Design rationale for the Arms of Kenneth Eugene Aberle

The arms were designed by Dr. David Pittman Johnson and Artist Dr. Robert Bray Wingate of the American College of Heraldry. The single black lion on the field of gold is meant to say that the family is descended from those from Swabia . The lion's second role is in the form of a canting charge for the family name Aberle. The lion is a traditional noble device. The book Heraldry Sources and Meanings by Ottofried Neubecker mentions, on page 110 that the lion is a symbol of strength, agility, and in fables, he is described as being noble, and king of beasts. The family was by tradition Lutheran in Faith. (Johann Georg Aberle was a judge of the Ecclesiastical Court at Schwanenbach Hornberg, Baden until his death on the 14th of January 1787). The prior information was provided by Trudy Schenk an Accredited Genealogist specializing in Germanic research.This information was taken from the LDS, FHL M.F. #1,189,849 from Evangelical Lutheran Parish registry at Hornberg, Baden.The upper portion of the shield reflects the color from the sleeve on the crest which brightens the design. The two golden coins allude to Kenneth Eugene Aberle’s profession as a buyer and his work in purchasing. The sprig of six leaves symbolically says "I am the stem and I have six fine children who are living extensions of the family." The crest shows his arm raising the family banner as the originator of the family coat of arms. The arm is vested in murray and gold which represent the colors of his alma mater, The University of Minnesota. The motto is taken from Proverbs 23:23, "Buy Truth and Sell It Not," which means to seek knowledge or truth and not to forsake it. The arms began as a petition to the College as a Father’s Day gift in the spring of 1985.

Design Rationale for the Arms of Hannah Marie Anderson nee Flyckt

The arms are synthesis of the arms of (Vaster Gotaland) Sweden without the stars above and below the lion as a difference, along with the lion being (winged argent/silver), as a cant on the surname of Flyckt, or Flykte, which is Norwegian in origin, meaning, "to escape, flee, or fly" With a reversal of metal and tiniture. The long staved cross, and Axe of Sor Trondelag, Norway being held by the lion.

Crest: a bridge supporting a church, both of silver, bearing a Luther Rose.

Motto: in Norwegian "Christ is the Bridge between GOD and Man" on a double escrol.

Hannah spoke Norwegian prior to her early education.

Design rationale for the arms of Albert E. Anderson

The arms are a synthesis of Albert E. Anderson's regimental arms. The field of blue is for the Infantry. The broken chevron commemorates the piercing of the German line between Soissons and Rheims , which are represented by the silver and golden fleurs-de-lis taken from the coat of arms of those cities respectively. The arms of his father's birthplace (Medelpad) and a St. Andrew's cross denote his Christian faith and is a cant of the surname Anderson . The crest is a garb, representing the history of farming in the family, and the Luther Rose representing his religious denomination. The Motto is in Norwegian, as it reflects both Albert's maternal origin as well as his initial spoken language prior to his early education.

The triplets followed: Lillian Linnea, Lulu E, and Lela L, on 19, October, 1900. John and Anna had another daughter, Genevieve, she died young.

The children were all raised in the Presbyterian tradition, and attended school in Worthington .

John Erick Carlson was admitted as a citizen of the United States of America at Worthington, Nobles County , MN on 10, November, 1897.

John decided to move the family to Minneapolis, MN between 1915 and 1916, to better position himself to obtain building orders, material, and supplies, as Minneapolis had grown into a main river and rail center for transport to support Minneapolis 's role as a national milling center.

The younger children graduated from West high School in south Minneapolis .

When the United States entered the First World War, both sons entered the service. Elmer was stationed in England, where he worked on air plane maintenance for the Army Air Corps. Clifford was placed in the Army Signal Corps, and was deployed to the front in France. Previously, Elmer followed in the Carpenter and Millwright trade under Johns training Clifford did for a time, however he switched to attend formal training in Music while working as a sign painter.

John was working on a grain elevator up in Crookston, MN where he died on 8, July 1919. He was laid to rest at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis . Anna followed in death at Minneapolis on 15 September, 1931, and was laid to rest next to John.

