Les Paston n’ont rien fait de grand et de notable dans l’histoire de l’Angleterre, mais leur correspondance a été conservée. Elle s’étend de 1436 à 1504 et comprend un millier de lettres. Un cinquième seulement en a été retenu pour être commenté et replacé dans le cadre des mentalités et des événements de l’époque. Les Paston n’ont jamais été en contact avec Jeanne d’Arc. Mais ils ont hérité des biens de John Fastolf, le "fuyard" de la bataille de Patay, mort en 1459. Issus de la paysannerie, les Paston entrèrent dans la Gentry et participèrent à la guerre des Deux Roses en tant que partisans du futur Henri VII. Ce lignage disparut en 1732.
