Posts losing parent information

I am using the latest version of wordpress. v4.7.3
I have created my own custom post type(x2).
Each Custom Post Type has taxonomies (2 each).
I have 4000+ records, which i have painstakingly set the "post_parent", as this attribute refused to copy over from the legacy system (irrelevant).
I browse to the taxonomy page in the backend, where i can edit and search amongst these records.
I hit "title", hoping that this will sort the CPT's in that taxonomy by title..
... yeah... That worked... but what also happened was, it stripped all of those Custom posts of their parent!! :O
I now have 238 posts, within that taxonomy, where the parent_post field needs correcting... again :/
