Baston Coat of Arms

Ancestors of Adam Luke John BASTON of Andover, Hampshire, UK


8192. John BASTON

  1604 left one bushel of barley in his grandmother, Elizabeth's will.
  I suspect Joan, John's first wife had died and he remarried an Elizabeth, an Elizabeth was granted Administration upon his death.  There is a reference to an Elizabeth Bason who is a widow and landholder in a 1666/67 deed "An agreement betwixt Thomas Horde Esq and the Freeholders, Leaseholders and Copyholders of Aston and Cote" to which Elizabeth is one of the signatories. Since found the marriage of John Baston & Elizabeth Hore at St Clement's, Oxford in 1626.
  1648 Administration of John Baston's estate, regrettably all that survives is the inventory and there doesn't seem to be a Will so he probably died intestate, Adminstration was granted to Elizabeth as Joan had died and he had remarried.  This is borne out by the fact that Elizabeth herself has a Will in 1689 and there is no record of a Joan will.
  I was told by other Baston/Basson researchers that to this day there is still a little animosity between the two sides of the family and I think I now know the reason why.  It would appear that John left everything to his second wife, Elizabeth and she in turn left it to the children of this second marriage with little going to the children of John's first marriage.

1593 Baptised at Bampton, lived Aston.
1616 Married Jone Munkster/Kempster.
1626 Married Elizabeth Hore.
1643 Buried, St Mary's Church, Bampton.

8193. Elizabeth HORE

SURNAME: Also shown as HOARE
I think this is the correct Elizabeth of the three baptised around this time in Oxfordshire as she is the only one of the three for which, a/ there is no burial and b/ no other marriage.

4096. Edie BASTON

Probably named after her maternal grandmother Edye Weekes.

  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
