There was a crowd *come* from
"There was a crowd of eager, noisy, and good–humoured natives come from all parts of the island, some from curiosity, others to barter with the travellers on their way to Sydney..."
(W.S. Maugham; Rain)
Can I say 'coming' and would it change the meaning somehow?
Re: There was a crowd *come* from
Yes- it would imply to me that they haven't all arrived.
