I figured I'd get off my duff and participate.

The first record I find of an ancestor in the parish has a question mark next to his name....Robert Cruwys, 1369-1406.  From him, I think it goes:
Alexander Cruwys, 1326-1387, m. Julian UNK
Sir Robert Cruwys, 1299-1360, m. Isabel de St. Aubyn
Sir Alexander Cruwys, 1274-1331, m. Constance UNK
Sir Robert Cruwys, 1237-1310, m. Matilda FitzPayn
Sir Alexander Cruwys, 1212-1280

Before that, I have two generations of the family from East Antsey, which I understand was also held by the family.  I start at:

Thomasine Cruse, b. 1425, m. Richard Pollard
Robert Cruse, b. 1400
Which brings me back to Robert Cruwys 1369-1406.

Does anyone connect?  Have more/better info?

I've accumulated lots of material on the early generations of the Cruwys family but haven't yet attempted to put it into any reasonable order. I'm a bit confused about your Pollards. Do you have documentation to prove the link back to Thomasine Cruse? I understood that Thomasina was the daughter of Robert Cruse and Margaret Corun. According to the Cruwys Morchard Notebook Robert died in 1411. He became Lord of the Manor in 1382 when he was still a minor. In 1426 Richard Pollard was one of three people presented to East Anstey. I always presumed that this Richard Pollard was Thomasine's wife. This does not however accord with your 1425 birthdate for Thomasina.

I also have a summary of this document from the Cruwys Morchard House collection (in private hands) which suggests that Richard and Thomasina had already married by 1413:
