    William Bass, born 29 March 1654, married Catherine Lanier who died 17 February 1691/2. He was called William Bass, Sr., on 13 October 1715 when he admitted in Norfolk County Court that he owed John Hodgson 50 pounds of tobacco [Orders 1710-17, 169]. On 17 March 1726/7 he claimed to have cleared lands near the Dismal Swamp which hath been used by his and Their forebears since & before English governance in Virginia. He received a certificate from the Norfolk County Clerk confirming his rightful possession of the land and further stating that

    William Bass, Senr. & ... his sons Wm. Bass, Thomas Bass and Joseph Bass, & spinster daughter Mary Bass are persons of English and Nansemun Indian descent with no Admixture of negor, Ethipopic blood

    He was called William Bass, Senr., and was living in Western Branch District of Norfolk County on 6 January 1729 when he purchased 103 acres in Norfolk County at the mouth of Deep Branch for 25 pounds [DB G:fol.35(p.183)]. He was taxable with his son, Thomas, in the Western Branch District of Norfolk County in 1730, 1731 (called William Bass, Sr.), 1732 (with William Horse/Horsey in his household), and 1733-36 living near Richard and Eliza Price and William Price whose wife was taxable in 1736 [Wingo, Norfolk County Tithables, 1730-50, 20, 38, 73, 94, 138, 183]. He was probably in debt when he made his 1 October 1740 will since he left his land to his daughter, Mary, "if she can Save it." (3) The will, proved 17 September 1742 in Norfolk County, mentioned his children, William, Edward, Joseph, Thomas, and Mary (executrix), and grandson, William Bass [WB H:8].
