  • Notes 
    • "Radulfus Basset filius Ricardi Basset" confirmed the donation of "terram de Niwebold…de feodo de Colestona" to Eynsham abbey made by "Radulfus Basset auus meus" by charter dated to [1144/63], witnessed by "Ricardus abbas Legrec, Robertus frater eius, Adel uxor mea, Thomas de Sais et Willelmus et Robertus filii eius…" "Galfridus Ridel" granted Colston "de feodo meo quæ fuit Gevæ Ridel avæ nostræ…Draituna", which "Radulfus Basset avus meus et Ricardus Basset pater noster" had granted, to "Radulfo Basset fratri meo", as well as other grants naming "Matildis Ridel matris meæ", by charter dated to [1150]. Henry II King of England confirmed the property of Eynsham abbey, including the donations by "Gisleberti Basset decimam de Stratona…Radulfi Basset decimam…de Estlaia" by charter dated 20 Dec [1159/61][368]. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record that "Radulfus Basset" used to hold one knight´s fee from the abbot of Glastonbury in Somerset "tempore Regis Henrici" (presumably indicating King Henry I) now held by "hæres Radulfi Basset junioris". The 1163/64 Pipe Roll records that "Wills Basset…ipsi Willo" made payment "p debito Rad fris sui" in Leicestershire.
