Slain at Evesham -------------------- "Lord of Drayton, co. Stafford, great-grandson of Richard Basset, justice of England, and his wife, Maud Ridel, had summons...to attend the king at Chester, well furnished with horse and arms, to oppose the incursions of the Welsh. But in the 48th of the same monarch, having joined Simon Montfort, Earl of Leicester, and other rebellious barons, he was appointed the next year, after the defeat of the king's arms at Lewes, and capture of the king, governor for those lords of the castles of Salopand Bruges. He fell, however, before the close of the same year, at the battle of Evesham. It is said that when the Earl of Leicester perceived the great force and order of the royal army, calculating upon defeat, he conjured Ralph Basset and Hugh Despencer to retire, and reserve themselves for better times; but they bravely answered, that if he perished, they would not desire to live.' Lord Basset m. Margaret, dau. of Roger de Someri, Baron of Dudley, and widow of Urban St. Pierre and had issue. I. Ralph, his successor. II. Maud, m. to John, Lord Grey deWilton." - Burke's "Dormant and Extinct Peerages," 1883. Ralph descends from Thurston the Norman who founded the family soon after the Conquest.
