PUSEY, Edward Bouverie (1800-82) The second child of Philip Pusey (1748-1828) and Lucy Sherard. An Anglican clergyman and scholar, Pusey matriculated at Oxford as a member of Christ Church in 1819. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1822, and his Master of Arts degree in 1825. In 1829, he was appointed to the chair of the regius professor of Hebrew in Oxford and as canon of Christ Church, Oxford. It was in the 1820s that Pusey came under the growing influence of John Keble and (the future) St. John Henry Cardinal Newman. In fact, Pusey authored a couple of religious tracts — one on fasting around this period.
