About Lucia Basset

I cannot find a link between the Bassets and Peverells to a Lucia and will be detaching this profile from these links. Should some reliable sources be brought forward I can revert these changes and reconnect her as d/o Sir Hugh Perverell, and wife of Alan de Basset Lord of Wycombe.


  • Tehidy Country Park is located on the west coast of Cornwall, England, UK, about 2 miles north of Camborne, 2 miles west of Redruth, and about 1 mile south of the small harbour of Portreath. It was once part of an ancient manor owned by the Basset family which later gained much wealth from local tin mining.
