Bashay Early Origins



The surname Bashay 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.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Bashays to arrive on North American shores: Bashor Michel Bashor, aged 22, who arrived at Ellis Island from Beyrouth, in 1906; Th. C. Bashor, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1919; and Thurston Bashor, aged 20, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1920.
