    The name of the wife of John Moss has not been determined. In 1648 he was attorney for his " brother-in-law," John Charles, a seafaring man who lived in Branford and Saybrook. Possibly her maiden name was Charles or they married sisters. The English ancestry of John Moss is unproven, but there is a family tradition that he was connected with that of Charles Moss, Bishop of St. David* in 1766 and Bishop of Bath and Wells in 1774, whose son, Charles, was Bishop of Oxford, in 1807. He was surely of a former generation. The name was an honorable one in England, and was borne by several other distinguished men. John Moss of New Haven and Wallingford was a " cousin " of John Beach of the latter town and so calls him in a deed in 1689. In 1648, while living in New Haven, he gave land to Richard Beach, and perhaps the same land called that year " Richard Beeches wives lot" The connection between these two families is unknown to us.
