Antonio "Anthony" Bassano
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1511
Veneto, Italy
Death: Oct. 19, 1574
Greater London, England

Son of Jeronimo or Hieronymus de Bassan
Husband of Elena de Nasi
Father of : Anjelica, Margaretta, Isabella, Elizabeth,
Mark Anthony, Arthur/Arturo, Nicholas, Edward, Andrea,
and Lucretia

The BASSANO surname did not change from de Bassan until the second and third generation Bassano's in England. Before that, they were called Bassani or Bassany or 'de Bassan' from their original Hebrew name. Bassan comes from the root words 'Basam' 'Basal' and 'Bassa' that are synonymous.
Anthony Bassano was a 16th century Italian musician.
Bassano, born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, was one of six sons of Jeronimo Bassano (Anthony, Jacomo, Alvise, Jasper, John and Baptista) who moved from Venice to England to the household of Henry VIII to serve the court, probably in 1540. Of his ten children, the five sons (Mark Anthony, Arthur, Edward, Andrea and Jeronimo) all served as musicians to the court of Henry VIII, and a daughter (Lucreece Bassano) married Nicholas Lanier the Elder, grandfather of the artist-musician Nicholas Lanier.

By the time Anthony made his will, he appears
to have become the sole owner of the Mark Lane property originally shared with Jasper and John. He refers to it as his 'mansion house', and his son Arthur, who eventually inherited it, described it again as a 'capital messuage'
The term messuage generally meant a dwelling house
with some adjacent land assigned to its use.
Anthony left the property in the first instance to his wife,
together with another house he still owned in Venice,
(perhaps in fact his share of the house in Bassano)
and all his possessions, to be divided equally at her death among his five surviving sons.
