  • Notes 
    • Christopher and Theodate had five children, not 6 as reported by Savage and Dow. There was no son named Joseph. This error derives from Dow's list of representatives from Hampton to the General Court, which gives a Joseph Hussey in 1672, a misreading for Christopher Hussey. Christopher's death is recorded as [7?] by TGMB:1050 and sixth by GDMNH. The record in HVR 1:9 reads: "C[torn]pt Christepher Hussy Died the S[torn]t of day of march 1685 or 1686 being about 90 years of Age was Entred the eighth of march 1685 or 1686."
