1720, Oct 301776, Feb 20
an English antiquary. From about 1750 he had devoted special attention to antiquities, chiefly through barrow-digging, and was also a good heraldist and genealogist, visiting about 160 parish churches in east Kent to copy monumental and armorial inscriptions. His papers were used by Edward Hasted for his History of Kent, who described him as living entirely rusticated at Heppington (Nichols, Lit. Illustr. iv. 649). Faussett formed a collection of more than five thousand Roman and English coins, most of which were sold at Sotheby's on 3 Dec. 1853.
