    Subject: The Other William Moseley (Lower Norfolk)


    Just a tid bit on the other William Moseley born about 1605 who married
    Susannah Burnett etc.

    Everyone says his parents were Richard Moseley and Katherine Smith. If so here
    is there marriage license from ALLEGATIONS OF MARRIAGE LICENSES Issued By The
    DEAN AND CHAPTER of WESTMINSTER, 1558 to 1699 Also for those issued by the
    VICAR=GENERAL of the ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY 1660 to 1679 extracted by (the
    late) Col. Joseph Lemuel Chester, LLD., and Edited by Geo. J. Armytage, F.S.A.
    Honorary Secretary to the Haleian Society.

    "September 21, 1604 Richard Moseley, of he City of Westminster, Cooke, &
    Katherine Smith, of same, Spinster; at St. Margarets, Westminster."

    I don't know if a cook was as high a trade as a Leatherseller or Merchant
    Tailor. I have seen several sources say that Lower Norfolk William was from
    Staffordshire. His parents probably were and he may have been born there. Our
    Essex William's parents were married and from London but he was born in
    Condover/ Wroxeter Shropshire, which are actually really close to
    Staffordshire. By the way I googled mapped both Wroxeter and Condover and they
    are within five to ten miles of each other.



    WARNING some of following Jim White of MO is confirmed as fake/false made-up:
    There is one odd characteristic that you'll commonly see in that tainted data,
    the location Garswood, Lancashire. If you ever see that attached to a Buckner
    in a database, you can be pretty sure that it (A) ultimately derived from this
    book and (B) is fake. I've spent a lot of time looking through real Lancashire
    records, and if there ever were any Buckners in Garswood, they must have gone
    through a lot of trouble to avoid having any one make records of them. ;

    I had to look at st margaret's Church in Westminster, Midddlesex England,
    because there was a discrepancy between what G. Andrews Moriarty article pub.
    in VA more than 1/2 century ago had said----- versus what you had said about
    location of 1606 wm moseley baptism.

    So I checked LDS FHLibrary microfilm 0908519, film items 1 and 2
    a compiled book of the parish records [LDS FHL didn't seem to list the original
    parish records themselves as available there]
    "Memorials of St. Margaret's Church Westminster" "comprising the parish
    registers 1539-1660 and the church wardens accounts 1460-1603," edited by
    Arthur Meredyth Burke F.S.A. published ca 1974 in London, England by Eyre &
    Spottiswoode; Mr. Burke is also "author of Indexes to Ancient Testamentary
    of Westminster" [which might contain an index to the parish records?, as this
    microfilm seems to have no indexing in the parts of items 1 and 2 that I saw]

    [I've integrated marriage, bapt and burial records chronologically, but they
    are separate lists on the microfilm]
    [note that the calendar entries are listed jan through Dec, even though, in my
    memory, most calendars for British Empire before 1752, the date sequence of one
    calendar year usually ran from [equivalent of a new years day] Ladies Day march
    25, through the following march march 24.]

    reading of the original, or modern re-writing--but I list here just what
    actually appears in the above book on microfilm]

    had expected to find it]

    Subject: Re: Thank you for Wm Moseley of London 1500's!
    Date: Sunday, October 26, 2008 11:43 AM

    Hello Warren,

    The descendants of Humphrey Moseley did not immigrate to Virginia through the
    mid 1700s to where the pedigree runs for the Humphrey Moseley family. His
    pedigree is included in the Visitations of London, Book 2, which pushes his
    ancestors to the late 1400s. There are two blatantly wrong facts in the
    presumed proofs used by early Moseley family researcher, Charles W. Sutton -
    The Humphrey Moseley who died before August 4, 1592 and buried in London was
    not born until 1532, and the lady he married Margaret Higham was christened
    November 23, 1541 at Solihull, Warwickshire, England - Her parents are not
    identified in Parish Records at Solihull. The data presented by Charles W.
    Sutton was totally rejected by the Staffordshire Archivists based on a letter
    written to them February 23, 1893, which letter is still extant and on file at
    the Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service at the William Salt Library. The follow-up
    letter by the clerk at the Stoke-on-Trent Archive Service dated February 25,
    1893 is quite explicit in that, there is no historical record of a Samuel
    Moseley ever being an inhabitant of Staffordshire. The killer of that ancient
    false record very easily proved it was totally fraudulent by the Will of
    Humphrey Moseley Sr., the father of Humphrey Moseley Jr. that married Margaret
    Higham was proved in Court 1570, and specifically identified Humphrey Jr. as
    born in, and living in Moseley, Warwickshire, England at the time his father
    wrote his will. Humphrey Jr. who married Margaret Higham had two sons, Humphrey
    III and Henry - Henry was the Prebendary of Solihull Warwickshire - Henry
    married Anne Marshall, his will proved 1691, and his wife's will proved 1692.
    One of Henry's daughters, Dorothy, was identified as a lunatic in her father's
    will and lived to be nearly 100 years of age. According to Parish Registers at
    Wolverhampton the first burial of a Moseley anywhere in the local area was a
    Mr. Robert Moseley, a clergyman buried 1667.. One place of extreme interest is
    . the place where Margaret supposedly is buried - Please click on the following
    link and you will understand why Margaret is not buried there.. Link to
    Collegiate Church of Wolverhampton - LINK

