Henry II King of England confirmed the property of Eynsham abbey, including the donations by "Gisleberti Basset decimam de Stratona…Radulfi Basset decimam…de Estlaia" by charter dated 20 Dec [1159/61]. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record that "Radulfus Basset" used to hold one knight’s fee from the abbot of Glastonbury in Somerset "tempore Regis Henrici" (presumably indicating King Henry I) now held by "hæres Radulfi Basset junioris". The 1163/64 Pipe Roll records that "Wills Basset…ipsi Willo" made payment "p debito Rad fris sui" in Leicestershire.
