Bassett Genealogy & History

Bassett is an English surname, from the Middle English and Old French bas or basse, for low or short, from the Latin bassus, meaning thickly set or wide. The original surname was Bass, and Bassett developed as a diminutive; both were likely used as a nickname for short or stocky men. It might also be locational, from a village in Normandy called Bassett. Bassett family history begins with Ralph Basset, added to the Domesday Book of Hertfordshire in 1086. Bassett genealogy lays claim to a handful of illustrious persons, such as actress Angela Bassett, urban planning progenitor Edward Bassett, and astronaut Charles Bassett.
