      I have never seen any credible evidence that Apphia's surname was Hughes. Seems to be an urban myth. Also, while Richard Bushrod purchased land in Westmoreland Co, there's no evidence he lived, died, or was buried there. In fact, all records for him say he was "of" Gloucester or York Co. In the last record that mentions him, dtd in 1670 after his death, Henry Whiting brought suit in Gloucester Co in right of his wife Apphia, widow of "Richard Bushrod of York County."
