    "History of Harting" (page 28) "the Husseys' tenure of Harting extended from the days of the first King Henry to the last, and that with scarcely an exception every head of the family bore the Royal Christian name. In the second Henry's reign the first Henry Hussey founded Durford Abbey, on the banks of the Rother, and hard by it a house of lepers, and a 'culver,' or dovehouse, found in connection with religious houses in so many other instances. In his confirmation of his father's gift the second Henry Hussey refers by name to the Church at Harting." It is further stated that "Sir Henry Hussey, the sixth of that name, was with the flower of chivalry at Agincourt, and was fitly selected to guard Rouen, when after six month's siege Henry V. had won it in 1418."

    Henry Hussey, son of Henry Hussey and Margaret Hussey, was
    born about 1387, probably at Saperton manor, Wiltshire.  He
    inherited Saperton manor and Standen Hussey manor from his
    father at his death in 1409 and was referred to as Sir Henry
    Hussey.  He also received title to Hascombe manor, Surrey, in

    He was married before December 9, 1413, wife's name
    Constance, according to "Ancient Petitions."  Appearing in
    1413 in "Patent Rolls" was the following entry: "Reference to
    Sir Henry Husee lately granting South Morton manor and West
    Whitenham manor, in Berkshire, to Thomas Bekyngham of
    Oxfordshire for life, at a rent of 10 pounds a year--on provision
    that if Constance Husee, his wife, be dowered in the manors
    after his death they render her 10 marks annually."

    She was apparently a lady-in-waiting at the court of the king.
    Henry Hussey "had a protection April 23, 1423 on going to the
    General Council in the retinue of the Bishop of Winchester as
    Sir Henry Husee of Harting manor," according to "Syllabus of
    Rymer's Faedera."  He was Knight of the Shire for Sussex in
    1423 and 1425, according to "Complete Peerage."  "Sir
    Henry Hussey and others held an inquisition in Sussex May 4,

    On June 19, 1430 there was an "inspeximus and confirmation
    by Parliament in his favor, as kinsman and heir of Matthew
    Hoese" of a charter dated June 28, 1252, being a grant to
    Matthew Hussey from King Henry III of free warren on
    Harting manor.  In 1435 he "made a settlement upon Constance
    Hussey," according to "Complete Peerage."

    Sir Henry Hussey and others, including the Earl of Huntingdon
    and the Earl of Northumberland, were ordered February 12,
    1438 "to array men at arms and archers dwelling near the sea
    because the king's traitors and rebels of Flanders had united
    with other enemies to invade England," according to "Patent
    Rolls."  He was appointed by the king March 4, 1438 to assist
    with an inquiry into smuggling in Kent.

    In 1438 Walter Bedel sued Sir Henry Hussey of Hascombe manor for usurping rents of Ashhurst manor, according to "History of Surrey."  In the following year Walter Bedell, keeper of Ashhurst manor and park, took proceedings against Sir Henry Hussey for usurping the profits of Ham manor.  In 1439-40 Henry Hussey mortgaged his property to John Greville, according to "History of Gloucestershire."  On July 5, 1439 license was given "to Sir Henry Husee, the elder, of South Herting, Sussex and his wife, Constance, to dispose of Great Risindon manor and Saperton manor in Gloucestershire," according to "Patent Rolls."

    Henry Hussey died January 30, 1449-50.  Constance Hussey died October 19, 1461 and was buried in the chapel of All Saints, Friars Minors, London.
    Children born to them include:
