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.

Christopher,his new wife Theodate and her father & family Rev. Stephen Batchilder sailed for America in 1632 on the ship 'WILLIAM & FRANCIS'.

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.].
