<< Paget's Baronage gives no birthdate for either Thomas Basset or Gilbert
Basset. But he does indicate that Thomas had land grants in 1222 and
1224, and that Gilbert was granted property in 1217 and 1229. Taken at
face value, this suggests that both Thomas and Gilbert Basset were born
before 1200, >>
Just based on this, I would suspect that the Gilbert in 1217 is a different
person (uncle?). Otherwise I'm not sure why Gilbert would get land in 1217 as
a younger brother, with the elder not getting anything until 1222. Provided
all the sources still exist. While it's perfectly acceptable that Thomas got
land twice before Gilbert got any.
