Birth: 1095

Death: 1144
Thurleigh
Bedfordshire, England

Richard Basset, son and heir of Ralph Basset, succeeded him to the barony of Welden in Northamptonshire. During the life of his father, he seems to have advanced to position where he assisted in the administration of justice in the Aula Regis. This can be seen in the great roll of Henry I that mentioned both he and his father as justices for Norfolk, Suffolk and Surrey. Richard Basset married Matilda, the daughter and heir of Geoffrey Ridel, who was a justiciary as well.
