English merchant James Crewes (1623-1677), emigrated to Virginia by 1655 and acquired a 541 acre plantation at Turkey Island. As a planter, burgess from Henrico County and militia officer, Crewes disagreed with the governor's policies related to native commerce, perceived high taxation and apathy over Native American attacks on the Virginia frontier. In 1675, he and other residents joined with Nathaniel Bacon to protect their interests in the colony. Captured and found guilty as an instigator in Bacon's Rebellion, Crewes was hanged near Jamestown in January of 1677. His Turkey Island plantation was purchased by William Randolph in 1684.
