  General Notes:

THURSTAN Basset [I], son RALPH Basset & his wife --- (-after 1166). 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. Henry I King of England confirmed that he had granted "filiam Galfridi Ridel in uxorem" to "Ricardo Basset" by charter dated to [1120/23] witnessed by "…Roberti Basset et Osmundi Basset et Turstini Basset…". Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record "Nicholaus Basset, x milites, Gilbertus Basset, vii milites, Turstanus Basset, vi milites et ii partes milites…Osmundus Basset, i militem et quartam partem militis…Fulco Basset i militem" as feeholders in the honour of Wallingford in Berkshire.
