Notes

Thomas Cushing was born on 14 May 1512 in Hardingham, Norfolk. He married Ursula Edwards on 2 August 1537 in his hometown. He died on 8 April 1588 in Hardingham, Norfolk, having lived a long life of 75 years.
IMPORTANT: Follow URSULA his wife and HP01 for the House of Plantagenet Kings and Queens of England
At the same time as a decendant named John Cushing married Mary Forby another John married a Mary Bagge. As both are later refered to as Mary this can be just a little confusing.

Fron the same parish records......

Name: Mary Bagge
Gender: Female
Spouse: John
Child: John Cushing

Name: Mary Forbey
Gender: Female
Spouse: John
Child: John Cushing

Norfolk, England, Church of England Baptism, Marriages, and Burials, 1535-1812 for Mary Cushing Norfolk Shipdham
1558-1804

I have added an option below (click on NICOLAS Alternative as the wife) for the route to Mary Bagge, however, the thread from Mary Bagge forwards does not then match the family bible records UNLESS the children shown under Mary Forbey ARE from Mary Bagge not Forbey........ As they are not alive to ask them and there are only family bible records showing it was Mary Forby not Bagge I am showing both routes on the tree as a safty measure.

I am as certain as I can be that it follows the PETER path NOT Nicholas his brother.
Explore son PETER for other codes to follow.
CU01

CU01 follows the direct male Cushing line. Dates before 1500 are usually approximate as births and deaths were often not registered only names of children. I have used Wills, graves, encyclopaedia references, books and web sources such as Wikipedia and have only recorded on this tree plausible dates, the web is unfortunately full of impossible records!
AC01

Going back (ancestors) to go forward (descendants of those ancestors) so to speak and not a direct ancestor but a cousin (removed) follow AC01 to Lt. Col. Alonzo Hersford Cushing Captain of Battery A, 4th US Artillery in Battle of Gettysburg. Dates before 1500 are usually approximate as births and deaths were often not registered only names of children. I have used Wills, graves, encyclopaedia references, books and web sources such as Wikipedia and have only recorded on this tree plausible dates, the web is unfortunately full of impossible records!
AG01

Follow the line AG01 to reach Caleb Cushing the Attorney General of the US under President Franklin Pierce.
WB01

Follow WB01 to William Baker Cushing another US Civil War Hero. Dates before 1500 are usually approximate as births and deaths were often not registered only names of children. I have used Wills, graves, encyclopaedia references, books and web sources such as Wikipedia and have only recorded on this tree plausible dates, the web is unfortunately full of impossible records!
CA02

Follow CA02 to Col Job Cushing (1869 – 1944) of the Cushing's Regiment of Militia (also known as the 6th Worcester County Militia Regiment) called up at Westborough, Massachusetts on August 16, 1777, as reinforcements for the Continental Army during the Saratoga Campaign. The regiment marched quickly to join the gathering forces of General Horatio Gates as he faced British General John Burgoyne in northern New York. The regiment served in Brigadier General Jonathan Warner's brigade. With the surrender of Burgoyne's Army on October 17, the regiment was disbanded on November 29, 1777.
LS01

Follow LS01 Luther Stearns Cushing (1803–1856) who was the author of one of the earliest works on parliamentary procedure, "Rules of Proceeding and Debate in Deliberative Assemblies" commonly known as Cushing's Manual.
Thomas Cushyn / Cushing (1512 - 1588), Thomas of Hardingham, second son of John Cushing of Hardingham. He inherited the homestead of his father with all the lands pertaining thereto.
There is some debate about the records which show Ursula as the mother of Peter as she was 43 years of age when he was born. It is true that woman's fertility peaks between the late teens and late-20s after which it starts to decline slowly. While many sources suggest a more dramatic drop at around 35 this is unclear, since few studies have been conducted since the 19th century. One 2004 study of European women found fertility of the 27–34 and the 35–39 groups had only a four-percent difference. At age 45, a woman starting to try to conceive will have no live birth in 50–80 percent of cases but can still give birth. Ursula was 43 and it is unlikely that Peter was the son of another John and Ursula in the same place of birth.
AL001

AL001 Leads to Abraham Lincoln. OK just a family link via a marriage, but Sarah Lincoln (an ancestor of Abraham Lincoln) married a Cushing descendant Daniel Cushing. The Cushing and Lincoln families were close friends living in Hingham and Wymondham back in the 1600s. If you explore Sarahs father he was involved in King Philip's War which was an armed conflict in 1675–1676 between indigenous inhabitants of New England and New England colonists and their indigenous allies. The war is named for Metacom, the Wampanoag chief who adopted the name Philip because of the friendly relations between his father Massasoit and the Mayflower Pilgrims.
