Birth*4 December 1673 John Bass was born on 4 December 1673 at Nansemond, VA.1,2 
 He was the son of William Bass Sr. and Catherine LANIER
MARRIAGE*8 January 1696 He married Love Harris, daughter of Richard Harris and Ann (?), on 8 January 1696 at VA Married in either Nansemond Co., VA or Perquimans Co., VA. Albert D. Bell says they were both of Nansemond County and parish and were married by Major Samuel Swann Esq. Bell then goes on to say: "Exactly as it appears in "Perquimans Precinct, Births, Marriages, Deaths and Flesh Marks, 1659-1739, p 16, folio 4 (Seen and handled by A.D.

EXPLANATION AND APOLOGY FROM THE COMPILER:
I sincerely regret the disorderly manner in which these odd bits and pieces of information had to be presented. Return trips to some courthouses, etc., sometimes resulted in the addition or correction of material already printed. On the off chance that one of these items may be the very one that someone needs, I decided to try to get them in, somehow, at the very last minute. The oldest Bass item in N.C., the marriage bond of John Bass and Love Harris had to be reprinted, anyhow, because all printed versions of it are "translations" or restatements of the document, rather than literal copies. (Hathaway, Winslow, et al.) The fact of the marriage seemed more important than anything else until certain questions arose concerning descendants of John Bass and his brother Edward. Then it became very important to confirm the Nansemond connections of John. The Perquimans County items required little space. So, the rest of the items could be included. Please accept my sincere apologies for being unable to put them in alphabetical order; but it could not be done without reprinting more pages than we could afford. MVW has no idea what this means, but seem worthy of inclusion in view of the John/Edward controversy of 1999.

John Bass and Love Harris was Married ye 8th day of Janewary 1696 both of Nanse Mum County and Nanse Mum Parresh by Mager Samuel Swann Esqr. [Haun, Old Albemarle County North Carolina, 62].3,4,5 
MARRIAGE*after 1724 He married Mary (?) after 1724 at Perquimans, NC, I infer this date as it follows the birth of a supposed date of last child Patience. Patience is listed as being John's daughter, and evidently Mary had been married before and brought some children to the marriage who John called "my last wife's children - unnamed".

Mary married a man named Staples before Nov 21 1748 as she sold her right of dower and thirds of property to John Bass, Jr.2 
Death*18 January 1732 He died on 18 January 1732 at Bertie, NC, at age 58 The will of John Bass reads as follows (the print is small and difficult to read making a number of gaps): In the name of God amen I John Bass being sick and weak of body Butt of Sound Senses and memory Thanks be to God Do make and Ordain this to be my Last will in manner and form following -- First and Imprimis I give and Bequeath to my son Edward Bass my manor plantation whereon I now live to him and the heirs of his body lawfully begotten for Ever But except that the use and liberty of said plantation for my loving wife Mary for her lifetime for use in bringing up my small children.

Note that wife Mary remarried after this will and sold her right of dower to her son.2 
Probate*18 January 1732 His estate was probated on 18 January 1732 at NC His 18 January 1732 Bertie County will named his children, gave his wife Mary "the liberty of the plantation ... for bringing up my small children," referred to "my sd last wife's children," and left 50 acres to his friend, Daniel Wharten Burbegg [SS 876/3:305].6,5 
Note* He In response to a question from another researcher I received this reply from Al Bass, an authority on the family:
Margot,
Glad to hear from you again.
I see nothing here that I did not reference in my John Bass of Virginia.
I am 100% convinced that John Bayes was not the father of the John Bass who married Love Harris. I am 98% convinced that John Bayes was not even closely related to said John Bass.
I know it is not interesting reading, and I know that my John Bass of Virginia does not PROVE that John Bass was the son of William Basse, but it does demonstrate that all of the documentary evidence is consistent with same, and that there is not a shred of evidence that is consistent with the contrary contention that John Bass was a son of John Bayes.
Al Bass. 
Name Variation Letter (C) is not part of his name. Given for identification purposes only.7 
MINUTES*15 October 1701 He was mentioned in the minutes John Bass born 4 December 1673, was living in Norfolk County on 15 October 1701 when a case against him brought by Thomas Hodges, Surveyor, for being delinquent "from the high wayes" was dismissed on his paying costs [DB 6:220]. He was not mentioned in his father's will because he predeceased him. His marriage was recorded in Perquimans Precinct, North Carolina. on 15 October 1701 at Norfolk, VA.5 
LANDCONTRA*1720  In 1720 The land of John Bass, Sr. was located near Uraha Swamp near the present town of Rich Square, North Carolina. Here are some excerpts from N.C. land records: January 30, 1720 for 15 Pounds Abraham Hill of Nansemond County, Virginia sold 200 Acres to John Bass of Chowan precinct (Chowan County later became Bertie County, North Carolina). The land was located near the head of Horsepool Swamp and adjoined land of Thomas Speight. This is described in Abstracts of Wills of Edgecomb County and is contained in Deed Book C #1 of Chowan County, North Carolina item #1353 page 116. February 12, 1722 for 15 Pounds William Whitehead and wife Rachel sold 300 Acres of land to John Bass which was located on south side of Urah (Swamp) adjoining James Field. This land was part of a patent surveyed by Richard Washington and lapsed. (Patent of 600 acres dated March 30, 1721). This transfer is noted in Colonial Bertie County 1720-1757 which abstracts Deed Book A 124. January 13, 1728 for 25 Pounds John Bass sold 310 acres to James Field. This was the land he bought from Thomas Speight on July 14, 1719. The land was located then in the precinct of Perquimans. This sale is referenced in History of Perquimans which abstracts from Deed Book C #2 of Perquimans County (where? Va. or N.C). 
LANDCONTRA16 July 1722 He purchased land on 16 July 1722 at NC.5 
LANDCONTRA14 April 1727 He purchased land on 14 April 1727 at Land Patent, Bertie, NC, Land joined Yourha swamp, James Hutchinson and Robert Newsam.8

Subject: Bass DNA results chart

 Margret 
 
Recently you emailed me and asked   "I would like any additional information you are willing to share. You and I share the common ancestor, John Bass Jr. father of Abraham. Where can I find more details about the two Bass lines? This is fascinating."
 
I am confident with my line back to John Bass & Lovey Harris - things before that time are in dispute. I work with an english friend named Malcolm Dood who lives in Portugal  so he is copied on my DNA emails  My friend Malcolm is more technically competent with the DNA than me. I am enclosing our latest chart of the results of the DNA tests to date.  My line include the ones with the A Haplotype. It appears the other early Virginia Basses were the ones with the R1b1 Hyplotype. The A Haplotype is the oldest Hyplotype on the face of the earth and one of the most rare. The Basses with that Haplotype came out of South Africa only 1000 to 1500 years ago and were  bushmen and members so the Koi and San tribes. I have been in contact with Dr. Bennett Greenspan who heads up the FT DNA poject as well as others working with the Genome project from National Geographic. Being a white anglo-saxon and somewhat prejudiced I was stunned when I first found the results. We are trying to find the route the A Haplotype(s) used to get to this continent. I know they were inter-mixed with the Chowan and Nansemond Indians. We have enough data to write a novel but the mix-up in early Virginia is going to be difficult to sort out.
