John Anstey (CD 4)

See ‘Anstey: A Complete History From the Norman Invasion to World War One‘ for much more on the Caddington Ansteys. In addition to biographies of various Anstey individuals who make up this sub-branch, the book contains a plethora of Anstey research and statistics, including an analysis of how the Caddington Ansteys fit into the pedigree descendent from Hubert de Anesti, the 12th century originator of the ‘Anstey’ surname.

CD 4. John Anstey: He was baptised in Caddington on 16 February 1589 to father John Anstey (CD 3), though he grew up in Studham. He married Ann in c1615 and had children (baptised in both Caddington and Studham):

  • John Anstey (bap 22 November 1616 Caddington);
  • Daniel Anstey (bap 16 November 1617 Caddington – it is just possible that he is somehow connected to Daniel Anstee (NP 3) of Newport Pagnell though we currently have zero evidence apart from the name…research continues);
  • Susan Anstey (bap 3 January 1619 Caddington);
  • Ann Anstey (bap 24 December 1620);
  • William Anstey (bap 23 November 1623 Studham, buried in Studham on 14 December 1624);
  • Elizabeth (bap 4 December 1625 Studham, married Thomas Deacon in Studham on 5 June 1645); and
  • Thomas Anstey (bap 24 March 1630 Caddington, he was “of Market Street“ when he was buried in Caddington on 16 January 1667 – see below)

He was a copyholder in Caddington (also connected to Market Street) and he was still alive in 1631 when his wife Ann died – she was buried in Caddington.

When Thomas (b 1630) was buried in Caddington in 1667, the Caddington Anstey sub-branch became Anstey-extinct.
