I'm very skeptic of your claims, like you write:

this up with references ?

Bass is related to the latin for low, whereas base is related to the
Greek verb "bainoo" for step (eg. Xenophon's Anabasis). I'd say there
is no basis (pun intended) for mixing them up, and if anyone did so in
the 1600s, then they're as clueless as the people who mix it up today.
