Pusey Horn

Looking back on the Pusey entries I was surprised to see the questions and answers about the "Pusey Horn" given to the family to signify the grant of land.

This was where the adage "A Horn of Land" originated. as this was often the method of sealing an entitlement to land by a king or a Tenant in Chief in saxon days.

The Pusaey family married into my family of Horne in Englefield in Berkshire, and the picture of the Pusey horn is featured in my book "Horn" page 24 along with the horn of Ulphus who presented his horn to York Minster rather than to his quarrelsome sons.
