John Bassett was a shoreman who moved from Lynn to Marblehead early in his adult life. He named his surviving children in his will written 16 Jan 1635 when he was "weak in body," The will was administered 9 Feb 1736. His wife survived him, and he named his children: John, William, and Michael Bassett and daughters: Sarah Fortune, Merriam Fryar, Deborah Andrews, Abigail Andrews, and Hannah Pearce. Son William did not survive him, and his portion went to his heirs.
Genealogical publishings and probate material are our best proof of relationship for the Bassetts.
The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.
The research on this family is mostly complete. Perhaps one day, the families of John Sr.'s wife, Mary, and John Jr.'s wife Charity Curtis, may be found as well as the identity of Abigail's husband.
