Lasbury may sound to be a quintessentially English family name, it may have originated from the Lasborough in Gloucestershirebut . However, the original spelling in c1719 was Laspor and the name Lasper was still used in the 1839 tithe map. It is possible that Lasper and Lasbury are two different names and the 18th century clerks made a mistake.
The 18th century churchwarden accounts show looks like a John Laspor  paying rates for a holding  in West End from c1733 to 1734 then a Benjamin Rich took over. James Lasbury took over  again c1754 according to the poor-law records. The 1800 map shows that Lasbury Lane connected Nedge to Tor Hole.
 The Lasburys were  sometimes  listed as paying rates in the Town tithing and the field called Laspors in 1839 could be described as being in either tithing.
