Research

William Bassett the Pauper is the father of the 9 children based on the following:-
Reason 1 - there are no other children born to a William Bassett in Madron between 1770 and 1820 other than the above 9 children.
Reason 2 - In all cases except for the first child the father is identified as a pauper
Reason 3 - other than for the first two children there is a regular 2 years gap between the births of his children.

Who William Bassett was married to is unknown, originally it was thought that his wife was Jane Mathews who married a William Bassett on the 13 September 1783 in the Madron parish church. However recent DNA testing shows that although Jane Matthews is related to the family, the connection is further back. Unfortunately, I have not been given access to actual data although a copy has been promised.

No more info is currently available for William Bassett. Can you add to his biography?

The male descendants of William Bassett & Jane Matthews have been a lot easier to follow up.

I would like to discover what happened to the follwoing female children who were all baptised in the Madron parish church. 1. Anne Basset christened 1784 2. Mary Basset christened 1792 3. Hanna Bassett christened 1798 I also haven’t been able to trace the burials and/or deaths of either William Bassett or Jane Bassett nee Matthews who could have both possibly been born around 1762. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Sandra
