About Christian Crawford, "Christina"

'A concise history of Port Beaufort & White Sands (also known as Witsand) including Family Trees White Sands & Port Beaufort' by John McGregor.

http://archive.org/stream/moodiebookbeing00ruvi#page/n7/mode/2up (pp 41-44):

Daughter and heiress of Alexander Crawford of Kerse, Ayrshire (and widow of William Ballenden of Stenness) the second wife of Capt James Moodie, seventh Laird of Melsetter, was "somewhat of a character and a lady of strong passions" who resided alternately at Aikerness House, Evie, and at Melsetter. She managed the estate during her son's minority and she "ruled with a rod of iron" in the difficult times of being "a woman guardian of the fortunes of a Hanovrian family in a Jacobite country". She was still living on 17 April 1749.
