  General Notes:

RICHARD Basset (-after 1210). His parentage is confirmed by the Chronicle of Abingdon which records that "Turstinus" [=Thurstan Le Despencer] donated "ecclesiam de Mercham" to "cuidam ex regis clericis (Radulfo…de Tamewrtha)", after recording the dispute between Thurstan and Abingdon monastery concerning that church, and in a later passage that [his son] "Ricardus itaque Basset (filius Turstini filii Radulfi prædicti" revived the claim against the monastery "cum patre mortuo" relating to "terræ de Chedeleswrtha" which was settled. The 1176/77 Pipe Roll names "Ricardus Basset et Turstinus filius eius" in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Ricardus Basset" paying "vii l x s, xv milites" in Northamptonshire. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], records that "Ricardus Basset" paid "xv l, xv milites" in Northamptonshire.
