Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historical Somerset which covers the History of Somerset and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Somerset - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

  • Hugh de Hull 1457-1379)
  • William Hussey (c.1030-1086) from Normandy, died in Somerset. It is presumed that he accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of England and participated in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It is suggested that he held land in Somersetshire, probably Sanford Manor, as his portion of the spoils of conquest. He and his brother, Walter Hussey were listed as residents of Somersetshire in 1080 living in the vicinity of Bath, according to "Doomesday Book".
