Bash Early Origins



The surname Bash was first found in Hertfordshire at Stanstead Abbots, a parish, in the union of Ware, hundred of Braughin. The first record that we could find was of Edward Bashe, the son of a Worcester tradesman who served in the naval victualling department for 40 years, and obtained a grant of Stanstead Abbots in 1559. His son Ralph Baesh built the church "situated on an eminence one mile south-east from the village in 1578." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
And his son, Sir Edward Baesh founded almshouses for six widows in 1636, and a free grammar school. A few years later in the same parish, Rye House was home to the plot laid in 1683 against the lives of Charles II., and James, Duke of York.

Bash Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Bashe, Bash, Bashy, Baesh and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bash or a variant listed above:
