John Basset

John Basset. [Our Basset Ancestors], [Familytree].
Born (about 1260-S4)(about 1280)(in 1318-S3), of Cheadle, Staffordshire, England.

He is said by some to be the son of Ralph Basset and Margaret de Somery. However, that Ralph Basset is said to have died in 1265 at the Battle of Evesham. This would preclude him from being the father of John, who was thought to be born about 1280.
The Basset Family Association (S3) indicates that he is the son of Ralph Basset of Cheadle, who was also the son of Ralph Basset of Cheadle. (S3). This Ralph Basset fits within the timeframe of John. For convenience, I will call them Ralph II of Cheadle and Ralph I of Cheadle.

He inherited the estates of his nephew who died without any other heirs. (S3).
