Dr Pusey’s surplice
Edward Bouverie Pusey (22 August 1800 – 16 September 1882), was an English churchman and Regius Professor of Hebrew at Christ Church, Oxford. With Keble and Newman, he was one of the leaders of the Oxford Movement and one of the most influential thinkers in the Church of England. He was born in the village of Pusey in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire). His father was Philip Bouverie (d. 1828), a younger son of Sir Jacob des Bouverie, 1st Viscount Folkestone, who had taken the name Pusey on inheriting the estate.
