1604 left one bushel of barley in his grandmother, Elizabeth's
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.
