Mosby

 

Edd Mosby

Edd Mosby was transported to America and lived in Charles City County, Virginia.

The present Westover Church stands on the banks of the James River near the Byrd Family plantation of that name, in Charles City County, Virginia. In the original building of this church, located a mile or so down river, adjacent to the Westover plantation house, Edd Mosby, planter, worshiped, and served as vestryman. He was buried in the church yard there in 1663. The present building, constructed about 1750, mostly of material salvaged from the original, is believed to look much the same as it did in the days of Edd Mosby, who lived and died in the Westover plantation and the church, at both sites, was located on lands originally granted to Francis West, brother of Lord Delaware, a forebear of one of the branches of the Mosby family.

Richard is his only known son.
