The Common Room / Re: Samuel Mozeen, gunsmith
« on: Saturday 25 July 20 10:10 BST (UK)  »
This is fascinating.  John Mozeen, like Samuel, is on our 19th century register, so we can assume he's Samuel's father.  However, Samuel entered the Charterhouse in 1849 with his age given as 54, when it was only 50 (the regulations said you had to be 60).  He retired from his business earlier in the same year.  Elizabeth likely to be Samuel's sister.
Thanks, all of you.

The Common Room / Samuel Mozeen, gunsmith

Samuel Mozeen died in the Hull Charterhouse in July 1850, aged c. 55.  His career as a gun maker in Hull is well documented but I can't find any clue to his origins.  The 1841 census shows him with Dorothy Mozeen, the same age and presumably his wife.  Earlier than that, nothing.  Can anyone help?

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Re: Who was Joseph Lusby?

I haven't, and they're taking months to get now anyway.  An the causes of death on certificates that early are often not very enlightening.

Thanks, but I think that was a different man.  There's one born in Airmyn in 1773.  My Joseph was certainly in the Charterhouse in 1841.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Who was Joseph Lusby?

I know that Joseph Lusby was born in Hull in 1772 and that his father was John Lusby.  If you can find him on the 1841 census he will be in the Hull Charterhouse, because the extraordinary fact is that he was admitted to a room there in 1791, when he was only 19 (you were supposed to be at least 60).  Joseph died in January 1844.  I would really like to find out more about him to explain the circumstances of his life.

I mean, I use the GRO site to order certificates but not to search.

Thanks for that.  I've never figured out how to do that on the GRO site :)

Montgomeryshire / Robert Jones and family
« on: Saturday 11 July 20 11:47 BST (UK)  »
I have Robert Jones and his family on the 1891 census but can't get any further with them.  It's RG12  4596/8 page 10.  He's a farm waggoner in Chirbury near Welshpool, born c.1860 in Montgomeryshire, married to Elizabeth (same age and birthplace).  They have 9 children at this point.  I know tracing Jones is something of a nightmare, but I'd appreciate any help.