Design rationale for the arms of (Nanny) Lillian Linnea Aberle nee Carlson

the lower portion of the shield is a visual play on a grain elevator. The upper Portion symbolizes what a tradesman would carry, the tools of his trade in as a Carpenter/Millwright. Color/Metal refers to the arms of the old country ( Sweden ). The crest refers to her maternal place of origin (Wikmans from Pitea Norbotten). the colors conform to the shield as a difference from the civic arms of Pitea.

The motto: "Life Is What You Make of It", this was one of Lillian’s favorite sayings.

(fn. 69) He was appointed in 1307 and 1313 to collect a twentieth and a fifteenth in Rutland, and served on various commissions and offices mostly relating to Rutland. (fn. 70) In 1313 John and Peter Bassett were accused of assaulting Robert de Glaston at North Luffenham. (fn. 71) These may be the John and Peter Bassett who were tenants of Thomas la Zouche at North Luffenham in 1345 and perhaps sons of John.

(fn. 74) The name of John Bassett of North Luffenham occurs in the list of the gentry of Rutland in 1434, who swore not to maintain peace breakers. (fn. 75) John Bassett was lord of this manor in 1498. (fn. 76) He left a son Nicholas, who married Katherine daughter of Lawrence Awnell. (fn. 77) By an undated complaint before the Star Chamber in the time of Henry VIII Anthony Bassett of North Luffenham accused Simon Digby and others of assaulting him in the house of William Islip of North Luffenham. (fn. 78) Thomas, son of Nicholas Bassett, died in 1532 holding the manor of North Luffenham which had been settled on him and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of William Bewfo, (fn. 79) in 1525. He also held land and a water mill in South Luffenham, and a horse mill in North Luffenham. His son Edward, then aged 24, who succeeded him, (fn. 80) died childless in 1534, and John his brother succeeded to the manor. (fn. 81) John married Anne, daughter of Thomas Rouse of Rowslinch (co. Worc.), (fn. 82) and in 1545 he and his wife conveyed a water mill and land in North and South Luffenham to John Wymark. (fn. 83) In 1569 the manor was settled on John and Anne in tail male.

Harriet died on the 23rd day of November 1841. There is a discrepancy in the 1850 U.S federal census regarding the birth place of Fredrick .

Charles and Sarah Anne Dennis were married in New York State in 1852. They headed west in 1853 from Broome county, NY, according to the Hopkins City Historical Society, arriving in the Minnesota territory in May of 1854. His wife Sarah Anne Dennis was the daughter of Oliver H. Dennis who was a blacksmith born in the state of CT, in 1810. He later settled at Wayzata, MN, where he died on 19, November, 1872.

Sarah Anne Dennis was born in September of 1834 at Otsego, Otsego, New York. Charles and Sarah had some harrowing experiences with the Indians. They made a practice of entering the cabin and taking any bread they found there. One day when they tracked up her newly scrubbed floor, Mrs. Bassett, her patience exhausted, seized a butcher knife and chased them out. However when news of the Sioux uprising reached Hopkins in 1862, Mrs Bassett did not rely on her butcher knife. Instead,the Bassett family, along with other early settlers sought refuge for the night in the home of the Hopkins family which was then the most substantial structure in the settlement at that time. The next day the party fled to Minneapolis where they remained for two days before venturing to return to their homes.

Charles and Sarah Anne Bassett were charter members of the Mizpah Congregational church at Hopkins, MN, where Anne Mabel Bassett played the organ.

Design rationale for the arms of Charles Bassett and Sarah Anne Bassett nee Dennis

The shield contains the basic ancient metal of gold and color red of the Bassetts. The three piles meeting in the base are reminiscent of the Ridel /Ridell arms. The canton was changed to reflect the locality of Bassett manor near the River Chater

The crest is the image of Sarah Anne Bassett nee Dennis as a pioneer woman at what is now know as Hopkins, Minnesota. This is intended to recall her fearless response to an adverse frontier which is mentioned in the Seventh Generation of the Bassett family in America. The crest also is meant to show a new chapter in the familys story.

John Dann and Mary McPherson John Dann, the father of Margret Dann, was a weaver and farmer born at Coolrain, Offerlane, Parish County , Laois , Ireland , on 29 August, 1792.

The paternal grandfather of Margaret Dann, John Dann, was born at Mary Borough, Queens County, Ireland in 1745/1746. He married Ann Benn, who was born at Coolrain, Offerlane Parish, in 1752. John Dann and Ann Benn were married at Coolrain on 20 November, 1774. John Dann was a weaver farmer, and parish clerk. John died at Coolrain on 7 August, 1823 at the age of 77.

