Richard Anstey (AY 2)

See ‘Anstey: A Complete History From the Norman Invasion to World War One‘ for much more on the Aynho 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 Aynho Ansteys fit into the pedigree descendent from Hubert de Anesti, the 12th century originator of the ‘Anstey’ surname.

AY 2. Richard Anstey : Son of Roger (AY 1), he married Mary Elliot in Aynho in 1766, having at least two sons in Aynho, James (AY 3) and Thomas (AY 4). In 1771 he appeared on the Northamptonshire Militia List for “Aynho, King’s Sutton” and he died in Aynho in 1800, having lived there all his life.
