52 Ancestors - Christopher Hussey #5

Christopher Hussey from Dorking, Surrey, England came to Lynn, Massachusetts in 1633. He was baptized in Dorking, Surrey on February 18, 1598/9, son of John and Mary (Wood) Huseey.  He moved to Newbury sometime before 1638 and to Hampton, New Hampshire in 1639. He became a freeman on May 14, 1634. He died in March 1685/6 in Hampton, New Hampshire.

He served a deputy for Hampton to the Massachusetts General Court in 1658, 1659, and 1660.

He was granted the right to perform marriages in Hampton on October 18, 1659. He also was granted the right to settle small causes for Hampton several times over the course of his time there. He was a lieutenant and then captain of the train band at Hampton.

Christopher Hussey was married twice. First to Theodate Bachiler by 1635 and second to Ann (Capon) Mingay on December 9, 1658 in Hampton. Theodate was born about 1610 and was the daughter of Stephen Bachiler. Theodate died in the eighth month of 1649 in Hampton. Ann was the widow of Jeffrey Mingay and Ann outlived Christopher, dying on June 24, 1680 in Hampton.
