My great-great grandfather was Joseph Henry Basten, born on 1st September, 1845 to Henry and Elen Basten in Newington, London. He was recorded in several of the censuses as a Baker. He married Rebecca Hill who was descended from silk weavers of Bethnal Green, London. I think Joseph is descended from Bastens in Ottery St.Mary, Devon but am still trying to work out the connections. At present I don't know when Joseph died. Do you think we are talking about the same Joseph?
