I have just one example of this name in my ancestry,
Anne HUSGATE married John STRANGE on 06 NOV 1775 in Caversham, Oxfordshire.
This study includes all known variants, results are as of 21st November 2007:
HUSGATE Under investigation
HUSGETT New version found on IGI, one reference only
USGATE Two Google search references found.
UZGATE No references found on Google search.

The following baptisms, marriages and burials are the sum total of the Family Search worldwide results from the front page for these four variants, there are more (total of only 100) from the dedicated IGI search and these have yet to be extracted. All the results are from the British Isles region; there are no results from all other regions. Not yet completed this list.

Modern day reference
I was amazed to see a reference on minutes available on the internet (source no longer available) of a meeting concerning modernisation of fire services in the Norwich area on 18th March 2002 to a Ms. P. Husgate of the Norwich Community Forum, so the name was not extinct.
I hope for more to come soon!