He married Mary Logan on 13 August, 1804 in Renfrewshire Scotland. She was also born at Paisley , Scotland on 8 August, 1784.

John Alexander McPherson died at Troy, New York, on 9 October, 1860. Mary, his wife, followed in death, also at Troy , New York on 4 April, 1874.

Margaret Dann was born at New Hartford, New York on 28 May, 1828 and baptized at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at Utica, New York on 9 April, 1830 (according to D.A.R. records of Oneida chapter Volume 6, page 20, Utica Library). However, by this same record, lists her date of birth as being 20 May, 1829. The family later moved to the newly purchased Dann farm at Hillsborough, Camden, New York, where she was raised and later left to live and work at Utica, where she was, according to Robert Dann, living in a boarding house, Millner House, at Mrs. Maynard’s in 1854, based on the 1854 city directory of Utica, New York.

John Alexander McPherson and family also arrived from Europe in 1819. Landing at Montreal, Canada, crossing into New York State. They settled on five acres in the area known as Slatenbush, in the town of New Hartford , where John Alexander McPherson ran a small farm and wove in his shop. This is where John Dann worked for John Alexander McPherson and where he met Mary McPherson, whom he later married on 17 January, 1824. They both wove together to help pay expenses.

They rented a house on the turn pike road between Utica and New Hartford. Later they purchased a farm at Hillsborough in the town of Camden , New York , consisting of 140 acres, which they moved to in the spring of 1832.

The children born to John Dann and Mary McPherson were 12 in all, four of which were born at New Hartford, Johnathan, Mary Ann, Margaret, John Alden, and William Francis. The remaining children were born at the farm in Hillsborough Camden , New York : Isaac, Newton, Robert, Jesse W., Thomas M., Edward H., Carlott Melissa, and Esther Julia.

Mary later sold the house at Camden and moved to New Haven Connecticut to live with her sons until she died on 12 April, 1887. She was buried at Fair Haven Cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut.

John Dann, the father of John Dann's grandfather, one of three brothers, was said to have arrived from Holland , landing in the British Isles in 1689, amongst the army of Prince William of Orange , under Shomberg that fought at the battle of the Boyne on 1, July, 1690.

Ann Benn's family was said to have been of Dutch Quaker descent. They arrived in Ireland in 1650.

Mary Logan was the maternal grandmother of Margret Dann, and daughter of a herring fisherman. One day, her father went out to fish off the western Scottish coast. His boat was later found, bottom side up, his wife and children never saw him again. This information, in part, was sent to me from Robert T. Dann. A greater portion was pened by William Frances Dann in 1895. The Aberle family had two copies, however, a broken marriage and fire cancelled out both. These arms are meant to honor these men in their efforts in preserving this family’s story

Aberle Surname:
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches and loving favor rather than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1)

The Aberle surname is explained in the Dictionary of German Names by Hans Bahlow translated by Edda Gentry (for the Max Kade Institute for German American studies University of Wisconsin-Madison 1993). The Aberle surname on page 2 is as follows: "Aberle, Aberlin is the Swab.-Alem. Short form for Abrecht or Albrecht e.g, Aberlin." The book, A Dictionary of Surnames, by Patrick Hanks and Flavia Hodges mentions on page seven that the ABERLE name is derived from the first name, (Albrecht-Albert) meaning "noble," "bright," and "famous" (Adal being the root meaning "noble"). Spelling variations are ABERLIN, ABERLEN, and ABERLEE. -Lin, -len, -le, and -lee act as a diminutive meaning "little" or "small."

