About Hannah Bassett

Note SHE DID NOT MARRY William Bassett of Sandwich. He married Elizabeth MNU.



Hannah Dickerman was born about 1622. She is the daughter of Thomas and Eleanor (Ellen) (Whittington) Dickerman. She married William Ives. Their first child was born when she was 18. Her husband died when she was 26, in April, 1648.

Her second marriage was to William Bassett in New Haven Colony on Tuesday, November 7, 1648. She took the name Hannah Bassett. They had three children:

i. Hannah Bassett was born in New Haven Colony on September 13, 1650, baptized in New Haven Colony on September 15, 1650, and died in Waterford, Connecticut, on June 7, 1726. She married John Parker., son of Edward Parker and Elizabeth Potter (widow of John Potter).

ii. John Bassett was born in New Haven Colony on December 24, 1652, and died in Haven, Connecticut Colony. He married Mercy Todd, daughter of Christopher and Grace (Middlebrook) Todd.

iii. Samuel Bassett was born in New Haven Colony on February 15, 1654, and died in New Haven, Connecticut Colony, on April 8, 1716. On June 21, 1677, in New Haven, he married Mary Dickerman, daughter of Abraham and Mary (Cooper) Dickerman.

link to grave ~MY ANCESTOR~

There is a controversy about the surname of William Ive's wife, HANNAH. I believe that she was the daughter of my ancestors, THOMAS & ELLEN (WHITTINGTON) DICKERMAN, who immigrated to Boston/Dorchester. The reason that I believe this is because William Bassett, Hannah's second husband, names Abraham Dickerman and John Cooper, Sr. as his "brothers" in his will. If Hannah was the daughter of Thomas & Ellen Dickerman, ABRAM DICKERMAN would have been her brother and JOHN COOPER, Sr. her brother-in-law, and both would have been William Bassett's brothers-in-law. In those days, the term "brothers" covered brothers-in-law.

She married first WILLIAM IVES (my ancestor) on June 14, 1639. He died in 1648, and she married second, William Bassett the same year (on Nov. 7, 1648).
