Crozier born born in Bombay not Isle of Wight. West Hill was the family home/estate. See his entry in 1861 census for confirmation.

In fact this family of the Isle of Wright are distinct from the Croziers of Francis Crozier of North West Passage Fame

Is there any connection with Capt. Francis Crozier of HMS Terror fame?
