Origins of surname

Although the Irish family name has an entirely different derivation, linked ultimately to Saint Mona, the English version has more obvious origins, being derived not from the plant but the old English mos, meaning bog or morass, referring to somebody liviny by a swamp or peat bog.

The name may also derive from Moss(e), the normal medieval form of the Hebrew given name Moses.

Early records

The first member of the family to arrive in Jersey was Robert, who married Judith Cartwright around 1772.
