The Paston Family Tree

The Paston story starts in the 1300s with Clement Paston, a simple farm labourer and reaches it's finale in the 1600s when Robert Paston, a close friend of King Charles II, becomes Earl of Yarmouth and lives a life of privilege and wealth at Oxnead Hall. Robert's grand-daugher Charlotte Paston had to sell the family possessions and estates when they faced financial ruin and was one of the last of the Pastons.
