Tully MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

A Lieutenant in the American Revolution. Abstract Princess Anne Wills, p.109
of Anne E. Maling 1994 book: mentions Tully's will in 1813. Lists daughter who
married a Hunter, daughter who married a Hynes and a son, James D. Moseley.
Princess Anne Will Bk 04: 49 Hillary Moseley died bef 7 aug 1826 with a sister
Eliza W. and half sisters Mary Ann and Annice. a witness was Jacob Hunter and
another T.E. Moseley.  The most obvious father is #4616 Tully. Apparently
Elizabeth W. and Hillary are the full siblings ---and Tully E. and Mary Ann and
Annice are the half siblings (to Hillary) children of #4616.  Since mom Amy
outlived Tully E. in 1833, we cannot believe Hillary was born before 1789
marriage of #4616 to Amy (and we are ignorant of a later Moseley marriage
for Amy).

Christopher W. MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Father Hillary left him slaves China and Isaac, and these names also appear
in the 1800 Christopher will Princess Anne Will Bk 02:140-141, 21 Mar 1800 - 5
May 1800: wife Margaret, son Francis under 21, daughter Mary, son William,
unborn child. Appoints as guardian of William, Solomon Butt (indicates a
relation to the Christopher who married Mary Butt?) appointed as executor John
Smyth, son of Solomon (apparently meaning Solomon Smyth because in Dec 1800 a
John Smith became executor). Christopher "son of Burroughs" in Bk 02:140
(above) is wrong, or else the slave names coincidence doesn't prove Hillary
was his father.
  1787 Tax List says his father had 2 boys age 16-20.


Hillery MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Pr. Anne Will Bk 02: 092,  1797 will of Hillary: no wife nor children
mentioned, so probably he wasn't the Hillary who md Eliz Whitehurst 1782.
1787 Tax List says his father had 2 boys age 16-20. so we conclude that the
(richmond va times dispatch 22 mar 1914 and ?succeeding issues)
children certainly (and maybe wife) mentioned for this hillery are just
confusion with his step mother Elizabeth Whitehurst and his half siblings born
to that step mom.

Anthony MOSELEY Gent. - planter

[moseley1.ged]

Princess Anne Co. Deed Bk 05:048, 27 Oct 1735/ 8 Jan 1735/6 will of #741
"Anthony Moseley...Planter" executor wife Frances, eldest daughter Ann,
daughter, Mary witnesses Palmer Moseley, Edward Peary. Princess Anne Deed Bk
04:241 in 1729 will of Thomas Scott abstract mentions "son-in-law Anthony and
daughter, Frances his  wife"
!SOURCES: Blankenship,  pages 297-317; Combs, pages 1-26; Walter charts.
Keeping the Anthony and Francis identities straight is difficult. Since
another Anthony is compiled as marrying Dinah Scott versus this one marrying
Frances Scott, there could be a mistake in one of the marriages possibly.
LDS microfilm #0001043 asserts a marriage also to a Margaret Gookin, but that
is surely a mistake as Richard Gookins 1000 page 1991 book lists only the one
ca 1660 Gookin to Moseley marriage line.
Our evidence tentatively says a Frances Scott married the one Anthony Moseley
--WHEREAS apparently the other contemporary Anthony Moseley married a Dinah
Scott.  This sounds more likely the result of confusion among the Scott family
and among the two Anthony Moseleys. However we can't yet resolve this
confusion.


Frances SCOTT

[moseley1.ged]

Death of Mrs. Frances Moseley from page 20 Creecy's Loose Papers. This is
slightly more likely to be #4531 Frances since this Frances was last mentioned
in Princess Anne Deed Bk 04:092 in 1726. However, from slaves mentioned in
05:048 (only one Amy) and from slaves mentioned on p. 20 of Loose Papers book
(5 slaves all apparently very expensive ca 50 pounds (tobacco? rather than
sterling). More likely #140 Frances would have 5 slaves since she was
apparently the sole heir of the sole heir of an oldest son, Arthur a large
land owner.


Mary MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

a mary ann moseley AFN 1WBM-01Q born maybe near 1750 of princess Anne co VA
(possibly) who married Tully Capps, was submitted AF97-111258 by Ora M. Smith
2633 N 22nd st Mesa AZ 85213.


Elizabeth MOSELEY

[moseley1.ged]

Pr ann co. Minute Bk 3: 183 of oct 1723 states there were 2 orphans of capt
wm moseley decd. And Min Bk 4: 247 of Dec 1734 names children Wm and Elizabeth.
At least son william b. 1714/16 was born too late to be child of 1st wife of Wm
moseley b.ca. 1686. THEREFORE WM B. CA 1686 HAD A LATER WIFE than eliz Thorogoo