1GGFather (eighth generation): Mathias Aberlee/Matthias Aberlen was born at Tennenbronn- Villigen, Baden, on the 22nd and Baptized on the 27th day of September, 1829. Mathias arrived in America approximately 1849-1850 according to the 1900, U.S. Federal Census; which stated 1850 in the 1910. It recounted his arrival in 1849. Mathias was the husband of Margaret Dann, the daughter of John Dann, who was a weaver and farmer. He was born at Coolrain, Offerlane, Parish, County, Laois, Ireland, of Dutch parentage. Margaret’s mother, Mary MacPherson/McPherson, was from Cambuslang, Renfrew, Scotland. Margaret Dann was born at New Hartford, New York on 28 May, 1828. Matthias and Margaret married on 23 December, 1856. Mathias was a store clerk in a dry goods and provisions store owned by Clough, Merriam, and Tucker, at Dubuque, IA from 1858-1869. At Dubuque, IA on 22 October, 1861 Mathias agreed to provide for and train, or educate, Josephine Sheldon under a mutual obligation of service, as it was stated in their contract or covenant, which was entered into before the County Court at Dubuque, Dubuque County Iowa. Sarah Anne Sheldon acted on her daughter’s Josephine Sheldon’s behalf to be bound as a servant girl for ten years until she reached her maturity of twenty one years of age on 1 April, 1872. Josephine however was not included as a member of this household in the 1870 U.S. Federal Census. Mathias was farming from 1869-1881 While living at West Eau Claire, Mathias was issued a land patent from the U.S. government land office at Eau Claire, WI In exchange for a cash payment for 40 acres of land (Document #3581, in Hubbard Twp, Rusk County, WI). Mathias and Margaret also acquired 200 acres of land in Chippewa county WI, according to the entry of Deeds at Gates Vol.13 page 425 of Deeds, CCR. 8 January 1872. We have no documentation of the family actually living on either of these properties. The family's letter of transfer of church membership from the first Baptist Church of Eau Claire was from the duration of 30 September, 1869 to 1 May, 1879. The information provided in the 1870 U.S. Federal Census for West Eau Claire Twp, Eau Claire County, WI mentioned Mathias and family was still engaged in the livelihood of farming. The family continued to farm after they relocated to the State of Iowa, to Floyd Twp, Floyd County. In the 1880 U.S. Federal Census it mentioned Margaret’s medical status as being ill for some period of time. This may very well be the cause of the family’s hardship. Mathias and Margaret lost their farm of 80 acres at Floyd Twp. That they had purchased according to the information taken from the Floyd County Auditor’s office at Charles City, Iowa, which is mentioned in book #25-97-17. The Aberlee farm was sold by Sheriff's auction on 15 March, 1881. The family was later living at Minneapolis; Mathias worked as a Wood-Fuel dealer/Teamster at Minneapolis, according to the Minneapolis City Directory for the years 1883-91. The 1900 U.S. Federal Census stated that he was still engaged as a teamster; however, he retired shortly there after, as he was no longer found in any available resource. Mathias and Margaret later moved to West Minnetonka Twp, later known as West Minneapolis, and lastly as the City of Hopkins where he was listed in the 1905 MN state or territorial census as a land lord. Based on the 1910 U.S. Federal Census for Minneapolis, Mathias and Margaret returned to Minneapolis, where he later died at the Minneapolis City Hospital on 9 February, 1915, at the age of 85.

Design rationale
Every man of the children of Is-ra-el shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father’s house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch. (Numbers 2:2)


