At least one family of Blacketts lived in Buckinghamshire from the late 1400s in and around Bicester and Aylesbury and surrounding villages until at least the late 18th century. This line may descend from William Blaket, a miller, of Bicester, who was a defendant in the Court of Common Pleas in 1489 and 1490. However, we have not yet established a line of descent through parish records, so this line should be treated with care. The connection, if any, with the Blacketts of north-east England or other branches of the family has not yet been established. At least one of these Blacketts, John Blackett, the son of Richard Blackett, yeoman of Aston Sandford, was apprenticed to a London vintner on 6 Mar 1637/8. It is not clear whether he remained in London, however.
