Edward's death year is confused possibly by the Julian calendar applying at that time, and/or in the transcription of dates, here is the conflicting data.
Suffolk Burial Index & National Burial Index:
Edward Rushe 5 May 1548 Tannington (was this an infant death?)
Edward Rushe 12 Oct 1549 Tannington (taken as Edward Rushe [31766])

bullet  Research Notes:

Mike Fenn writes - 2019
Children of Edward Rushe
We know that son Thomas was baptised in Tannington in 1547 and daughter Hansard in 1548 but no sign of his other children Robert, Edward, Ann and Margaret named in Edward's will. We also have no dates for the baptism of John, William and Robert Browne. I am beginning to wonder if Edward Rushe and the father of the Browne children were born earlier than we envisage and hence the children were all born before 1540. We have Edward as born c1515-1520 but if so he died rather young in 1550 having sired six children two of whom are shown as baptised in Tannington and four still to be placed. None born in Tannington 1540 - 1546
A thought - could Margery have been Edwards 2nd wife and that Robert, Edward, Ann and Margaret are children of a 1st marriage? The names of all the children are listed in the findings of Charles Partridge and in Edward's will but we only have the names of two baptisms in Tannington. In the Suffolk Burial Index there is a total of six burials shown in Tannington and they are between 1548 and 1563 which makes me believe that Edward lived and was born elsewhere. There is no obvious clues in the Suffolk Burial Index bearing in mind that the parish records of many villages do not go back as far as 1540. We will never know the true position but it is possible that Robert, Edward, Ann and Margaret were baptised in an unknown village late 1530's early 1540's to a first wife of Edward Rushe. Worlingworth 1.8 miles from Tannington is a strong possibility but records don't begin until 1558. Yvonne in her report mentions a hand-drawn pedigree chart for a Robert Rushe of Worlingham starting in 1524. I had earlier considered him as a brother of Edward. Will look at on my next visit to Ipswich.

Possible burials of 'missing' children:
Robert Rushe - Tannington 1558
Edward Rushe - Not found
Ann Rush - Not found
Margaret - Married Thomas Huntynge 5 April 1566 in Thornham Magna
I will look in Dennington for missing baptisms 1540-1546 2.9 miles from Tannington
