This Family history is from the research of Barnabas Fuzessery 1897-1971. His research in Latin was translated into Hungarian and then English. I have added historical and geographical reference links as an aid to the research.

A Family tribe in the Arpad Army defeated a Bulgarian tribal chief Zalan in the area then called Fuzeser. The Family tribe took over that land and changed their old tribal name to match the new land which they just won.
The literal translation is this:
It still remains questionable how FUZESERI became FUZESSERY. Hopefully, further research will solve this.
The Family tribe were successful in another war campaign against the Romanian Kangar Gyula (military leader and King of the Olah and Dacsa), and took over Transylvania. One of the Fuzessery brothers settled there in the City of Tovis , Romania, which now is in the County of Alba. Again, the adding of the "i" after Tovis meant "comming from or belonging to Tovis" so the family name became Fuzessery-Tovisi.
A desendant of the Family Tribe came Commander Peter Fuzessery-Tovisi 1264-1298 + Miss Detaris ?-1298
In 1401 a local feudal Lord Istvan Debroi of Transylvania along with Peter Fuzessery and sons' Istvan, Laszo, Denes and with Jakab Fuzessery led an uprising against King Zsigmond (Sigismund I)  of Hungary and lost. As a result, the Fuzesserys forfeited all their land in Fuzeser back to King Zsigmond.
Around 1423 the loyal Fuzessery families and Janos Fuzessery-Tovisi (Chief Justice of Tovis), and Peter Berenyi of Transylvania protected King Zsigmond of Hungary and as a result, King Zsigmond gave the forfeited land from the unloyal Fuzessery Families to Janos's son Belazs Fuzessery-Tovisi who starts the main branch of the Family Fuzessery-Tovisi in this time. A group of Fuzessery-Tovisi's lived in Zemplen  until a local war started and many of the Fuzessery-Tovisi family members died.
There were now 3 groups of tribes:
