About Ann Hussey

Jan Garretson, whose wife's name was Ann, had lived in the New Castle vicinity since the time of the Dutch control of the area. He had come to Delaware from Gelderland in Holland, sometime between 1657 and 1664. His will, which was dated 1694, mentions three sons, Garret, Casparius, and Cornelius, as well as daughters.76 While there is no record that Jan Garretson was a member of Friends, his sons Garret and Casparius were members. Garret Garretson married Charity Hussey, a younger daughter of John and Rebecca Hussey. Casparius Garretson seems to have married Ann Cox, likely a close relative of William Cox, in whose home the first gatherings of Hockessin Meeting were held in 1730. After the death of Casparius Garretson, Ann (Cox) Garretson married Nathan Hussey, son of John Hussey, Jr. Thus the Garretson and Hussey families became much intertwined.
