Keri,
Your information is basically correct. The immigrating ancestor of the Hustis/Huestis family was Robert Husted/Hustis from England. He arrived first in Braintree, MA, the Fairfield Co, CT. His son went into Westchester Co, NY and the family has grown since then. Various surname spelling associated to the immigrant Robert are:
Husted
Hustis
Huestis
Heustis
Hustace
Hustes
Hustus
Huesties

There were several Hustis/Huestis family members that fled to Canada during/after the Revolutionary war due to their loyality to England. In Canada they received land grants in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and most are listed in the Loyalist registration lists for the areas.

Should you need additional help, please feel free to contact me direct at in_retro@yahoo.com.
