Ransted of Winchester/Alton
« on: Thursday 17 May 18 10:53 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I haven't been able to find christenings, but this report - https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://studylib.net/doc/8626767/descendants-of-richard-ransted&ved=2ahUKEwidj-W1vIzbAhUqLsAKHfnXCtkQFjAAegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw2tpHlnKwN05J9sjwvXyThp - links the 3 individuals together. It cites wills and other evidence so it appears to be factual.

I am looking for:
Richard Ransted, born around 1615, Winchester, Hampshire.
John Ransted, born around 1644, Winchester, Hampshire (probably St. Maurice).
John Ransted, born around 1670, either Winchester or Alton.

I'd appreciate any help!

Thanks for all of that! There's certainly a lot on them. My line from the Ransteds goes (from the Streaters):

Henry Streater, born 1772, East Worldham
Ann Towers, born 1747, East Worldham
Sarah Gunner was Ransted, born 1704, Alton

And I presume Sarah Ransted is a descendant of Richard as that is what this report stated.
