Proved Chesterfield 14 Oct 1684, Jo: LOBLEY, Sur., to Thomas MOSLEY and  Edward MOSLEY.
Note: The estate was administered by an Edward MOSELY during Thomas and Edward's minority. Edward senior was most probably Margaret's nephew and son of Richard MOSLEY (likely to be her late husband William MOSLEY's brother) and his wife "ould Anne". However it isn't clear why this was necessary when Thomas himself should have been able to administer. Thomas was the father of the grandchildren William and Mary, and at least in his mid-twenties by then, with son Edward being the only one still under 21.

MIDDLETON, Edward - of Smalldale, Bradwell, Hope, yeoman, 17 Dec 1847.
In a way this is a simple will. In the 1841 census Edward, of independent means, is living with the family of his nephew William BRAMWELL of Smalldale (The Bowling Green?) & his leaves his estate both free & copyhold in trust for his great nephew William jnr. The Trustees were Robert MIDDLETON of Bradwell, shoemaker & William Greaves MIDDLETON of Eccles, Hope, yeoman. The problem arose when William Greaves MIDDLETON died & although Robert MIDDLETON, the shoemaker was still living he was 90. It seems they decided on younger trustees & the codicil appoints William GREAVES of Eccles & Robert MIDDLETON of Hope as trustees.
