Coll. Mun. L/STA/6. "
  Victoria Book of Oxford, Vol 13, Bampton Hundred, quotes and cites other sources that the lease pertained to a William & Susannah Baston .  This reference to the Baston family has since been disproved, the original documents are for a William & Susannah Bosely and not Baston.  The Parish Registers for Standlake corroborate the family details for the Bosely family mentioned in the lease.  
   For the sake of completeness the original erroneous references are shown below
   a) Referring to Standlake the Victoria History of Oxfordshire says "Building work by small yeoman or cottagers is commemorated by inscriptions at 2 Lancot Lane  (EBX 1673 for Edward & Christian Bennet) , the Black Horse Public House (WBS 1673 for William & Susannah ), and Bracken Cottage on High Street (IKA 1717 for John & Katherine Alder)."
  b) The is also a summary reference of the papers in the Bodleian Library "Tenancy was then given to William Baston, soldier, and his wife Susannah, and some rebuilding took place, 'W.B.M. 1673' is carved on a beam over the present lounge fireplace, with a crude letter 'S' added. 'W.B.S. 1673 (William  & Susannah) is cut on a stone in the outer street wall; the lady did not intend to be omitted from the history. An Edward Shipway seems to have followed, and from 1753 Quarter Sessions Recognizance's begin to record names of licensees, the first being John Carter, 1753 to 1769. "
  c) Additional information extracted by Carol Harmond in 2009 from Brig. Goadby's personal 1971 notes on the Black Horse deposited in the Bodleian Library
  "16th January 1672 - Lease of “James” to William Baston, soldier and wife Susannah, vice William Strange, with succession to son William and daughter Susannah for life at 6s 8d (Attorney, William Townsend).  Original  deeds held by Lincoln College (Linc Coll Mun L/STA/6) show that it was in fact a William Bosely and not William Baston ."
   (NOTE: This reference to the  Baston family has been disproved by Carol Harmond, 13th July 2011. The original documents clearly show William & Susannah Bosely as the lessees,  original lease: Linc. Coll. Mun. L/ST/6.

   Despite the loss of much detail in its heading, this Oxfordshire document remains explicitly an individual assessment for the sixth collection, due at Lady Day (25 March) 1665, for the hearth tax granted to Charles II in 1662 (as seems confirmed also by an indistinct note in Latin on the dorse of the final rotulet).
   However, a note at the very end of the individual assessment (rot 66d) records the roll's 'allowance' at the quarter sessions in Oxford on 24 April 1666, and a delivery date in May 1666 is entered in the same location (close to the point where the roll is sewn).

3Children of John Baston & Mary Spinnage vs John Baston & Susannah Palmer. "
  Thoughts on sorting out the children of:-
John Baston & Mary Spinnage m 10 Oct 1697 Bampton, (we assume John is of Bampton as no mention of him being from elsewhere).
John Baston & Susanna Palmer m 26 Oct 1699 Begbroke, both of Aston, (probably shown as Jn Jnr), note this marriage is shown on the IGI as 1679 but is clearly 1699 when you view the original register.
John Baston & Joan Beeche m 23 Jan 1708 (1707/8) Clanfield, John of Aston, Joan of Cote. (Probably the father of John married 1699).

(Bold words above are the facts from either the Baptism Registers or the 1742 Will.  All dates have been corrected to the post 1725 calendar (1st January to 24th March were shown as of the previous year before 1725) but are also shown in parenthesis as uncorrected/corrected  (1707/8) years.

  The various Bampton baptism register entries are as follows (all transcribed from the original register):-
  John Baston & Mary Spinnage married 10 Oct 1697 Bampton.
  John Baston & Susanna Palmer married 26 Oct 1699 Begbroke.


  Mary Baston*         25 Sep 1698  s  Jon Baston, labourer.
  John Barson           17 Mar 1700  s  John Barson. (1699/1700)
  Susanna Baston        1 Jan 1701   d  Jno Baston jnr of Aston. (1700/1701)
  Elizabeth Baston*    17 May 1702  d  Jn Baston.
  John Baston             5 Dec 1702  s  Jn jnr of Aston, labourer.
  Ann Baston*           20 Dec 1703  d  John Baston p (parish?).
  Francis Barston*     22 Jun 1705  s  John Barston p (parish?).
  Joseph Barston        13 Jul 1705  s  John Barston p (parish?).
  Jane Basson            28 Sep 1708  d  John Basson.
  William Basson*        1 Dec 1708  s  John Basson.
  Jonathan Baston       17 Mar 1711  s  John Baston. (1710/1711).
  William Basson          2 Jun 1714  s  Jonathan Basson (Jonathan married Elizabeth Carter 12 Nov 1710).

