Friends,
The Genforum staff were kind enough to allow this new surname to be added. Please add your post now so that we may keep it here. If no one posts, they'll drop it.

JEAN JACQUES LUIS BASSET OF CHRISTCHURCH, YORKSHIRE,
ENGLAND
This material came from Elizabeth Nitschke Hicks and census records.
FIRST GENERATION
53B. Jean Jacques Luis Basset married Mary Lavalette on 20 Aug 1767 in
Christchurch, Yorkshire, England. Family legend lists her as a cousin of Gen. Lafayette. Family
tradition states that Basset and Lavalette went to England from Switzerland via
France to run away and get married. They were only in England for two generations.

2.1--One son (no name/age listed) emigrated to America, and his whole family were wiped out in a yellow
fever epidemic in Philadelphia.
2.2--John James Louis Basset, the other son, married Mary Miles, an English girl; they settled in Sussex,
England, and raised 14 children."

I have much more at my site:

Don't forget to post here first, then e.mail me--thanks!
