family pedigree, found at Sand, the ancestor of the Huyshes, of Tetton, in the parish of Kingston, and of “thos other Huyshes about Taunton; and so of RICHARD Huyshe, who
Iyeth buried in Taunton.” There seems no reason for doubting the truth of this statement. Richard Huyshe's will proves his affinity to the Huyshes, of Doniford and Sand, and the rest of his pedigree is fully confirmed by substantial evidence. The above named RICHARD HUYSHE was of New Inn
in 1589. He died without issue, and bequeathed his property in the Blackfriars, London, and in Taunton, to trustees, for the maintenance of an Alnis House in Taunton, for aged men,
with preference to any poor among his kindred, and for exhibitions at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, to young men of his name and kindred, or of his kindred only, and in default of these, to young men born in the counties of Somerset and Devon.
The full particulars of this charity are to be found in the fifth volume of the Charity Commissioners' Reports. The privileges thus attached to his kindred, make it an act ofjustice to record all that can be gathered respecting his connections. But no detailed pedigree of this branch of the family appears ever to have been formed, and those interested in the enquiry must be referred to the collections that are to be deposited in the Alms House, Taunton, by the Rev. Francis Huysbe, and to some MSS. recently added to the library of the College of Arms, where the result of an examination of wills and parish registers will be found. Richard Huyshe married Ebbot, daughter of William Lovel, esq. of Bishops Lydiard, in Somersetshire, and heir to her brother, John Lovel. She was relict of James Clarke, esq. of Norton Fitzwarren. Her will, in which she is described as of Norton Fitzwarren, was proved in the Archdeacon's Court, Taunton, in 1628, but is lost.
