The surname of HUSSER was originally a Norman name De Hose and became HUSSAR and HUSSEY in Ireland when it arrived in the early years of the Anglo-Norman conquest with the settlers who established themselves at Galtrim in the barony of Lower Deace, County Meath. A branch of the Galtrim families migrated to County Kerry where the name still survives. The Hussey families of Connacht are not of Norman Stock but descend from the sept O'hEodhusa which was located in County Fermanagh The surname is strongly represented in the south west of England, where it arrived in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. Early records of the name mention Geoffrey Husey, documented in Wiltshire in the year 1273. Hugo de Hussey of Rutland, was recorded during the reign of Edward I (1272-1307). John Evans and Judith Hussee were married in Canterbury in the year 1663. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. This was also an official name applied to a soldier. The HUSSARS were light-cavalry regiments, originating in Hungary in the 15th century. Most European armies have used HUSSARS for reconnaissance and raids. Their uniform included the characteristic dolman, a cloak worn hanging from the left shoulder. The name Hussar has now been adopted by some armoured units. Many Highland families migrated from Scotland to Ireland during the 17th and 18th centuries, and were granted the lands of the native Catholic Irish. People heard of the attractions of the New World, and many left Ireland to seek a better life sailing aboard the fleet of ships known as the 'White Sails', but much illness took its toll with the overcrowding of the ships which were pestilence ridden. From the port of entry many settlers made their way west, joining the wagons to the prairies, and many loyalists went to Canada about the year 1790, and became known as the United Empire Loyalists.