    In addition, the date Margaret died is wrong as can be seen by her will
    information, included next..

    The will of Humphrey Moseley and his wife Margaret are both extant, and for
    believers in that old research, they should obtain copies of each (cost is
    3.8.10); the information to obtain them:

    Humphrey Moseley or Moseleye - Occupation - Secondary of the Wood Street
    Compter London - proved in London, Prerogative Court of Canterbury 4 August
    1592 - Reference No: 15920804 (the word Secondary means Humphrey was the Clerk
    of the Wood Street Compter Parish Church).

    Margaret Moseley - Occupation - Widow proved in London, Prerogative Court of
    Canterbury 3 February 1607 - Reference No: 16070203

    What I find purely strange is there is no mention of Richard Moseley, son of
    Humphrey and Margaret on the website you sent the link to - The site has all of
    the children but one, which was Richard that we proved direct from the parish
    registry of Saint Nicholas Cole Abbey Parish Church, London - what follows was
    taken directly from our transcript of the parish records..

    i. Henry 14 Apr 1559 died and buried 13 Nov 1560

    ii. Richard 09 Jul 1560

    iii. Mary 02 Jul 1561

    iv. William 22 Feb 1562

    v. Joane 30 Nov 1565

    vi. Clement 19 Aug 1567

    vii. Anne 30 Nov 1658

    viii John 01 Oct 1571

    Also thought it interesting to note, but one of their children married at Saint
    Nicholas Cole Abbey - Joane married John Bean there February 6, 1586..

    So far as William Moseley who died 1655 Lower Norfolk County Virginia - No
    doubt he married Susanna Burnett in Rotterdam where their marriage contract is
    extant. He was the son of Richard Moseley born 1579 at Boothstown, Worsley,
    Lancashire, England. Richard married Katherine Smith September 24, 1604 St.
    Margaret Parish, Westminster, Middlesex, England. Richard Moseley was the son
    of Edward Moseley III, Esquire - Edward was educated in the Middle Temple where
    he was tutored by Humphrey Plowden Esquire until his death 1557 and finished
    his education under Edmund Plowden Esquire (Humphrey's son). Edward was made
    barrister-at-law 1564 in London. Edward received a Crown appointment as
    Escheator, and eventually was the Attorney General of Lancashire - He was the
    nephew of Sir Nicholas Moseley of Hough End Hall, Manchester, Lancashire.


    [P.S. sent a day or two later, also during october 2008: ]
    One proof for William is, his father, Richard, apprenticed him as a goldsmith
    in London for seven years when Richard become sick and wrote his will - William
    and his brother Joseph both were apprenticed to Henry Ringwold of the
    Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. Joseph was a full year older than William..;

    deposition to notary/court of 30 nov 2008 in Rotterdam, Holland, Netherlands
    What is your occupation and how old are you? - In Dutch: Wat uw beroep is en
    hoe oud u zijn

    William's response was: Ik ben een goudsmid en ongeveer oud 34 jaar - In
    English: I am a goldsmith and about 34 years of age..

