    Moss , Staffordshire

    Can anyone help me.
    I am looking for the parents of Joseph Moss born c1801 Staffordshire and also the surname of his wife Ann c1806 Staffordshire. They are listed in the 1841 census living in Kingsley Moor, Kingsley, Staffordshire with 7 children; John b 1826, Hannah, b 1828 William b 1830, Sarah b 1832, Ellen b 1834, Esther b 1836 and Joseph b 1839 all of Staffordshire.

    Also I am looking for the parents (and children) of John Moss who married Ann Evans 05 Jan 1713 Cheadle, Staffordshire. I know of 2 of their children: John b 1719, and Lydia b 1729 both in Cheadle, Staffordshire.

    As far as I know Joseph Moss and John Moss are not related but just happen to occur in different branches of my tree.

    The IGI has this marriage, which looks good?

    Joseph Moss & Ann Whitehurst 22 Jun 1823 Kingsley, Stafford

    It's an extracted entry


      There's a Joseph Moss baptised Kingsley 18 Jun 1797, parents John and Elizabeth in the IGI - Family History and Genealogy Records

      Also a marriage to Ann Whithurst 22 Jun 1823 also at Kingsley

      Could they be yours?


        Snap Sue!


          For John and Ann's children there are these 3 entries for Cheadle but they are submitted not extracted so should be treated with caution - you need to cinfrim them with the parish register:

          HANNAH MOSS
          Christening: 10 SEP 1723 Cheadle, Stafford, England

          LIDIA MOSS
          Christening: 07 AUG 1729 Cheadle, Stafford, England

          WM. MOSS
          Christening: 08 OCT 1727 Cheadle, Stafford, England


            and these are children baptised in Kingsley to Joseph & Ann:

            all extracted entries from IGI:

            John 10 Aug 1824
            Hannah 11 May 1828
            William 27 Jun 1830
            Sarah 6 May 1832
            Ellen 19 Jan 1834
            Esther 4 Oct 1835
            Joseph 25 Jun 1837
            Joseph 4 Nov 1838
            Avis 19 Jul 1840


              That looks like the first lot sorted. I don't know how you do it as I have been searching for ages. Thanks so much to both of you


                Lindsay's right, you should try and get a look at the parish registers.

                Joseph & Ann had two children named Joseph, there's also a daughter Avis who both may have died before 1841 census.


                  To find possible children to Joseph & Ann, I put Joseph Moss in the father's name & just Ann for the mother. Leave the child's name blank.

                  Then choose birth/christening for the event.

                  region: British Isles
                  country: England
                  county: stafford

                  That will bring up a long list, I just looked for the Kingsley christenings.

                  This is the link for the search page I used:

                  hope that helps

                  oops!! should have said: click on the IGI from menue on left
