Immediately after the Norman Conquest arose into power and
distinction, more especially in the midland counties, the great
Baronial family of Basset.

Ralph Basset was chief justice of England under King Henry I.
and hence sprung the Lords Basset of Drayton ; the Lords Basset
of Hndendon ; and the Lords Basset of 5o/)co/e and JFeldon; with
the Bassets of B lore, and many other branches j of whom an ac-
count may be found in Dugdale's Baronage j or in the Topo-
grapher, vol. ii. p. 318, &:c.

Thomas Basset, a very early cadet of this family,^- married
Cicely, daughter and heiress of Alan Lord de Dunstanvillc, ma-
ternally descended from Retjinald Fitzhenry, Earl of Cornwall,
natural son of King Henry I. by Anne Corbet, ^'

Sir William Pole' however deduces the descent thus :

Osmond Basset, who held Ipisden and Stuke-Basset, in King
Henry I's time, was father of ■

John Basset, who had issue

William Basset, who by Ciceley, daughter of Alan de En-
glefield, was father of

from those of Hedendon ; viz. Barry wavy o/"6, or and gules : instead of Barry

c Description of Devon.


Sir Alan Basset, who had given him by Sir William Pevere],
of Samford in Devonshire, White-Chapple and La Heyna, in the
parish of Byshop's Nymton, in the north part of the county, with
Lucia, his sister, in marriage.

Sir William Basset, in the reign of King Henry VIIL was
father of

Sir John Basset, of Umberlegh com. Devon, Knt. who mar-
ried Joan, daughter of Sir Thomas Beaumont, and sister and
heir of Philip Beaumont, of Shirwell in that county ; who brought
into this family two noble seats in that county j Umlerle^h and
Heanton Court. " Umberlegh lies in the parish of Adrington,
seven miles to the south of Barnstaple, and is so called from the
abundance of woods which heretofore were round about it, and
did overshadow it. Here this family had its first residence after
it became theirs; but it being the more melancholy and less
healthful place, they removed hence to Heanton Coukt, which
came from Punchardon to Beaumont; and from Beaumont to
Basset ; a sweet and pleasant seat, a very handsome pile, well
furnished wich all variety of entertainments which the earth and
sea and air can afford." "^

Sir John had issue by Joan Beaumont, viz.

Sir John Basset, eldest son, of Umberlegh corrl. Devon, mar-
ried, first, Elizabeth, daughter of John De nys, by whom he had
an only child, Anne, married to James, son of Sir William Court-
ney, of Powderham, Knt. Sir John married, secondly, Honora,
daughter of Sir Thomas Granville, who sur\'ived him, and re-
married Arthur Plantagenet, Viscount Lis'e. By this second wife
Sir John Basket, who died January 31st, 1528, had two sons.

First, John, of whom presently.

Second, George, of Tehidy, of whom afterwards, as ancestor
to the present peer.

John Basset, eldest son, of Umberlegh com. Devon, mar-
ried Frances, daughter and coheir of the above Arthur Planta-
genet, Viscount Lisle, bastard son of King Edward IV. who
surviving him, remarried Thomas IVIonke, of Potheridge com.
Devon, Esq. and was great grandmother of the famous George
Monke, Duke of Alberraarle. By her be had issue Sir Arthur
Basset, of Umberlegh, only son and heir, who married Eleanor,
daughter of Sir John Chichester, of Raleigh, Knt. and had issue
Sir Robert Basset, of Umberlegh, Knt. living 1620, " who

being thus by his grandmother descended from the Plantagencts,
^ittcted to make some pretensions to the crown of England, but
not being able to make them good, was forced to fly into France
to save his head. '^ To compound for which, together with his
high and generous way of hving. Sir Robert greatly exhausted
his estate, selling off with White Chappie, the ancient house, no
less than thirty manors." ^ He married Elizabeth, second daughter
and coheir of Sir William Periam, Chief Baron of the Exchequer,
by whom he was father of Colonel Arthur Basset, born at
Heanton Court, I5g7,= aa active loyalistj of whom a memoir is
given in Prince's Worthies of Devon, (p. 51, edit. 1810). He
died January /th, I672, aet. seventy five. His descendant and
last heir male, Francis Basset of Heanton-Court, Esq. died
about fifteen years ago ; and Mr. Davie, his nephew, and heir by
the female line, has taken the name and arms of Basset.

We now return to George Basset, younger son of Sir John
Basset and Honora Granville. He had a gift from his nephew
Sir Arthur of the manor of Tehidy in Cornwall, to him and his
heirs, as appears by a conveyance dated March 26th, 1558, in
these words, " to the use and lehoof of Dame Honor, Viscountess
Ziisle, mother of the said George, and grandmether to the said Ar-
thur, and her assigns for the term of her life natural, and after her
decease then and from thence first to the vse of the said George
Basset and Jacquet his wife, and to the heirs male of the body of
the said George laufuUy begotten, and in default to the use and
behoof" &c. It appears from Leland, that the Bassets resided at
Tehidy before this :''

** Basset," says he, " hath a right goodly lordship, called
Treheddy, by Combe Castelle." And again :

" Carnbrny, on an hill, a castelet, or pile of Bassets, a mile
west of the Revier toun. There was sometime a park now de-
faced." '

This George Basset married Jacquetta, daughter of George
Coffin, of Portledge in Devonshire, and dying November 5lh,
1589, W3S buried at Illagan in Cornwall. He left issue a son and
two daughters.

e One Nicholas Hill was concerned in this conspiracy. See Wood's

Sir Fraxcis Basset, of Tehidy, eldest son, was also a strenuous
royalist, and sheriff of Cornwall during the greater part of the
rebellion. Owing to his expenses in support of the royal cause,
and his being obliged to compound for his estate with the parlia-
ment, he was necessitated to sell his seat at St. Michael's Mount
in Cornwall, and much other property : on which account his de-
scendants were much distressed for many years after the rebel-
lion, till by marriages and skilful management they again aug-
mented their estates.

Sir Francis died September IQth, 1645, having married Anne,
daughter of Sir Jonathan Trelawney, of Trelawney, Knight, who
