William Carpentar, by the consent of Henry Biset, his Son, and of Manasser Biset, his own Brother, and of Ernulphus Biset, his Nephew, gave his Mill on Doverbek, called Clive-Milne, to the Priory of Thurgarton, for the Souls of William Biset his Father, and Howisa his Mother, and Susanna his Wife, and Henry Biset, and Ausoldus his Brothers, and Henry his Nephew, and all his Ancestors, so that the said Mill should be towards the building of the new Church; and when that should be finished, to be expended amongst the Friars, reserving to himself and his Heirs, the multure of the Corn of his Demesne, when he would grind there. With this he gave himself Living if he pleased; or if he died in England, there to be buried. [Reg. de Thurg. p. 56] .

William Bisset married Hawise, of unknown parents. This marriage is confirmed by an undated charter in which their son "Willielmus Carpentarius" donated "molendinum meum de Cliva" to Thurgarton Priory, for the souls of "patris mei Willielmi Bisset et matris meæ Hawisæ et uxoris meæ Susannæ et…fratris mei Henrici Bisset et Ausoldi fratris mei et Henrici nepotis mei" [Dugdale Monasticon, Vol. VI.1, Thurgarton Priory, Nottinghamshire, IX, p. 191].