  From the 1742 Will of Elizabeth Baston a spinster we know that Mary, John, Elizabeth, Ann, Francis & William are all children of the same John as she mentions them all, as of "her brother John".. (* = only possible entry matching the 1742 Will).
  There is only one Mary baptised to a John around the required period, this is to a Jon, 25th September 1698.  As the only couple married at that time were John Baston and Mary Spinnage, this should therefore be the John named in the 1742 Will with a daughter Mary.
  Likewise, there is only one Ann baptised around the period, this is to a Jn, 20th December 1703, so Ann is also to John & Mary Spinnage Baston.  (Ann is also Mary Spinnages mother's first name).
  And again, there is only one Francis, baptised 22nd June 1705 to a John, so we can allocate Francis to John & Mary Spinnage Baston.
  As to William, we only have one William baptised to John, this is on 1st December 1708, therefore this William must be to John & Mary Spinnage Baston.  We know from the 1742 Will that there were both a William of John and a William of Jonathan mentioned, so the two baptisms 1708 & 1714 are as shown.
  This leaves John, William and Elizabeth (who is named as the wife of John Bennett in the 1742 Will, they were married 9th Oct 1725 Bampton).
  For John, we have two possibilities, John baptised 17th March 1700 (1699/1700) to John and John 15th December 1702 to Jn Jnr.  There is a Susanna shown as being baptised 1st January 1701 (1700/01) to Jn Jnr of Aston, we can, I think, assume this Susanna would have been the first daughter to John & Susannah Palmer Baston of Aston, therefore the John shown baptised to Jn Jnr, would be to John & Susannah Palmer Baston, which leaves the John baptised 1700 to John & Mary Spinnage Baston.
  Finally Elizabeth, there is only one shown for the period, 17th May 1702 to Jn.  This is only seven months before the baptism of the John to Jn Jnr (John & Susannah Palmer Baston) shown above, so we can safely assume this Elizabeth is to John & Mary Spinnage Baston as it is too close to the baptism of John in December 1702 .
  The only unallocated baptisms to John during this period are for Jane Basson 28th September 1708 to John Baston and Jonathan Baston 7th March 1710/11 to John, both in Bampton. As to Jane, she can't be to John & Mary Spinnage Baston as they have a William baptised in December of the same year, so it must be either the Palmer or Beeche Bastons, I suspect it's the Palmers, especially as John's mother was Jane Bendall.  
   For Jonathan it is either Mary Spinnage or Susannah Palmer, as both already have Johns.  I suspect that Jonathan was to John & Mary Spinnage Baston as having both a John & Jonathan was a common trait on this side of the family. Whichever it was, Jonathan appears to have been buried in 1714 as an infant.
   So the children to John & Mary Spinnage Baston are Mary 1698, John 1700, Elizabeth 1702, Ann 1703, Francis 1705, William 1708 & Jonathan 1711 (this matches the 1742 Will of Elizabeth Baston).
  To John & Susannah Palmer Baston we now have, Susanna 1701 (1700/01), John 1702, Joseph 1705 & Jane 1708.
  Written by Carol Harmond (neé Baston).

I have been advised that jnr (short for junior) didn't necessarily mean the son of the other, it could be used to differentiate between 2 possibly unconnected men of the same name..

St Michael's Church, Stanton Harcourt, 7th July 1745.
Elizabeth Bason, single woman."
I originally discounted this burial for Elizabeth whose Will probate date of 17th February 1742 but this is adjusted to 1743 in the new calender and it appears that people were quite often not "officially" buried until well after the Will had been settled and all monies paid as nobody was prepared to put their hand in their pocket, just in case.  This peculiarity has now occured several times with Baston deaths and subsequent burials where a Will was concerned..

  I'm still researching so if you have anything to add or correct then
please email Baston Family Genealogy

Please mention the RIN number attached to a person's name as it is very difficult for me to know for which John, William, Thomas, Edward etc you wish to have more information.

Thank you
