Alexander de Cruwys was the son of Robert de Cruwys and an unknown 2nd wife. Most references make him the son of Robert's wife Julianne de St. Aubyn, however, this is almost certainly incorrect. In 1332, Robert and Isabelle settled each of their properties on themselves with a remainder to the heirs of their bodies, and failing such heirs on to their individual right heirs. [Devon Feet of Fines. Volume 2. 1 Edward I-43 Edward III. 1272-1369, Fine no. 1254, p. 283-284] As none of the extensive St. Aubyn properties continued in the Cruwys line, it must be assumed that Isabelle was not the mother of Alexander. He was probably born circa 1342 as on 1 July 1363 Edward of Woodstock, prince of Wales presented to Morchard Cruwys by reason of the minority of Alexander Cruys; however, it seems Alexander was already of age as it was his candidate who was accepted and not the prince's. [Register of Edward, the Black Prince, vol. II (Great Britain. Public Record Office, 1931). P. 204] [Register of John de Grandisson, Bishop of Exeter, (A.D. 1327-1369), part III, by Rev. F.C. Hingeston-Randolph (1899). p. 1491] He had license to alienate land to the parson of Cruwys Morchard on 14 Feb. 1363, indicating he had already come of age by this date. On 12 July 1363, as Alexander Crewes, lord of Morchard he witnessed a quitclaim of Walter Corte.[English Deeds Prior to 1570. Citing 'A Cruwys Morchard Notebook, 1066-1874]

Alexander married Julianne. (Julianne died after 29 Sep 1414 in England.)
