Henry Hussey was married about 1290, to an Isabel. He was summoned to Parliament on 24 June 1295 and was returned for the following 30 years. He was known as Lord Hussey from 1295.

He was summoned for military service by King Edward I on July 16, 1294 in the putting down of a rebellion in Gascony and "to attend the king wherever he might be". He volunteered his service for the defence of the English coast in 1296 as a knight of Chichester. He thereafter engaged in military service against Scotland in 1297, 1299, and 1301. Henry was ordered "to remain in the North during the winter campaign" in the war against Scotland in 1315.
