About the Hussey surname

The earliest records of the Hussey line start about 940 AD. Husseys were originally Scandinavians. As they moved through Europe they became Danes who invaded northern France and, settling there, adapted to the French language and customs and were then called Normans. The Hussey family name is said to have been Touasi de Hosa. German and French versions render it as de Hoese and de Hosey. In early medieval England the name Hussey was usually spelled Hose. In the Latin form it was Hosatus. During the thirteenth century it tended to evolve into Hoese, later to Huse and Husee and ultimately to Hussey. In the Irish language Hussey is Mac Eodhasa (mack-oh-saa) masculine and Nic Eodhasa (nic-oh-saa) feminine.
