Karen, Thanks for these links. I was already familiar with the Irish links about Cruisetown and the Rathmore Cruises. I was not aware of the American Cruce publication which looks very useful. I've only glanced through it but it's very helpful to have transcriptions of the original PRs from Belfast.

Pontius de Cruce is unlikely to be related to the Irish Cruises. The surname simply means "cross".
