Mosser Early Origins



The surname Mosser was first found in Swabia, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied and enrolled by the princes of the region. Chronicles first mention Rudolph in dem mose of Wuerttemberg in 1269, and Hainrich in dem Mos of Tyrol in 1379. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as their influence grew.
