William Bassett, d. at Sandwich, 10 June 1670. [Cites Source:Preston, Mary Isabella. Bassett-Preston Ancestors which on p. 26 makes the same assertion with no evidence given. His death does not seem to be recorded in Sandwich records, either on this date or the 29 May 1670 date seen in some sources.]
Identifies and differentiates the five Bassett men who came early to New England. It should be noted that William2 Bassett born ca. 1624 at Plymouth was son of William1 who came to Plymouth in 1621. The fact that both William2 Bassett of Plymouth and William1 Bassett of Dorking, Surrey and Lynn, were born in 1624 has led to some confusion.
