Mullins, William (I305)
2507 William came on the Ship Fortune; resided at Duxbury and Bridgewater, Mass.; was a gunsmith and metal worker. The Bassett family in Sandwich, England is Huguenot per Barber's "British Family Names"{-"The Trail of the Huguenots...," G. Elmore Reaman (Toronto: Thomas Allen Ltd., 1963, p.263)} William is of the Sandwich, England and Bethnal Green, Middlesex line.{-"Saints and Strangers", G.F.Williston, and "The Pilgrim Reader".} The surname appears in 1066--Thurstine de Bassett was Grand Falconer to the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. The name is thereafter notable in England - in the Domesday Book as well as the Battle Abbey Roll. Thurstine built Beaupre Castle near Cambridge in Glamorgan, Wales, soon after the Conquest, and his son Ralph was Lord Chief Justice of England under King Henry I. Another Bassett castle is at Tehidy Park in Camborne, Cornwall; this line had large incomes from mining. Two Bassetts were among the King's counsellors at the signing of the Magna Charta. The Leyden, Holland record indicates that "Pioneer" William Bassett came from Sandwich, England, a master mason, widower of Cecelia Light. William was Representative, 1640-44; with Gov. Bradford and others he joined in the purchase of Dartmouth and moved to Bridgewater, Mass. in 1652. Arriving in 1621, he was one of the "purchasers", first in Plymouth with his wife, Elizabeth, and son, William, and daughter, Elizabeth, and took part in the division of cattle in 1627; then resided at Duxbury; then was among the first settlers and a proprietor of Bridgewater. "Pioneer" William Bassett was baptised at Stepney, 24 Oct 1600, per Charles Edward Banks, "The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers" (Balt.:Gen.Pub.Co., 1971), p.106, who also states that he arrived in America never married and married there before the land division of 1623! "The Mayflower Planters" (Balt.: Gen.Pub.Co.) lists William who arrived on the Fortune in 1621 as married to Margaret Oldham and settled in Duxbury, an "iron monger from Bethnal, Co. Middlesex," whose father is John Bassett. Also see the "Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families." (Note: Mary and Elizabeth are often the same name - Mary Oldham may be Elizabeth Bassett.) Cf. "Plymouth Colony," Eugene Stratton, pp. 242-3; "One Bassett Family in America," Buell Burdett Bassette (New Britain, Conn.: 1926), pp. 1-10. Bassett, "Pioneer" William (I2283)

Knowlton Genealogy by C.H.W. Stocking 1897
Errata & Addenda by G.H. Knowlton 1903:
Captain William Knowlton sailed from London, England to Nova Scotia in 1632-4 w/ wife & children. He was at least part owner in the boat. He died on the voyage. His wife & children continued to Nova Scotia. They remained in Nova Scotia for a short time. They then proceeded to Ma., probally Hingham, the following year, where his widow is said to have remarried. John removed to Ipswich in 1639 & William & Thomas in 1642. John, Benjamin, Abraham, & William served in King Phillip's War.
This "story" by Stocking has been disproven by several people.

Knowlton, Robert (I2630)
