Christopher Hussey
Birth: 1598
Mole Valley District
Surrey, England
Death: 1686
Nantucket County
Massachusetts, USA

Although the memorial marker here bears his name, Christopher is probably not buried on Nantucket. Although he was an early landowner here, others have noted that he is reportedly buried in Hampton, NH.

From user "flgrl": Born & baptized in Dorking, Surrey, England. Son of JOHN HUSSEY & Mary Wood. As a young man in Holland, he met Theodate Batchilder. Christopher,his new wife Theodate and her father & family Rev. Stephen Batchilder sailed for America in 1632 on the ship 'WILLIAM & FRANCIS'. 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.]. Christopher Hussey was the father of 3 boys and 3 girls.
