Ancestors of Adam Luke John BASTON of Andover, Hampshire, UK
William (Basson) BASTON
Either William Basson (RIN 2324) born 1 March 1631, Christened
27 April 1631 to John & Elizabeth Baston (married 1626 nee Hore) or less
likely, William Basten Christened at St Mary's Church, Witney, 10th August
1628 to Robert.
1662 and 1665 Taxed on one hearth.
Debora [?] FLETCHER [?]
William's wife was probably a Deborah as that is the only new name
introduced into the family at this time. William (1627/8) had both a
daughter and a granddaughter christened Deborah. There is a burial for a
"Debera Baston of Aston" at Bampton in 1700, this is probably his wife as
there were no other Deborah Baston's around at that time except as noted
I originally had William's (1631) wife as Susannah as per the
information contained in Brig Goadby's notes regarding William & Susannah
Baston taking over the lease at Black Horse at Standlake in 1672. This has
since proved incorrect as the original documents clearly show that is was a
William Bosely and his wife Susannah as the lessees of the Black Horse in
(NB. The 1700 Deborah Baston burial can't be the Deborah Baston born 1675
as she married a John Cook and her burial is in Southwark, so this 1700
burial is almost certainly William's wife Debora.)
Probably the Elizabeth who died 1742 in East Hendred originally
from Bampton - see will 1742.
Died 1742 a spinster according to her will. The only burial I can find is of
an Elizabeth Baston in 1745 at Stanton Harcourt "17th July 1745, Elizabeth
Baston a single woman".
1742 Will, was left bulk of her sister, Elizabeth's estate.
The only Deborah's baptised at Bampton between 1660 & 1700 are Deborah Bazly
to a William 26th November 1665, (maybe an incorrect spelling and this is
the one) or the other is Deborah Joyes 20th November 1667 to Henry Joyes.
Added in as he is mentioned in his sister, Elizabeth's 1742 Will,
also in his sister Deborah's 1754 Will..
1742 Mentioned in his sister Elizabeth's Will as deceased with
legacies to his two sons, Henry & William.
Possibly married Marie Morland 2nd October 1655 Sulhampstead
