Virg'a

This doth certify that William Bass, son of John Bass and grandson of

William Bass, is of English and Indian descent and is not a Negroe nor

y't a Mulattoe as by some lately and malitiously stated. His late Mother

Sarah Ann Bass was a virtuous woman of Indian descent, a daughter of

Symon Lorina and Joan Tucker lawfully begotten. Sd Joan Tucker was a

sister of Robin Tucker a Christian Indian of ye Nansemund nation.

Ye sd William Bass, ye elder, was a son of Mary Bass and William Bass,

Senr. Mary Bass was a daughter of Great Peter, King of ye Nansemunds.

These are of common knowledge.

All of the Basses of this County descend from Capt'n Nathaniell Basse,

as satisfactorally proved by the records preserved

Humphrey and Mary had a son, Nathaniel Basse, who was born in London in 1589. He was married to Mary Jourdan who was born circa 1595. They had a son, John Basse, who was born in 1616 in London. He is the one who came to America and settled in the Virginia Colony. There he met and married Keziah Elizabeth Tucker (1620-1676), the daughter of Elder Robin Tucker, Chief of the Nansemond Tribe.
