#131. Hendrick Ollesson Tussey (Bochten, Brandywine hundred, L100): On 16 April 1688, Hendrick 'Toulson' sold his father's 100-acre tract to his stepfather, Thomas Jones. On 20 May 1688, a warrant was issued to resurvey Verdrietige Hook for the purpose of dividing it among its owners. The resulting resurvey, dated 10 November 1688, showed the tract to be 827-1/2 acres and awared the northernmost fifth (165-1/2 acres) to Henry 'Toarson.' Sixty acres of adjoining marsh were surveyed for Henry 'Toarson,' Jacob Clementsson (#134), and John and Peter Mouns (#129-130) on 9 May 1690. On 15 August 1700 Henry and John 'Tussey' protested that they had been wrongfully charged in 1694 for quitrents on another 100 acres belonging to Benjamin Stedham. Thereafter, Tussey or Tossawa became the family surname. Hendrick died by 1702. The name of his wife, who was still living in 1699, is unknown. According to deeds executed in 1703 by his heirs, he was survived by six children: Henry, John, Margaret, Matthias, Olle and Stephen Tussey. By 1693, John was married and living next door. Two sons were residing with Hendrick's mother (#133). Another two resided with Hendrick, and Margaret was probably married.
