Early Origins of the Wbaysinger family
Hampshire at Basing or Old Basing as it is sometimes known. This village and parish is in the union and hundred of Basingstoke. The first listing of this Saxon place name was found in 871 when it was listed as Basengum. An Anglo-Saxon tribe was known as the Basingas and some believe that is is the true source of the village name as literally the place name means "settlement of the followers of a man called Basa."

Migration of the Wbaysinger family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Wbaysinger family to immigrate North America: Samuel Baysinger, aged 45, who arrived at Ellis Island from Batton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1912; Emma Basinger, aged 52, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1914.
