MOSTYN Family History

Recorded in several spellings including Mosten, Mostin, Mosstin, Moston and Mostyn, this is an English surname. It is locational from either of two villages called Moston both in the county of Cheshire, or from Moston in Lancashire, or Moston in Shropshire. The place name and hence the later surname means the village by the lake. This is from the pre 7th century Olde English word "maes" meaning marsh or lake, fused with the suffix "tun". Moston in Lancashire is first recorded in the tax rolls known as the Feet of Fines in 1195, whilst Moston near Chester is first recorded in the year 1228 as "Morcetone," and Moston near Middlewich is slightly later, appearing in the Assize Court rolls of Cheshire in 1276...
