From Braintree Records.

his father Humphrey Benjamin Basse (born 1565- Saffron, Walden, Essex, England - 1616 - London, England) Humphrey was also the father of Captain Nathaniel Bass (lots of printed info on him about his coming to Virginia)

his father William Joseph Basse (born 1520 France - 1616 London, Middlesex, England)

My father's mother, Linden Virginia Bolen Brezler Bass (1907-1982) her parents, Albert H. Brezler (1879-1911) and Sadie Clare McCuen Brezler (1887-1911). This is what I know... When Linden was a small child she contracted measles. She passed them on to her mother, Sadie and Sadie died shortly after that. Sadie's parents (Turner Jackson McCuen and his wife, Ida Mae Bolen McCuen) raised Linden after that. Linden was on the 1910 census with Sadie and her grandparents in Baltimore. Albert was living with his mother Mary Brezler in Baltimore on the 1910 Census. Albert died of Tuberculosis in 1911. Albert's parents were Jacob Brezler (1848- about 1900) and Mary Brezler (1849-?). Jacob arrived in Baltimore in 1853 from Wurtenburg, Germany. He crossed on the ship Peter. His parents were Charles Karl Brezler (1807-?) and Margaretha Gross Brezler. Charles Karl's father was Christof Brezler (1773-?) and his mother's name is unknown.