The arms were designed by Dr. David Pittman Johnson and Artist Dr. Robert Bray Wingate of the American College of Heraldry. The single black lion on the field of gold is meant to say that the family is descended from those from the Swabian tribal, or stem Duchy. According to the book the Black Forest Its People and Legends:(1885) By Lisbeth Gooch Seguin on page 37, the Suabian dwelt in the western portion of the Black Forest having their own special dialect. The Swabian tribal table of origin as follows: (http://www.osterholm.info/swedes.html History and Origins of The Swedes and Sweden" page 5) and http://www.osterholm.info/thracian..html;Thracians Ancestors of the Swedes; page 2 ) Schwaben,Suebi,Suevi,Suevic, Tribe Aesar, clan Suevi) ,Aes,Trojan,Troi,Thracian,Thirasian,Tarusha. Biblical lineage: Ti'ras, son of Ja'pheth, son of "Noe, son of La'mech, son of Ma-th'u-sala, son of E'noch, son of Ja'red, son of Ma-le'le-el, son of Ca-i'nan, son of E'nos, son of Seth, son of Ad'am, son of God.(Luke 3:36-38) The lion's second role is in the form of a canting charge for the family name Aberle. The lion is a traditional noble device. The book Heraldry Sources and Meanings by Ottofried Neubecker mentions on page 110 that the lion is a symbol of strength, agility, and in fables, he is described as being noble, and king of beasts. The family was by tradition Lutheran in Faith. (Johann Georg Aberle was a judge of the Ecclesiastical Court at Schwanenbach, Hornberg, Baden, until his death on the 14th, day of January, 1787). The prior information was provided by Trudy Schenk an Accredited Genealogist specializing in Germanic research. This information was taken from the LDS, FHL M.F. #1,189,849 from the Evangelical Lutheran Parish registry at Hornberg, Baden. The upper portion of the shield reflects the color from the sleeve on the crest which brightens the design. The two golden coins allude to Kenneth Eugene Aberle’s profession as a buyer and his work in purchasing. The sprig of six leaves symbolically says "I am the stem and I have six fine children who are living extensions of the family." The crest shows his arm raising the family banner as the originator of the family coat of arms. The arm is vested in Murray and gold which represent the colors of his alma mater, The University of Minnesota which his father Erwin Bassett Aberle had attended prior to Kenneth. Coincidentally Johann Adam Aberle served as a soldier in the Badische Infantry Regiment von Neuenstein in 1825. The arms of the Grand Duchy Baden consisted of gold/yellow and red as well. The motto is taken from Proverbs 23:23, "Buy Truth and Sell It Not," which means to seek knowledge or truth and not to forsake it. The arms began as a petition to the College as a Father’s Day gift in the spring of 1985.Registered by

daughter, Genevieve, she died young. Her loss must have been very painful; little has been mentioned concerning her. The children were all raised in the Presbyterian tradition, and attended school at Worthington. On the 4th day of June 1915, at Worthington, MN, Lillian Linnea Carlson was recognized by the Superintendent of Schools for District#5, for perfect attendance and punctuality, which was stated on her award certificate.

John Erick Carlson was admitted as a citizen of the United States of America at Worthington, Nobles County, MN on 10 November, 1897. John decided to move the family to Minneapolis, MN between 1915 and 1916, to better position himself to obtain building orders, material, and supplies, as Minneapolis had grown into a main river and rail center for transport to support Minneapolis's role as a national
milling center. The younger children graduated from West High School in south Minneapolis.

When the United States entered the First World War, both sons entered the service. Elmer was stationed in England, where he worked on air plane maintenance for the Army Air Corps. Clifford was placed in the Army Signal Corps, and was deployed to the front in France. Previously, Elmer followed in the Carpenter and Millwright trade under John’s training Clifford did for a time; however he switched to attend formal training in Music while working as a sign painter.

John was working on a grain elevator up in Crookston, MN where he died on 8 July 1919. He was laid to rest at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis. Anna followed in death at Minneapolis on 15 September, 1931, and was laid to rest next to John.

Color/Metal refers to the arms of the old country (Sweden). The crest refers to her maternal place of origin (Wikmans from Pitea Norbotten).

Harriet died on the 23rd day of November, 1841. There is a discrepancy in the 1850 U.S. federal census regarding the birth place of Fredrick.

Charles and Sarah Anne Dennis were married in New York State in 1852. They headed west in 1853 from Broome county NY, according to the Hopkins City Historical Society, arriving in the Minnesota territory in May of 1854. His wife, Sarah Anne Dennis, was the daughter of Oliver H. Dennis, who was a blacksmith, born in the state of CT in 1810. He later settled at Wayzata, MN, where he died on 19, November, 1872.

One day when they tracked up her newly scrubbed floor, Mrs. Bassett, her patience exhausted, seized a butcher knife and chased them out. However, when news of the Sioux uprising reached Hopkins in 1862, Mrs. Bassett did not rely on her butcher knife. Instead, the Bassett family, along with other early settlers, sought refuge for the night in the home of the Hopkins family, which was the most substantial structure in the settlement at that time. The next day the party fled to Minneapolis, where they remained for two days before venturing to return to their homes.

Notes:

Court records from New Haven Colony concerning Dr. William Bassett by Bill Ives
Dr. William Bassett was born in1620 in England, and died on Aug. 29, 1684 in New Haven. Much has been written about him. He was a medical doctor and married the widow of William Ives on Nov 7, 1648 in New Haven, after William Ives died in May 1648. William Bassett was not one of the original New Haven founders in 1639 and first appears in the New Haven court records on March 7, 1643 when he was fined 6 pence along with several others for having a “fooled gun.” He is listed as attending the July, 1, 1644 general court.

At the court of July 3, 1648, he was complained for being absent at the general court. However, he said that “he had some hay which did lie upon storage, there being many cattle lying at it, that if he did not fetch it that day it would have been eaten and spoiled and he endeavored to fetch it the week before but it was so wet that he could not. The hay was scarce worth the fetching, but his necessity required it for preserving his cattle, which the court considering it, past it by without fine.”

After he married the widow of William Ives, the court required that he give in security for the children of William Ives, according to the will of William Ives and that he not alter any of the estate until he acquaint the court with it. When he was near marriage to Hannah, the court asked him to provide the same security, but he asked to be deferred until after the marriage and the court granted this deferment.

At the court of Feb. 6, 1648, it was recorded that Edward Banister passed over to William Bassett 12 acres of land in the suburbs on this side of the west river, three acres of meadow in the West meadow and 24 acres in the second division. After the 1648 marriage, the Bassett family continued to live in the house of William Ives at 72 – 160 Congress Street until William Bassett sold it in 1651/2 to the widow of Anthony Thompson. He placed eleven pounds worth of cattle as security for John Ives’ portion of the property.

At the court of July 4, 1648, the court complained to him for not bringing his arms to the meeting on the Sabbath day, which was his squadron. He answered that “he was changed from one squadron to another and know not that it was his day, and when he saw it, he brought them in the afternoon, but he was told it was his neglect and he should know, but the court, finding it was not willful neglect, agreed that he pay half the fine, which was 2 shillings, 6 pence.”

At the same court, it was recorded that “he passed over to Matthew Canfield two acres of meadow, one acre lying on the west meadow, and another of the this side of the river
between the meadow of Richard Osborne and Thomas Knowles, as well as 8 ½ aces of upland in the suburbs quarter on this side of the West River.” At the court of August 7, 1649, William Bassett passed over to Robert Emry one house and barn that was sometimes Edward Bannister’s with 6 ½ acres of upland. He was fined 12 pence for coming late to his watch at the court of Oct. 2, 1649. In 1661, he acquired a portion of Matthew Gilbert’s place in Hamden, with Richard Newman buying the remainder. William Bassett’s wife died sometime after 1662, and before he wrote his will in 1679.

In her last recorded appearance before the New Haven court of August 5, 1662, Goodwife Bassett apologized to the court for her “sin in meddling with that which did not concern her,” the execution of William Potter, and breaking the fourth commandment. William Bassett also apologized for his role in saying bad things about Thomas Wheaton for his execution, by order of the court, of William Potter. William
Potter was the father-in-law of her first daughter by William Ives, Phebe, so this may have given them reason to feel connected to the event.

William Bassett declared to the court that he was low in his estate and asked that they would consider an abatement of his fines for this act. The court said they would consider it. On October 20, 1673, the court granted him ownership of two parcels of meadow that formerly belonged to William Potter that he, William Bassett, had possessed for a number of years. James Bishop and John Cooper witnessed the agreement.

