My Grandfather's side of the family has the name of Moss or going back to the 1600's Mosse.
I was told that my grandfathers family came to England "on the boats" whatever that means.
I checked the name and it goes back to the family living in Essex.
The family seemed to have been baptised so I thought they could not be Jewish.
I have researched the name and think they were but cant trace the family.
