Tarrant Family of Oxford and Berkshire


The first known ancestors of our branch of the Tarrant tree lived at the beginning of the 18th century in Oxfordshire and Berkshire.

The use of the surname Tarrant and variations, mostly Tarry or Terry, was fluid and some individuals used multiple names.

The Will of Michael Tarrant (generation 2) written in 1762 proved crucial in identifying several other relatives, as did
the Will of Michael Tarrant, Terry or Tarry (generation 4) in 1792.

As with most other families in England, many descendants migrated to distant countries such as Australia, New Zealand, America and Canada.
