Benjamin Humphrey Bass (1565-1616) and his wife Mary Buschier (1565-1616) lived and died in London England. They were my 9th great grandparents. One of their children, Samuel Bass emigrated to the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts in 1634 with his wife Anne Saville and the four of their children who had been born in England. These were Sarah, Samuel, Mary, and John. Other members of the Bass family immigrated to Virginia.
The ship Mayflower arrived and discharged its passengers at Plymouth Massachusetts in 1620, the place of the first New England settlement. In 1630 the town of Boston was founded, providing an excellent harbor.
Samual Bass (1600-1694) & Anne Saville (1601-1693)
Samuel Bass and his wife Anne Saville arrived in Massachusits in 1634 with their first four children. They subsequently had 5 additional children: Joseph, Thomas, Ruth, Benjamin and Sarah. Little is known of the family but of note is that they were long lived. Anne lived to 92, dying in 1693 and Samuel died at age 94 in 1694 .
These two family lines continue on separate paths to about 1877 when Harvey Louis Copeland married Jennie Marcia Thayer. They were my grandparents.
