The will of Thomas Moses of Stanhope answers a lot of questions for me.  It mentions his brother Joshua of Wolsingham who had two sons Thomas and John.  He also mentions in the will his other brother Samuel.  Joshuas, Thomas had a son called George I believe he is he George in Johns will along with cousins Thomas and Isaac being Samuels sons. This would explain why so much land around Wolsingham belonged to John and Thomas  George had a bastardly son to Margaret Fenwick in 1798.  He recognised him on his death bed and bequeathed him a large amount of money.  My husband is directly descended from George who was his great, great, great grandfather.

Thanks Christine
