Susanna Moist

This ancestor has an interesting and rare surname which seems to be attached to where she came from. She was born in 1815 in Plymouth. Despite this rarity I am not sure who her parents were, but it may be possible that her father was called William, born 1789, with a mother named Ann. Susanna married a Joseph Gregory, born 1814, who also came from Plymouth. Thanks

‘Sojourner’ means a temporary resident. Presumably William is from another parish but living within the parish of St Maurice at the time of the marriage. This often happened because it saved the expense of having the Banns read in two separate parishes. I’ve seen it several times in my own family.

Thank you very much. I was wondering about Ann Stanbury myself. Nice to have another opinion. I'll have to look into this further.

Thank you very much. I have never heard of this before. Something else to look into.

I've had a look on ancestry.com but Ann Stanbury has a DOB as 1810, so couldn't possibly have had Susanna aged only five. It could be another Ann Stanbury, of course, not listed as the records could be lost or destroyed. I'll have to keep looking.
