  • ID: I33634
  • Name: Hugh HUSEE , of Normandy
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: Hugh /Hussey/, of Normandy
  • Birth: ABT 995 in Normandy, France
  • Note:
    The following is copied from Hussey Manuscripts at:

    A boot frequently appears in the various coats of arms of the Hussey families. It is suggested by John Horace Round in his "The King's Serjeants" [1911] that it was the boot or "hose" that gave the family its name. It is noted that the Husseys traditionally were boot butlers to the kings of England, and it is also noted that the Husseys were wine stewards to the royal families. [For details, see Berkshire section.]

    If it could be found in Round's scholarly research where a Hussey, a Hose, a de la Huse or a Hosatus served a king who drank wine from a boot, then all the problems as to the source of the Hussey name could be solved in one fell swoop [or swallow.]

    The earliest claimed progenitor of the Hussey family in Normandy is Hugh Hussey who in 1014 was married to a daughter of the third Earl of Normandy, who is conjectured to be a descendant of Rollo of Normandy.

    It is believed that children born to Hugh Hussey include:

    William Hussey born about 1030
    Walter Hussey born about 1035
    John Hussey born about 1040
    Hubert Hussey born about 1045