    Considering his christening December 17, 1606, had William been born on that
    date he would have been roughly 33.5 years of age on May 30, 1640 [probably a
    typo for 30 nov 1640, the well-known date of deposition by William Moseley]:

    Richard was not born 1570. He was born 1579 at Boothstown, Worsley Lancashire
    England. He had one older brother, William, educated at Cambridge, ordained.
    His information follows - He was the "Leather Seller in London" after he
    resigned from the ministry - Follows is his data-

    Cambridge University Alumni, 1261-1900 about William Moseley

    Name: William Moseley

    College: KING'S

    Entered: 1582

    More Information: Adm. at KING'S (age 16) a scholar from Eton, Sept. 1, 1582.
    Of London. Matric. 1582; B.A. 1586-7; M.A. 1590. Fellow, 1585-92. One of these
    names preb. of Wells. Will (P.C.C.) 1617.


    William served in various capacities at the famed Wells Cathedral from
    ordination 1582 until resignation 1608 when he removed to London due to his
    health. His positions included that of Prebendary. His mentor was Bishop
    Gilbert Berkeley whose daughter Ann was William's first wife.

    Richard and his 1st wife did not have a son named William - There is neither
    parish register entry for christening nor burial.

    Richard and Ellen had the following two children:

    George c: 13 Mar 1600 - Saint Margaret, Westminster died in infancy

    Christian c: 17 Feb 1604 - Saint Margaret, Westminster died in infancy

    Richard and Katherine had the following four children, Henry and his twin
    Joseph was born at Westminster-

    Henry b: 17 Jul c: 27 Jul 1605 Twin died and buried 28 Jul 1605 - Saint
    Margaret, Westminster

    Joseph b: 17 Jul 1605 Henry's Twin - born in Westminster, but never christened
    that we can prove-

    William b: 17 Dec 1606 - Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

    Margaret - Born 17 Feb 1608 - Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

    George and Christian both died before Henry and Joseph were born, and buried at
    the Bridewell Hospital. Richard and Katherine removed to Rotterdam to escape
    the dire weather circumstance in England, hopefully where their children might
    have a chance to survive. In London during the time of concern here, birth rate
    survival was less than 30% for newborn babies, and no better than 70% for their
    mothers.. There are no records for Richard and Katherine before Richard's
    death August 29, 1620 in Westminster -

    Richard's two wives -

    Ellen Ashley - c: 21 Feb 1575 - She was the daughter of Thomas Ashley and his
    wife, Anna Phipps - Her parents married March 23, 1574 at Saint Mary Parish
    Church, Higham Near Gravesend, Kent, England.

    Katherine Smith - c: December 20, 1580 St. James Clerkenwell Parish,
    Clerkenwell Middlesex - She was the daughter of Edmund Smyth and his wife,
    Joane Green of Clerkenwell - Her parents married July 5, 1575 at Christ Church
    Greyfriars Newgate Parish, London.

    Richard's surviving children-

    Concerning the apprenticeships of Joseph & William - Source: London
    Apprenticeship Abstracts 1442-1850 - There are a variety of methods to
    validate their records, and you will not learn much, but prove the . person .
    that apprenticed them, to whom apprenticed, and date when term is finished.

    Joseph came to Virginia and made the Jamestown Muster of 1624 - Proof follows-

    44; Elinor Harris 21. Dead in this plantation: one Armestronge.


    Joseph's head right claimed December 29, 1637 by Daniel Gookins in a Virginia
    Land Grant of 2500 Acres in New Norfolk County, Virginia.


    Joseph married Marie Booth at Jamestown - She was the daughter of Reynold and
    Elizabeth Booth of Jamestown - She was about age 9 at the muster of 1624.
    Joseph and Marie returned to the family seat at Boothstown, Worsley Lancashire
    England before 1640 and the plantation he established was under the care of his
    1st cousin George Moseley who landed in Virginia per the following proof.

    The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1607-1776

    24 July 1635. Persons to be transported (from London) to Virginia by the
    Assurance of London, Mr. Isack Bromwell, after examination by the Minister of

    George Mosely age 20. (PRO:E157/20).

    George amassed considerable acreage in Lancaster and Northumberland County by
    1655 when he transported two sisters, Ann and Sarah Ryalls. We think it was a
    contracted double marriage made in England that brought the two ladies to
    Virginia - Anne, married his nephew George, and Sarah married his nephew

    Of course you have the information for William, the son of Richard and brother
    of Joseph, but their sister Margaret also married and immigrated to Virginia.
    Margaret married Richard Kemp February 17, 1626 St. Alphage Parish, London, ,
    Middlesex, England. They landed in Virginia before any of their children were
    born 1627, but returned to London with Joseph and Marie.

    Hope this helps,
