It is tempting to link Daniel to this family, perhaps as the son of George Crickmore born in 1693. It is also tempting to link Mary, the daughter of Daniel and Sarah Crickmore who was baptised at Chatham in 1758 (IGI), and perhaps even the George Crickmore who married Mary Ellams of Greenwich in 1746/7. It may even be possible that Gould Crickmore, bachelor of Chatham, who married Elizabeth Barber at St John Horsleydown church in 1783 may also be linked.
