  Research Notes:

Malcolm IV King of Scotland donated “villam P[iddington] in Oxenfordscire” to Oxford St. Frideswide, noting that “Iohanna...soror Thome Bassett” was tenant for life, by charter dated to [1159]. King Henry II confirmed the donation of “villam de Pydentona in Oxenfordscira” to Oxford St. Frideswide made by King Malcolm IV, noting “Iohanna soror Thome Bassett” as tenant for life, by charter dated to [1160]. William Reedy, in the introduction to his collection of Basset charters, states that Joan, sister of Thomas Basset, married Aubry de Dammartin as her third husband. The identity of Joan’s third husband as Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin is indicated by his later holding of Piddington in Oxfordshire which the documents quoted here show was held by Joan Basset. The third husband of Joan Basset could not have been Aubry [I], father of Comte Aubry [II], as her husband was called “comes” in these documents. If this suggested identity is correct, Joan must have died soon after [1160]. Joan’s first marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1160] under which the abbot of Missenden surrendered rights in Piddington, donated by “Albrici comitis de Damartyn & Iohane de Pidingtona, que fuit sponsa Guidonis de Riala”, to Oxford St. Frideswide. The primary source which confirms Joan’s second marriage has not been identified. "Aubri Count of Dammartin" confirmed the grant of Musewell to Missenden abbey made by “Guy and Joan de Ryhale”, with the consent of “his son and heir Renaud”, by charter dated to [1175]. 1
