"Indentures" for 17th Century Crossland immigrants to Virginia have never been found and probably no longer exist.
The indentures shown below are for other immigrants, but likely typify indentures for the early Crossland ancestors and are included here as examples of such.
Note that the indentures give the name, parish of origin, occupation and age of the person agreeing to serve, the name of the master, the length and location of the service, and the date of the indenture. They also give the name of parents who consented to indenture their underage children.
