I came across your post quite by accident but it is of great interest to me as my family lived in Wardley Street. My great-great-grandfather was William Gagen, his wife Harriet Adelaide Bassett. I haven't been able to find anything on her family except that her father was David and he said his occupation was a bailiff (as given on her marriage certificate). Harriet was born about 1835. Do you know if Harriet and her father were related to your Bassetts? I have no idea what she looked like but I am told the children were dark with very dark brown eyes. My great-grandfather was described as 'swarthy' in his army records.