further, and probably died before her father's will Deed Bk 5: 59 written 6
Mar 1735 [1736 by modern calendar] (Walter's charts, by mistake, read 1735 as
1705). Walter's Charts gives Stringer Moseley's birth as before 1705 is
incorrect, from mistake based upon Mrs. Walter's mistake of Princess Anne Deed
Bk 5: 59 will of Edward3Wm2Wm1 which she says written in 1705, whereas it was
actually in 1735/6.
Princess Anne Deed Bk 05:059, 6 Mar 1735/6 - 7 Apr 1736 will of Edward #705:
Two SEPARATE bequests: (1) the land Amos Moseley is renting "unto my Cousen
Anthony Moseley mariner his youngest son now living"--whose name is not given
but probably meant #4572 Francis, (2) to #4576 Edward, son of Capt. Francis, ..
.and also to him "the dept due to me from Francis Moseley Bricklayer" [see
Francis4Wm3Arthur2Wm1]. Other bequests: John son of (afore mentioned) cousen
Anthony, Wm son Capt Francis, brother John [#703], "Stringer Moseley son of
William Moseley Richard Moseley + Edwd Moseley son of Capt Francis". The last
two heirs we interpret as #4170 and #4576 because it doesn't say "sons" and
because #4170 Richard's brother Wm is mentioned just preceding him. Executors
Capt Francis Moseley, Chas Malbone, Arthur Sayer. Witnesses Wm Hopper, Antho:
Walke, Blandinah Moseley, Antho: Moseley.
 OTHER CHILDREN?: Mrs. Combs thinks Edward may have had a son William, and
LDS films 0001030-45 once or twice refer to son Capt. Hillary as "John Hillary
Moseley", but no original record was found justifying the existence of any
children for Edward besides Hillary and Elizabeth. Any such probably d. bef

Stringer , dtr of John Stringer , Hillary Moseley 1705, John 1707 all said to
be of Northampton Co VA. That place is reasonable, as Stringers were from from
there, but 1705 for Hillary is impossible: as he was born about 15 years
before that, or at least by 1 Feb 1703/4 Deed BK 1:378 Hillary's father gave
him gift in Princess Anne record. So we wouldn't pay too much attention to
this citation of Va Hist Mag 5: 330, since the source seems so far off on
Hilary's birth date.

Mar 1735 [1736 by modern calendar] (Walter's charts, by mistake, read 1735 as
1705). Walter's Charts gives Stringer Moseley's birth as before 1705 is
incorrect, from mistake based upon Mrs. Walter's mistake of Princess Anne Deed
Bk 5: 59 will of Edward3Wm2Wm1 which she says written in 1705, whereas it was
actually in 1735/6.
Princess Anne Deed Bk 05:059, 6 Mar 1735/6 - 7 Apr 1736 will of Edward #705:
Two SEPARATE bequests: (1) the land Amos Moseley is renting "unto my Cousen
Anthony Moseley mariner his youngest son now living"--whose name is not given
but probably meant #4572 Francis, (2) to #4576 Edward, son of Capt. Francis, ..
.and also to him "the dept due to me from Francis Moseley Bricklayer" [see
Francis4Wm3Arthur2Wm1]. Other bequests: John son of (afore mentioned) cousen
Anthony, Wm son Capt Francis, brother John [#703], "Stringer Moseley son of
William Moseley Richard Moseley + Edwd Moseley son of Capt Francis". The last
two heirs we interpret as #4170 and #4576 because it doesn't say "sons" and
because #4170 Richard's brother Wm is mentioned just preceding him. Executors
Capt Francis Moseley, Chas Malbone, Arthur Sayer. Witnesses Wm Hopper, Antho:
Walke, Blandinah Moseley, Antho: Moseley.
 OTHER CHILDREN?: Mrs. Combs thinks Edward may have had a son William, and
LDS films 0001030-45 once or twice refer to son Capt. Hillary as "John Hillary
Moseley", but no original record was found justifying the existence of any
children for Edward besides Hillary and Elizabeth. Any such probably d. bef

 LDS FHL Salt Lake Archive Family Group records, Joseph Smith Center Apr 1998
cites Va. Hist. Mag. vol.5 p.330 saying Ed Moseley 1661-1735, wife Frances
Stringer , dtr of John Stringer , Hillary Moseley 1705, John 1707 all said to
be of Northampton Co VA. That place is reasonable, as Stringers were from from
there, but 1705 for Hillary is impossible: as he was born about 15 years
before that, or at least by 1 Feb 1703/4 Deed BK 1:378 Hillary's father gave
him gift in Princess Anne record. So we wouldn't pay too much attention to
this citation of Va Hist Mag 5: 330, since the source seems so far off on
Hilary's birth date.

6 nov 2000 letter from Jane Stubbs Bailey 9502 Good Lion Rd Columbia
MD 21045-3948 citing Chowan Deed Bk W-1: 39 of 25 Feb 1702/3 and p. 66 of 29
June 1706.  p.39: Margaret m Hoffman abstract #77 mentions col edward moseley
of pr ann co VA only surviving executor of mr thomas walke...merchant of co. of
norfolk in Va. decd. Will Druckenfield was to pay Moseley money at Walke's
former residence on Eastern branch of Eliz River in [Princess Anne Co.] in Va.
p.66 abstract #134 says similar things but is much, much less detailed;
Forsythe concludes that Walke and Moseley were basically absentee owners of NC
land. More importantly, there is no evidence of a connection from the Princess
AnneCo Va Moseleys to the famous Col. Edward Moseley of NC who was ca. 1710
prominent in NC politics--IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT COL. EDWARD OF NC was at
one time of edenton, chowan co NC--and reportedly buried or a stone to him in
St Paul's episcopal church in Edenton;
