I received a copy of an interesting article from J. Jackson published in the Connecticut Nutmegger on Which William Bassett is of New Haven. I greatly appreciated this. It first documents a William Bassett who came to the Plymouth Colony on the Ship Fortune in 1621. Then there was William Bassett who came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony and settled in Lynn MA in 1625. He likely knew my ancestor Nathaniel Turner who was still there then before going to New Haven in 1638. Then it listed William Bassett who first shows up in New Haven in 1642/43 and concludes that he was a different person from the others. I would certainly agree with that. The article gives a lot of useful context.
However, they list this William Bassett’s wife as Hannah Dickerman, widow of William Ives, with no proof that this was her name. Here is where I disagree. You can find out why in the series on her name.
