Thomas Bushell

Mr Thomas Bushell was one of the gentleman that waited on Lord Chancellor Bacon. It was the fashion in those days for gentlemen to have their suits of clothes garnished with buttons. My lord Bacon was then in disgrace, and his man Bushell having more buttons than usual on his cloak, etc, they said that his Lord's breech made buttons and Bushell wore them : from whence he was called Buttoned Bushell .

died in 1674
