On the origin: Crews, Screws sound the same in Devon. S Crews (Cruse) = servant of the cross, or servant of Christ. Could be from: Cruwys, Scruwys. Could be from St. Crews. Name is also spelled Crews, Cruse, Scruse, Crewes, Screwes etc. Origin, believe Devon, most likely Norman. Could be a new world spelling of Crews family.Scruse, Screws could then have returned to England, then to other colonies.Scruse/Screws families are in England, South Africa and Australia. I like servant of Christ.
