FORSEY Family History

This interesting and unusual surname with variant spellings Fursey, Fussey and Fuzzey is of topographical origin. It is derived from the old English pre 7th Century "fyrs" meaning furse and "(ge)haeg" an enclosure; hence "dweller by the furze covered enclosure". The surname is first recorded in the early part of the 15th Century, (see below). John Fursey is registered in the Musters of Surrey (1583) and Roger Fursey is noted in the Protestation Returns for Devon (1642). Early recordings of the surname include Charlotte, daughter of John Forsey, who was christened on October 1630 at St.
