    The wills of Humphery Basse and Mary, his widow, were proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (registered 65 cope and 80 cope). He owned shares in the Virginia Company. He was a haberdasher and merchant of London.

    Humphrey's children, from 1589 to 1602 were baptized at the Church of Saint Gabriel, Fenchurch Street, London. The last entry in the Parish Registry refering to Humphrey Basse is the record of the burial of son Thomas on February 21, 1603.

    Beginning on June 30, 1605 we find the family of Humphrey Basse at Saint Helen's Church, Bishopgate, London with the baptism of "Barnaby son of Humphrey Basse, Gyrdler & Mary". Five more of Humphrey's children were Christened there and Mary is listed as their mother. The last of these being Sara on June 27, 1615. Humphrey was buried at Ste.

    Notes for MARY BUSCHIER:
    Notes For Mary Buschier: (The Basse Family Of Black Creek, North Carolina, compiled by James Albert Bass and James Albert Bass Jr., 1986)

    Mary Buschier was the daughter of Dominick Buschier, a native of Italy. He appears on several lists of aliens during the reign of Elizabeth the First. Dominick's wife, Jane (Genevieve), is listed as a native of "Roane" (Roanne, near Lyon) in France. The name Buschier is more French than Italian. This suggests that Dominick was from the north west Italy.

They immediately settled near the mouth of a creek on the south side of the James River still known as Lawne's Creek. Captain Nathaniel Basse and others undertook to establish another plantation in the same neighborhood. This plantation was known as Basse's Choice and was situated on the Pagan River. Nathaniel was back in England in early 1621/22 and returned to Virginia in 1622. He was commissioned to seek colonists for Virginia in New England and elsewhere.

    The houses of Captain Basse's plantation were being built when a great calamity happened to the infant colony. At midday on Good Friday, March 22, 1622 there were twelve hundred fourty British inhabitants in the state of Virginia. Of these, three hundred forty seven were killed by Indians in the eighty settlements on the north and south sides of the James River, of which fifty three were residents of this county (Isle Of Wight County). At the house of Nathaniel Basse every one was slain. Nathaniel, who was in England at the time, escaped.

    A muster of the inhabitants of Virginia taken in 1625 includes Nathaniel Basse, age 35. Nathaniel was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1624,1625, 1628 and again in 1629. He was a Councillor in 1630.

    Generation No. 3

    5. JOHN4 BASSE (NATHANIEL3, HUMPHREY2, WILLIAM1) was born September 7, 1616 in Middlesex Parrish, London, England, and died April 2, 1699 in Norfolk, Nansemond, Virginia. He married KEZIAH ELIZABETH TUCKER August 14, 1638 in Nasemond Indian Tribe, Virginia, daughter of ROBIN THE ELDER. She was born 1618 in Nansemond Indian Tribe, Virginia, and died December 4, 1676 in Norfolk, Nansemond, Virginia.

    Notes for JOHN BASSE:
    John Basse came as an infant with his mother and father to the New World of Virginia. Jamestown was founded in 1607, nine years before John was born. According to genealogist, Alyene Prenn, the story related to her by Justin Bass, at the time Chief of the Nanesemond Tribe, was that John was the only survivor at Basse's Choice of the Good Friday massacre in 1622. John's father, Nathaniel had returned to England as presumably had his mother since she died in England in 1630. John was rescued from the carnage by Nasemond Indians and was taken to raise by them. John married a Nansemond Indian girl with the unusal name, for an Indian, of Keziah Elizabeth Tucker. Keziah's father's name was Robin the Elder. He was the "King", or Chief (Weroance) of the Nansemonds. Keziah took the name Elizabeth at her baptism, a not unusual occurrence at the time.

    Intermarriage between Indians and whites were forbidden under Virginia law in the early 1690's. There were some migration across the line into North Carolina because of this law. John Basse may well have been one of the Virginians to have done so. The certificates indicate that John was certainly considered an Indian.

    John Basse's marriage to Love Harris in 1696 was probably the first time one of our Basse ancestors was married outside the Church of England (the present Episcopal Church in this country) since the time of William the Conqueror in AD 1066. John and Love were married by Magistrate Samuel Swann, Esq. Probably the same Samuel Swann that Swansborro was named.

    Good afternoon Brenda. May your day be blessed.
    I am descended from Guilford Bass and Polly Proctor. I was wondering if in your files you might have the true ancestors of Guilford Bass. Between on line and the Reservation they are saying two different things. The reservation in Virginia is saying he is descended through Edward and Mary Tucker Bass. Also if Jacob was married to Tabitha Bass daughter of Charles there is a connection. Any guideance from you would be appreciated.
    As the saying goes Either you are or you are not. Only the government puts a percentage on blood.

    Welcome if you are new here. I regret to inform you that we think that Brenda has passed away. She has not posted here for a great deal of time. Someone saw an obituary of her name that matched her birth date.

    Perhaps if you create a new thread in the genealogy thread and post your question and information, Bill will be able to help you.

    Basses in 1757-1758 NC Grantor/Grantee Indexes

    It's good to have you here Genieseeker.

    I will add this file I ran across just today while researching Goldsberrys in NC where the Andrew Bass mentioned numerous times in Brenda’s post here sold land to an Edward Goldsberry in 1757 or 1759. Richard Bass is also listed in this file.

    If anyone was able to get the full msword doc from brenda of bass families of blackcreek I would like to have it my email is mercury7@gmail.com

    it was my direct family that commission the Bass families of the south book by bell back in 1961 and so I am making an effort to make copies for my children nieces and nephews. I know the black creek book was used along side our book for at least one close relative to be admitted to the nansemond indian tribe Their are errors in the bell book supposedly and so basically the more you have the more correct the record. anyway I copied what brenda had posted here but would like to have the whole 159 pages if anyone has it.
