      History of Bristol County, Massachusetts
      By Duane Hamilton Hurd

      Ezra Bassett was born in Rochester, in the commonwealth of
      Massachusetts. His parents were poor people. He studied law with his brother,
      Anselm Bassett, Esq., at Taunton, and commences the practice of the law in
      Taunton. He also for a short time had an office in Attleborough. In 1834 he
      came to New Bedford, and there remained, having a considerable share of the
      law business until his death in December, 1843. He was a good lawyer, h
      considerable admiralty practice, and was earnest, energetic, and faithful in
      his client’s interest. He had a large and well-selected law library, perhaps
      the best law library at the time of any lawyer in New Bedford. He is
      frequently spoken of by the present members of the bar in the city of N
      Bedford with much respect. There is now only one member of the bar (Jud
      Prescott) at New Bedford who was practicing law at his death.
