"Thomas Bass" granted "manerium meum de Comptun cum terra de Berewic" to "Alano filio meo" by charter dated to [1180/82?], witnessed by "…Waltero de Dunstanvile, Alano de Dunstanvile, Fulcone Basset…Thoma Basset juvene…". "Thomas Basset", with the consent of "Gilleberti primogeni filii mei", granted "Cumtonam…cuius medietas fuit maritagium matris mee, altera…medietatis…fuit maritagium uxoris mee matris eorum" to "Alano filio meo fratri suo" by charter dated to [1180/82?], witnessed by "…Walterus de Dunstanvill, Alanus de Dunstanvill, Fulco Basset…Thomas Basset juvenis…" The Roll of Honour dated [1186/87] records that "Gilberto Basset…Alano Basset" held land in the honour of Walingford. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record that "Alanus Basset" held one knight fee "in Wokinges et Mapeldorwelle…ex dono Regis Ricardi" in Surrey, and one knight fee in Wycombe, Berkshire. This entry must be redated to after 1189 if it is correct that the knight fees were granted by King Richard I. King John confirmed that “Waltero de Dunstanvill” had granted the manor of Winterbourne to “Alan Basset”, under a charter confirmed by King Richard I, by charter dated 10 Apr 1200. The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Alanus Basset" holding "Berwike…de feodo Adæ de Port" and two knights’ fees "de honore Walingforde…in Wottone" in Wiltshire, and land "in Wokinges" in Surrey, in [1210/12]. A charter dated 1217 records that "Alanum Basset" granted the manor of Yarlington, Somerset to "Isobel quondam uxorem Willelmi de Monte Acuto" [as her dower] by charter dated 1217, witnessed by "Gilberto Basset, Warino Basset…" 1
