This information about the Bass family at post # 78771 in FAMILY NAMES Bass, Brezler, McCuen and Bolen by UniQue Treasures.

From my research, the Bass Family originated in France and then migrated to England. The original "American" Bass was Deacon Samuel Bass, from Braintree, Norfolk, MA.

I have a lot of information on the Bass Family thanks to the diligent research of my uncle, Richard Sheldon Lashley.

These are my Father's People:

John Bass was a wheelwright and a malster. He was baptized on 18 September 1630 at Saffron Walden, Essex, England. He was the son of Deacon Samuel Bass and Anne Saville Bass. On 13 February 1657 at Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, John married Ruth Alden, daughter of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. Their marriage date was recorded as 13 (12) 1657, and was preformed by John Alden of Duxbury. On 21 September 1675 at Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, John married Hannah (?). The marriage date was recorded as 21 (7) 1675. On 11 May 1694 at Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, John Bass was mentioned in the will of Deacon Samuel Bass. John Bass left a will on 25 June 1716. He died on Saturday, 12 September 1716 at Quincy, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, at age 85 years, 11 months and 25 days. John's will was proved on 22 October 1716.

-his father Samuel Bass (1588 Walden, Essex, England -1694 Braintree, Norfolk, MA) Samuel arrived in America about 1630.
