➡️ The following names were found in various historical records such as Ash Muster Rolls, Tax Lists, Court Documents, Land Transactions, Manor Records, Wills, and old books.

➡️ The names were then cross-referenced with the Ash Parish Register to generate this list of Ash families from the 1500’s which gives us a good sample of the main families of Ash Parish.
