Hi Astwood

Do you know when he married and who to?

There was a Richard Moss baptised on 11th January 1807 son of John and Bettey Moss in Gorton, Lancashire.

HI AGAIN BENNY 1982
The date is right for the gorton baptism Richard Moss married
Sarah skerratt in wybunbury cheshire in 1837 this was his
second marriage as its got widower on the pr copy I have
found another richard moss in heaton norris by stockport
on the 4th of august 1833 he and his wife sarah had a
daughter mary anne baptised and he was a corn miller
and as my richard moss was a miller in wybunbury its
proving the connection isnt it
thanks

Hi Astwood

Civil registration began on the 1st July 1837. Was the 1837 marriage before or after 1st July because if it was after then it should have his fathers name and occupation.

Hi Astwood

Here is a list of other people (males) with the surname Moss born in Stockport around the same time span as Richard alive in the 1851 census.

Isaac Moss born abt 1793 Stockport, Cheshire, Head Stockport, Cheshire, a Sand Dealer. Husband of Sarah.

James Moss born abt 1798 Stockport, Cheshire, Visitor, Hadfield, Derbyshire, a printer.

Isaac and James may be brothers of Richard??

Hi Astwood

Have you checked the actual baptisms for St Mary, Stockport as the IGI has Moss baptisms that only go up to 1805. It is likely that post 1805 baptisms havent been transcribed yet. There were a few Moss baptisms in Stockport 1790-1805 and the parents of them were Samuel and Sarah and Isaac and his wife (Cant remember firstname)

Here is the link to thew Hugh Wallis site. Scroll down to Stockport, click on the dates for St Mary that say 1792-1802 then a new page will come up saying "Specify your search criteria" then type Moss in the icon at the top of the screen and click on Submit Search then the Moss baptisms 1792-1805 should appear.

Hi Astwood

Well, that rules out St Mary, Stockport then. Wynbunbury is quite a way from Stockport, about 20 miles south.

It is a huge pity that Richard married 4 months before registration then at least you would get a fathers name.

if you havent done already, it may be good to check the 1833 marriage original entry to see the names of the 2 witnesses. Or even look for a will for the time he died. This may name a relative.
