HUSSEY OF SLINFOLD, SUSSEX.

THE pedigree of this family in Dallaway's

  • Sussex ' (ii. 355-6) leaves much to be

desired. Not only is no indication given of its origin, or of its connexion if any with ^any other of the widespread county families of the name, but the earlier gene- rations seem to be far from accurately stated.

Sir Henry Hussey, with whom the pedigree commences, and whose parentage is not stated, was undoubtedly the first of the line at Slinfold, an estate he seemingly acquired in marriage with Eleanor, daughter


and heir of John Bradridge of Slinfold. He was M.P. for Horsham 1529-53, and received knighthood on 1 Oct., 1547. According to Dallaway, he left at his death in 1557 two sons, viz. (1) John, who in- herited Slinfold and is said to have died in 1563, leaving at the least three sons and one daughter ; (2) Anthony, M.P. for Horsham in 1558.

The will of Sir John Hussey appears to be somewhat at variance with this. It is dated 18 Feb., 1554/5, and was proved in P.C.C. 27 Sept., 1557. Names his wife Dame Bridget ; his brothers John and George Hussey ; his wife's two daughters (then un- married) Katherine and Alice ; his brother (brother-in-law) Michael Appesley (Apsley) ; his cousin William Hussey, " son to my cousin Anthony Hussey " ; cousin John Mychell of Standland. No sons are men- tioned by name, but to Dame Bridget his wife is left " the wardship of my two sons." Said wife executrix. Sir Thomas Palmer,. Kt., John Carryl, Mr. Anthony Husee, brother John Husee, cousin John Mychell, overseers.

The will of his widow, " Dame Brigitt Hussee," dated 23 Sept., 1557, and proved in London 2 May, 1558, requests her exe- cutors to execute the will of her former husband William Ernley. Bequests to her son Richard Ernley when 21, son John Ernley, and daughters Katherine and Alice ; to cousin Anthony Hussee of London, cousin Laurence Hussee, sister (-in-law) Katherine Apesley, cousin George's eldest son, cousin Thomas Mychell of Hillwith, sister Jane Moore, and brother (-in-law) John Hussey. Cousin George Goring, Lawrence Hussey, George Fennor, and Avery Mychell exe- cutors. Richard Fulmerston and Anthony Hussey, Esq., overseers.

Dame Bridget, who is not named by Dallaway, was the second wife of Sir Henry. She was daughter to Thomas Spring of Lavenham, Suffolk. Her first husband,. William Ernley of Ernley and Cackham, Sussex, died in 1545, and the Ernley Visita- tion pedigree shows that he left by his wife two sons, Richard and John, and two daughters, Katherine and Alice, all of whom are mentioned in their mother's will, the eldest son being under age.

With some reserve, I venture to suggest that " my two sons " whose wardship Sir Henry Hussey left to his wife were not his sons by his first wife^ but the two sons of that wife by William Ernley. It is highly improbable that a son in wardship in 1555 would in less than eight years afterwards die
