     Isabel Basset was born illegitimately.2 She is the daughter of Sir Hugh Meinill and Alice Audley.1 She married Sir Thomas Shirley, son of Sir Ralph de Shirley and Margaret de Waldeshef.3
     It is not clear if Isabel is paternal (but illegitimate) half sister of Ralph Basset, 3rd Baron Basset of Drayton, by his father, or if she is a uterine sister by Alice and Sir Hugh Meinill. Various claims have been advanced that she is a full sister of Ralph's, but Cokayne dismisses these claims.2 Her married name became Shirley.3
