• Background Information. 535
Burke names Maud's parents as Ralph Basset and Joan, daughter of John Grey, Justice of Chester. Other sources call Ralph Basset's wife Hawise, but considering one of Mauds descendants if a heir of the last Ralph Basset, her uncle, it is very likely that Hawise is a daughter of John Grey.

"Maud, married to William de Heriz & mother of Joan who married Jordan le Brett and had a son or grandson, Sir John Brett, whose daughter Catherine married Sir John Caltoft, and their daugher married Alice, wife of Sir William Chaworth, who was one of the heirs to Ralph, last Lord Basset of Drayton. The son and heir of Alice Chaworth was Sir Thomas Chaworth who married 1st Nichola daughter of Sir Reginald Braybroke, by whom he had a daughter Elizabeth, wife of John 6th Lord Scrope of Masham."
