Faringdon, Berkshire (now Oxfordshire)

The Spurretts of the Lambourn Downs would have had some connection with Farringdon as it was a very important market town in the late eighteenth century.  However, the Spurretts who inhabited the town in Victorian time were third-generation descendants of the traveller Thomas SPURRETT b.1752.  By this time the name had been incrementally corrupted to SPIRET and some of the living SPIRITs in the area may well be descended from this branch.   There certainly are SPIRETTs in Bagshot, Surrey that descend from Thomas Charles SPIRET and George SPIRETT who migrated from Faringdon in the late 1800’s.
