There is a story, probably fanciful, that the first of this name was a foundling, discovered by a monk on a bank of moss outside an abbey and given the surname "Moss Crop". It certainly seems to be true that the early origins of the name of those who eventually changed to Mossop are confined to this area.
Those originally Moscrop in other areas appear to have retained the original spelling. After this date, I have used the spelling Mossop although, inevitably, around the transition period some individuals were baptised under one spelling and married and buried under others.
From information collected by Dr. Mossop in the early part of this century, Chancery Records between and state that Richard Moscrop of Gosforth conveyed lands in his own lifetime to his son Thomas. I do not have the precise date but Thomas had apparently died by Mossop was a descendant of a Seascale family one of whom, Rev.
John had moved to Lincolnshire and founded a dynasty there. Thomas had at least one son and probably at least two. The definite one is Richard, born before who married Elizabeth Mayson at Gosforth on 29 August The next probable son of Thomas was another Thomas who was born before and married Johanna Jane Gibson at Gosforth on 6 September It appears that Thomas and Jane, too, had two children named William and Margaret.
I have no baptismal dates for William at present but Margaret was baptised on 12 Juneagain at Gosforth. This son, William, is almost certainly the one known in future as "William of Bankhouse, Gosforth". From my own research I believe the above to be the more likely scenario for reasons below.
There are other mistakes in this chart which was very well compiled but before the benefits of IGI and other records being available I believe that the children of Richard and Thomas probably married each other, i.
So there were two sets of cousins married, both William and Margaret, one of Rackes and one of Bankhouse, Gosforth. William Moscrop married Margaret Moscrop.
In DecemberWilliam of Rackes died and his administrator was his widow Margaret. Her administrator was her brother, William. It therefore appears that William of Rackes and his wife Margaret had no children, which the above mentioned chart showed them as having and this is why I think the parentage should be reversed.
In contrast, William of Bankhouse did have children: I can find no marriage for him and Margaret. The name Clement is very strong in our branch and carries on even to the present day. I have not found it in any other branch I know about although there are several families whose origins I cannot trace at present.
If this is so, the other two sons are: Bridget just north of Gosforth. Buried 24 December at Haile. The witnesses to his will were Thomas Moscrop and William Moscrop.
Clement had only one surviving son, John, so it is more than likely that Thomas and William were two of his brothers. Instead of using two people living in Gosforth itself, William obviously had to attend from the parish of St.
I think this makes it almost certain that William and Barnard were also children of William of Bankhouse but I have no proof.
I have looked in every imaginable place for a will of William of Bankhouse without success. In Thomas of Bankhouse died.
His executors were his widow and two of his daughters. I do not know what became of their sister, Bridget. Definite Family Information The above is piecing together information which is not proven but the first time we definitely identify our family is in when Margaret Moscrop, widow, died at High Prior Scale and was buried in the parish of St.
Her administrators were her two sons, William and Barnerd. I think it is more than likely that in her widowhood she had gone to live with William. However, the plain fact of the proven matter is that a widow, Margaret, died at HPS and had two sons, William and Barnard.A Colonial Day Report on This Dear-Bought Land by Jean Lee Latham PAGES 2.
