Christopher was one of the first settlers of Hampton, New Hampshire. 1639, Christopher Hussey was made Justice of the Peace. He also held office of town clerk & was a deacon in the church. He was one of the original "purchasers" of Nantuckett. Christopher Hussey was also a Sea Captain [and first whaler to take a sperm whale -- G.D.].
