I know it was a long while since you posted your request but I have only just read it.
I am told by an old aunt of mine that the Bussey line that I am from has some origins in Middleton-in-Teesdale and I myself still live in County Durham.
I may not be of much help to you but just for your interest here's what I am told:

At some time in the past the Busseys that I am from were people of some means and that there was a place in Middleton-in-Teesdale called "Bussey's Mart" or "Bussey's Market"? (I have not confirmed this yet)

At some point a Will was contested which involved some Bussey's returning from AMERICA for the contest.
Unfortunately for me I am from the arm of the family that lost the contest and therefore my immediate ancestors were relatively poor - Not that there's anything wrong with that!
There is quite a coal mining pedigree in my family (County Durham was a big coal mining area). This is interesting because the majority of Busseys I see on the Middleton-in-Teesdale Census from the mid-1700's to mid-1800's were born to fathers listed as miners (lead not coal I think)
There are a lot of "Thomas" Busseys on that Census and my Grandfather was Thomas, as was my father's twin brother

As I said none of this is likely to be of use, but it's just what I know/am told
It is my intention at some stage in the future to research further, I stumbled upon your post while looking at what websites may be available to help me

Here's a link to the census website

Good Luck!
