This is fascinating that you know of a Horsey family tracking back as far as the 1100's, as well as your knowledge of them in England. Myself, I am a gggg ggg grandson of a Stephen Horsey, Sr. who was quite famous in the early colonial days of Northampton Co., Virginia and then Somerset Co., Maryland in the U.S. He moved to Somerset Co., MD about 1661/62 to escape an anti Quaker religion environment then in Virginia. He had been a co-founder of the Quaker movement in Northampton Co., Virginia. His name first appeared in that County about the year 1643 as 'Stephen Horse' in a Headright claim for land of the person who transported him into that County. Stephen was born somewhere in England about the year 1620 and died and was buried on his plantation in Somerset Co., Maryland in August 1671. He and his wife Sarah had seven children, including five sons: Stephen Jr., Samuel Sr. (my ancestor), John, Nathaniel Sr., and Isaac Horsey. This family has many descendant researchers in the U.S.; (for several generations this was one of the major families of the Maryland Lower Delmarva region in the Colonial days), but none seem to know who Stephen Horsey, Sr.'s parents were or just where in England he came from. At one time an L.D.S. database had listed his father as also being named Stephen, but this entry was years ago and there are mistakes in this database - some quite BIG mistakes, so I take that 'with a grain of salt' 9-). Have you any information or clues ?? Any info much appreciated..
