Paul, hello again!
Nobody will be able to help you as it stands. You need to say why you believe this to be so, and if you have done any research yourself to find a connection with this name.
Virtually nobody who reads this will know where Bashley is - including me!

If the Bashley you mention is the New Forest one-yes there are quite a few SHERRED/SHERRIDs around,many were "travellers" originally and my DIL has some in her "tree"

Do you have some names ?
