The name Mossely was first used by England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in either of the places called Moseley in Staffordshire and Worcestershire, in Moseley in West Dean in Gloucestershire, or in Mowsley in Leicestershire. The surname Mossely belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Mossely Early Origins



The surname Mossely was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held lands.
