Family notes:
• According to multiple researchers this family is quite complicated due to intermarriages, and repetition of names in various branches at nearby locations especially those of Wimpole.
• Rosamund Hoo: The tenement called Gannocks had been settled by Rosamond de Hoo (living in 1316) upon Warin de Bassingbourn of Wimpole during her life with reversion to her own son Robert de Bassingbourn. (S) Parishes: Sandon, A History of the County of Hertford: V3, 1912, pp. 270-276. [Seems to indicate she was not this Warin’s wife.]

Child of Warren and Rosamond:

i. John Bassingbourne (1247666), born 1308 in England. [3rd son]
