Baston Coat of Arms

Descendants of John Baston & Isabel Thatcher married 1552 Bampton, Oxfordshire

There was quite a large contingent of Baston/Basson's in Oxfordshire in the 1600 and 1700's and this line is centred on Bampton. It is thought they were mainly farmers and farm labourers, the only references are some early wills and marriage bonds in which they are referred to as "Yeoman and husbandmen" and an old title deed dated 1769 which mentions William Baston leased a small holding in the area and had given it up just before he died in 1771 and it was being sold on and finally, an 1821 enclosure map that shows the "copyhold known as Bastons" in which the location of the Baston house in Bampton is shown together with the land just of the Buckland turnpike road.

The families other than my direct line need proving, I have tried to sort out the various families using the data contained in the various wills and deeds and matching that to the known baptisms/marriages and deaths. There are various baptisms etc missing from the records despite being mentioned in the wills and deeds. This could either be in the early 1600's when the copying of the 1538 - 1613 paper registers onto parchment was done as they were in a poor state or some of the baptisms may have been at Clanfield and/or Shifford, where in both cases all the early registers were destroyed by damp.

For other Baston, Basson etc families unconnected with this line, please see the "One Name Study" part of the web site.
