Will proven in February 1810. Frances his wife left the estate unadministered. Their son John then took over administration. Further research required in family connection required as the match is by MI birth date only.
If you are interested in further Mossop family information I recommend that you contact the experts, Marshall and Jean Mossop or Jill Coulthard. They have done a huge amount of research and have kindly supplied me with most of the information that I have about the Mossops before 1850.
