Bass Genealogy & History

Bass is a descriptive English surname, derived from the Old French "basse" meaning "thickset", derived from the Latin "bassus", meaning "wide". Thus it was used to describe someone short and stout, although some suggest that with the ironic Middle Ages sense of humor, it could also be someone tall and thin! It is not likely an occupation name (bass-seller) derived from Old English "baes". The Bass family history dates back to the 13th-century family seat (feudal manor) in Haddingtonshire, and the coat of arms is a black shield with a silver border. American Bass genealogy includes emigrants to Virginia and Massachusetts in the 1630s.
