5Yeoman, definition of. "
  The term has changed its meaning over time. In the 13th to 15th centuries it was principally applied to a knight's servants or retainers, though in the royal household, the minor officials under the Chamberlain were known as the Yeomen of the King's Chamber, Geoffrey Chaucer was once a yeoman in this sense.
   Under the Tudors the use of the term was gradually widened to include the prosperous working farmers below the rank of the gentry the class formerly known as franklins. They worked their own land, but did not necessarily have to be freeholders. Yeomen increasingly held their land by a variety of tenures: freehold, copyhold* and leasehold.  
   The term had no legal precision but was used informally to distinguish a farmer who was more prosperous than the average husbandman. The wealth that was needed for a farmer to be judged a yeoman by his neighbours varied from region to region and over time. The term is, commonly found in the wills and inventories of the early modern period, but during the 18th and 19th centuries both 'Yeoman' and 'husbandman' were gradually abandoned in favour of the all embracing 'farmer'.
   If the term 'yeoman' is associated with land, or degree of land ownership, then it may have its ancient roots in the early Anglo-Saxon rule of England or earlier (thus coming full circle to its most likely etymological roots). In ancient times the land was a strong indicator of social status, and wealth, since the period known as the Dark Ages, and in terms like 'yeoman farmer' used in the 16th Century to denote prosperous small farmers; whether land was copyhold, freehold, or a mixture of both.
  As land indicated social status, just as the term yeoman farmer in the 1600's as an identifier of social status for small freeholders or copyholders of land with and an indicated amount of wealth that is a determining factor of his social standing. Not all yeomen owned land as many were indentured or feudal servants in a castle. In earlier Anglo Saxon rule, the class of 'geneatas' would most likely be the classification a 'yeoman' in this period as an aristocratic peasantry.
  The 'yeoman' would be the connection between royalty and nobility to the peasantry, thus a middling class of sorts in feudal or manorial service to either the king, or a lord. Also possibly identified within a class of libri homini (freemen) within Domesday, the 'yeoman' in service to a king or lord would be known as serviens/sergeants, or valet/valectus during the Norman period. There are also men known as 'socmen' or 'sokemen', usually derived from Anglian or Danish sources, equivalent in status as 'radman', thus combining land status and servile status as equals
  *Copyhold
  Has its origin in medieval England, Copyhold property was held by the custom of the manor as opposed to freehold where possession was (and is) absolute. By the end of the Middle Ages, however, there was very little difference between copyhold and freehold. The main difference was that copyhold tenants had to pay a notional rent to the Manor and to pay a fine when they sold the property.  Copyholds were gradually enfranchised (turned into ordinary holdings of land-either freehold or 999-year leasehold) during the 19th century. Copyhold tenure was ended by the Law of Property Act 1925 which forced all copyhold land and property to be enfranchised, that is, turned into freehold.

HISTORY OF THE DRAGOONS
  Light dragoons have always been rather special troops. They were first raised in the middle of the Eighteenth Century for reconnaissance and patrolling - in other words scouting - but soon acquired a reputation for courage and dash in the charge. Originally, each regiment of cavalry formed a light troop, but so successful was the idea that whole regiments were formed. The 15th Light Dragoons were the first ever (1759), and others quickly followed including the Eighteenth and Nineteenth. The Thirteenth, raised as heavy dragoons (mounted infantrymen) as early as 1715, were also converted to the light role.
   These light dragoon regiments fought all over the world in the half-century that followed, notably in India and North America. They distinguished themselves under the Duke of Wellington in Spain and Portugal in the Napoleonic wars, and three of them were present at the battle of Waterloo (1815).(www.army.mod.uk)   So Francis was probably injured during the Battle Of Waterloo 1815..

12Coat of Arms - May, English origin (www.houseofnames.com), May surname. "
Shield: Red with a gold horizontal stripe between eight gold squares.
Crest: A leopard's head emerging from a crown.
Motto: None.
  The May family name dates back to 1066 when the Norman Conquest of England introduced a plethora of new names and words into Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person born or baptized in the month of May. The name May is derived from the Old French word mai, which has cognates in the other European languages that were all derived from the Latin word Maius. This name was also a nickname for a person with a particularly sunny disposition or a person who had an anecdotal connection with the month of May. Often this connection would be the time that feudal obligations were owed. Nicknames, such as May, that described the time or season of the birth, baptism or conversion of the original bearer were frequently adopted in the medieval era. Additionally, numerous nicknames referred to various religious festivals, medieval name days, or the particular day of the week when feudal services were fulfilled.
   Spelling variations include: May, Mai, Maye and others.  First found in Sussex where they were anciently seated as Lords of the manor of Faunt." Image.

13Coat of Arms - May, German origin (www.houseofnames.com), May surname. "
German Origin.
The Shield: Blue background with a silver tower.
The Crest: Five ostrich feathers.
The motto:  None.
  The German surname may first emerged in the Rhineland, and means, simply, "May." The name was most likely originally borne by someone who was either born in the month of May or particularly fond of the spring.
  Spelling variations include: May, Mai, Mais, Maye, Mey, de May, du May, Maya and many more.  First found in the Rhineland, where this family was a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times." Image.

  I'm still researching so if you have anything to add or correct then
please email Baston Family Genealogy

Please mention the RIN number attached to a person's name as it is very difficult for me to know for which John, William, Thomas, Edward etc you wish to have more information.
