Thomas Halston left “16d. to the building of the Tower of Chewton and 6d. to Saynt Andrews in Wellys” , in his Will, made on March 13th 1541.
There are other references to members of the  family in the area up to the he 18th century churchwarden accounts and poor-law records which show a Widow Halstone paying rates for an estate in the Middlesex tithing whilst William Halston was based in Widcombe. A member of the family was apprenticed to another estate (page 2229).
