrated to Adelaide in 1850 on the ASIA.

      Before emigrating to South Australia Richard had spent approx 10 years in Mexico as a miner. His wife and two children Richard and William had remained in England. On arrival in South Australia, the family lived in Adelaide for about 4 years during which time daughter Elizabeth was born. She died soon after. They then moved to Angaston, which at that time had very few dwellings and life would have been hard. Richard was apparently quite eccentric by the time they moved to Angaston and was known as "The Mad Mexican". They lived in a hut on the property of Yalumba wines. The area became known as Mexican Vale. Richard is described as a carpenter and in a newpaper article on Benjamin's 67th Wedding anniversary he notes his father Richard helped build Lindsay House in Angaston for George Fife Angas, who was one of the founding fathers of the SA colony. Richard later became a veterinary surgeon as he had studied animal surgery in England according to Ben.

      After Sarah's death in 1849 Richard remarried an Agnes Mickle on 15 Feb 1854, Agnes was 20 years old and Richard 54. They had their first child Jacob soon after getting married on 15 June 1854 and were living at Mexican Vale, Angaston (NW of Adelaide). They had 3 children.