History of the Bassett’s in Rutlandshire
Alan Bassett was keeper of the king's escheats in 1232 (fn. 64) and escheator for Rutland in 1246. (fn. 65) He was succeeded by a son Richard, (fn. 66) who was dead before 1263, when Alan's sons, John and Gilbert Bassett, released to William, son of Richard Bassett, two parts of a messuage and two carucates of land in North Luffenham of the inheritance of Alan their father. (fn. 67) In 1305 and 1315 John Bassett held a fortieth part of a knight's fee in North Luffenham. (fn. 68) It was probably this same John who testified to the coming of age of Giles son of Bartholomew de Badlesmere in 1335. He was then 50 years of age and had a son of the same age as Giles. (fn. 69) He was appointed in 1307 and 1313 to collect a twentieth and a fifteenth in Rutland and served on various commissions and offices mostly relating to Rutland. (fn. 70) In 1313 John and Peter Bassett were accused of assaulting Robert de Glaston at North Luffenham. (fn. 71) These may be the John and Peter Bassett who were tenants of Thomas la Zouche at North Luffenham in 1345 and perhaps sons of John. (fn. 72) The fee was returned in 1402 and 1406 as held by the heir of John Bassett, (fn. 73) and in 1428 it is returned as late in the possession of Peter Bassett. (fn. 74) The name of John Bassett of North Luffenham occurs in the list of the gentry of Rutland in 1434, who swore not to maintain peace breakers. (fn. 75) John Bassett was lord of this manor in 1498. (fn. 76) He left a son Nicholas, who married Katherine daughter of Lawrence Awnell. (fn. 77) By an undated complaint before the Star Chamber in the time of Henry VIII Anthony Bassett of North Luffenham accused Simon Digby and others of assaulting him in the house of William Islip of North Luffenham. (fn. 78) Thomas, son of Nicholas Bassett, died in 1532 holding the manor of North Luffenham which had been settled on him and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of William Bewfo, (fn. 79) in 1525. He also held land and a water mill in South Luffenham, and a horse mill in North Luffenham. His son Edward, then aged 24, who succeeded him, (fn. 80) died childless in 1534, and John his brother succeeded to the manor. (fn. 81) John married Anne, daughter of Thomas Rouse of Rowslinch (co. Worc.), (fn. 82) and in 1545 he and his wife conveyed a water mill and land in North and South Luffenham to John Wymark. (fn. 83) In 1569 the manor was settled on John and Anne in tail male. (fn. 84) John died in 1575.(fn. 85) and in 1585 Anne and her son John conveyed the manor for the purpose of settlement to Edmund Rouse. (fn. 86) John Bassett had a large family of children by his wife Elizabeth Lyon. (fn. 87) He was succeeded in 1626 by his eldest son John, (fn. 88) who with his wife Anne sold the manor in 1628 to John Exton, (fn. 89) and in 1636 John Exton, Thomasina his wife and Bridget Exton, Widow, sold it to Edward Viscount Campden. (fn. 90) (Source:'Parishes: North Luffenham ', A History of the County of Rutland: Volume 2 (1935), pp. 195-203.)

Design rationale
The shield contains the basic ancient metal of gold and color red of the arms of Ralph Bassett. The three piles meeting in the base are reminiscent of the Ridel /Ridell arms. The canton was changed to reflect the locality of Bassett manor near the River Chater. The crest is the image of Sarah Anne Bassett nee’ Dennis as a pioneer woman at what is now known as Hopkins, Minnesota. Charles and Sarah had some harrowing experiences with the Indians. They made a practice of entering the cabin and taking any bread they found there. One day when they tracked up her newly scrubbed floor, Mrs. Bassett, her patience exhausted, seized a butcher knife and chased them out. This is intended to recall her fearless response to an adverse frontier which is mentioned in the Seventh Generation of the Bassett family in America. The crest also is meant to show a new chapter in the family's story. (Source: Heralds Visitation of Rutland 1618; General Armory p. 56.)

Biographical information
John Dann was a weaver and farmer born at Coolrain, Offerlane Parish, County Laois, Ireland, on 29 August, 1792. John Dann traveled via stage from Coolrain to Dublin, Ireland, where he left in the summer of 1819 landing at Quebec, Canada in the fall of 1819. The voyage took him seven weeks and three days. He traveled south from Lake Champlain, settling at New Hartford, Oneida County, New York.
Parents (Dann): John Dann's father, also named John Dann, was born at Mary Borough, Queens County, Ireland in 1745/1746. He married Ann Benn, who was born at Coolrain, Offerlane Parish, in 1752. Ann Benn's family was said to have been of Dutch Quaker descent. They arrived in Ireland in 1650. John Dann and Ann Benn were married at Coolrain on 20 November, 1774. John Dann was a weaver, farmer, and parish clerk, of Clonenagh or Offerlane Parish. He served as parish clerk for 45 years. He dwelt at Ballycormick, Townland, Queens County in the Barony of Maryborough West and Parish Colenagh and Colonagheen. John died at Coolrain on 7 August, 1823 at the age of 77. Ann followed in death at Coolrain on 24 January, 1827 at the age of 75.
Gfather (Dann): John Dann, John Dann's grandfather, one of three brothers, was said to have arrived from Holland, landing in the British Isles in 1689, amongst the army of Prince William of Orange, under Shomberg that fought at the battle of the Boyne on 1, July, 1690. Later, the three brothers settled in Ireland.
John Dann's wife, Mary McPherson, was born at Cambuslang, Renfrew, Scotland on 21 December, 1804.
Parents (McPherson): Mary McPherson's father, John Alexander McPherson, was born at Paisley, Scotland on 8 March, 1782. John Alexander McPherson was said to have been of Highland Scotch descent, of the Clan McPherson. He married Mary Logan on 13 August, 1804 in Renfrewshire, Scotland. She was also born at Paisley, Scotland, on 8 August, 1784. John Alexander McPherson died at Troy, New York on 9 October, 1860. Mary, his wife, followed in death, also at Troy, New York on 4 April, 1874. Mary Logan was the daughter of a herring fisherman. One day, her father went out to fish off the Western Scottish coast. His boat was later found, bottom side up. His wife and children never saw him again.

