BIOGRAPHY

Crump was born as Felicity Adair Impey in Kings Norton, Worcestershire, England on 21 January 1913. She was the second of four children born to Francis Levitt Impey and Ethel Jane Adair Roberts. Her siblings were Honor, David, and Patrick. Her mother campaigned strongly for the Suffragette movement.

Crump’s father visited Alderney in 1930, and became enthralled by the island. He rented Fort Corblets from the War Department until the start of World War II, then bought it for the family to stay during their summer holidays. In 1945, Felicity married James W Crump in Birmingham, England, and had one son, Peter.

Crump retired to Alderney in 1978. She began partaking in island activities including the music society, the art club, the Wildlife Trust and the Alderney Society. She penned a book, The Alderney Cow, which was on sale at the museum, and she was a shareholder of The Alderney Journal. Her 100th birthday saw 65 friends and family members, including six great-grandchildren, attend the celebration at Fort Corblets.

In December 2018, aged 105, Crump became Alderney’s oldest voter, being inspired by her mother’s campaigns to vote in the election. She received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in January and February 2021 respectively.

RECOGNITION

Crump was first noted for her longevity on her 100th birthday, when the Guernsey Press did a story on her. She was next reported aged 105, when she became Alderney’s oldest voter.

In early 2021, the Island Medical Centre posted about Crump on their Facebook page when she received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. In January 2023, she turned 110, becoming Guernsey’s first supercentenarian in almost 120 years. Margaret Neve, the first supercentenarian from Guernsey, died in April 1903. Her great-niece posted about her 110th birthday on Facebook praising her longevity.

Her age was verified by Andrew Holmes, and validated by the ESO on 28 March 2023.
