The Current Banister List:
This is a list of Banastre / Banister family members found so far.
The names linking back to the 11th century are, as you would expect, still incomplete and are in a process of continual research.
There are a large number which do link up through the centuries and are now firmly connected.
But there are some generation gaps, where the gap is only established as an ancestral link due to the location and status of the family in the town/village or the link is established due to the ownership of properties or the conveyancing of land to subsequent generations.
There was clearly a number of Banisters that travelled across the Atlantic to the Americas but only some names have been established and mostly on the east coast, as one might expect.