John Alexander McPherson and family also arrived from Europe in 1819, landing at Montreal Canada, crossing into New York State. They settled on five acres in the area known as Slatenbush, in the town of New Hartford, where John Alexander McPherson ran a small farm and wove in his shop. This is where John Dann worked for John Alexander McPherson and where he met Mary McPherson, whom he later married on 17 January, 1824. They both wove together to help pay expenses. They rented a house on the turn pike road between Utica and New Hartford. Later they purchased a farm at Hillsborough in the town of Camden, New York, consisting of 140 acres, which they moved to in the spring of 1832.

The Dann family later moved to the newly purchased Dann farm at Hillsborough, Camden, New York, where Margaret Dann was raised, and later left to live and work at Utica, where she was, according to Robert Dann, living in a boarding house, called Millner House, at Mrs. Maynard’s in 1854, based on the 1854 city directory of Utica, New York.

The children born to John Dann and Mary McPherson were 12 in all, five of which were born at New Hartford. (1) Johnathan, on 22 October, 1825. (2) Mary Ann on 17 November, 1826. (3) Margaret Dann was born on 28 May, 1828. (4) John Alden on 19 February, 1830. (5) William Francis on 12 December, 1831. The remaining children were born at the farm in Hillsborough, Camden, New York: (6) Isaac Newton on 30 September, 1833. (7) Robert on 3 July, 1835. He later died on 22 September 1837. (8) Jesse W. was born on 19 September 1837. (9) Thomas Monroe on 25 March, 1839. (10) Edward Howard on 18 August 1841. (11) Charlotte Melissa on 15 February, 1845.

Mary later sold the house at Camden and moved to New Haven, Connecticut to live with her sons until she died on 12 April, 1887. She was buried at Fair Haven Cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut.

(This information, in part, was sent to me from Robert T.
Dann. A greater portion was penned by William Frances Dann
in 1895. The Aberle family had two copies; however, a broken
marriage and fire destroyed both. These arms are meant to
honor these men in their efforts in preserving this
family’s story.)
Design rationale
the blue shield represents the waters surrounding the British Isles which this family and its branches ventured out from. The orange canton and three daggers represent military service under Schomberg, at the battle of the Boyne for the cause William of Orange, on 1 July, 1690. The wild cat sajant is for the maternal links to clan McPherson. The garb is for farming and the weavers’ shuttle represents both the Danns and McPherson’s, as dual tradesmen in farming and weaving. The tea spoon in the crest was John Dann's last gift that he received from his mother, Ann Benn, just prior to his departure from Dublin Ireland. That was the last time he saw her. The motto was pulled from the Dann history, "Seek to Dwell in Freedoms Hall." From a verse entered into the family’s story which was handed down from father to son as to the motivation for crossing the western sea to America. After a prior event involving the Dann family and a former landlord. John Dann stated that it was “better to dwell in freedoms hall, with a cold damp hearth and moldering wall, than to bend the neck and bow the knee, in the proudest palace of Slavery.”

I am interested in the information about Marit "Halvorson", daughter of Johanna and Halvor Bessen who immigrated to the US in 1882, according to my notes. Marit was my grandfather's sister. His name was John Halvorson. I have a complete family tree for John and also his brothers Hemming and Peter Halvorson. They were Marit's brothers.
I have been researching since 1990 and have made trips to Meraker, Selbu, Roros, Tydal in Norway.

V.E.G.

William Bassett and Hannah Dickerman are the direct descendants of the hero, Alan B. Hall! "Uncle" Alan Hall is watching over the children of Connecticut from the heavens!
