The Barfoot Family Family Groups

[ 16th Century | 17th Century | 18th Century | 19th Century ]

Each family group contains the named person with his children. The date next to the group name is the date of birth of the main person. Because the number of names in common usage during the 17th and 18th centuries was somewhat limited, most of the people in this list have been given an additional identifier, for example Daniel Barfoot, "the smallpox victim", or Daniel Barfoot, "senior".

16th Century

At present I have only traced the Barfoot family of Ashton back to the 16th Century. This is, however, just because the Ashton manorial records are particularly easy to use, and is not an indication that most of the Barfoots in Hampshire were from Ashton (although this may well be true). For continuity with later sections, I have marked all the descendents of Robert Barfoot, Grandsenior, of Ashton with the word "Ashton".

ca 1500 Robert Barfoot, Grandsenior, of Ashton Ashton
ca 1550 Robert Barfoot, Senior, of Ashton Ashton
ca 1590 Robert Barfoot of Ashton Ashton
ca 1590 Henry Barfoot, Senior Ashton

17th Century

The 17th Century Barfoots can essentially be divided into four groups: those descended from Ashton family (above), those descended from Edward Barfoot of Curdridge, the Barfoots from the Romsey area, and others. For the sake of interest, this is marked after the person's name. As yet I have been unable to link the Ashton, the Curdridge and the Romsey families together. (I have no proof that the Romsey Barfoots were all one family, although I think it is probable. They are merely lumped together out of convenience.)

18th Century

During the 18th Century, most of the Barfoots that I have traced are descended from the Curdridge Barfoots of the previous century. During the early part of that century two brothers, Thomas of Botley and James of South Stoneham moved from Curdridge to Botley and South Stoneham respectively. I have marked their descendants separately.

1706 William Barfoot of Curdridge Curdridge
1709 James Barfoot of South Stoneham South Stoneham
1730 Thomas Barfoor, Junior Botley

1785 James Barfoot of Twyford Botley
1794 Daniel Barfoot, Senior, of Portsea Curdridge
1798 Sarah Barfoot, of Bishop's Waltham Curdridge

19th Century

By the 19th Century, the Botley and South Stoneham families have become very muddled, with too many people with too few different names all in a small area, and consequentially only a few branches have been traced forward into this century with any certainty. The Ashton family has died out, moved out or else become untraceable. However, by this time the Curdridge family has again expanded and now has branches in Hedge End (a new parish formed mostly out of Botley), on Portsea island, and in the Southwick area.
