Mosley Baronets


Mosley Baronets

There have been three Baronetcies created for members of the Mosley family, one in the Baronetage of England and two in the Baronetage of Great Britain. One creation is extant as of 2008.

The Mosley Baronetcy, of Rolleston in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 10 July 1640 for Edward Mosley, of Rolleston Hall, grandson of Sir Nicholas Mosley of Hough End Hall, who acquired the Manor of Manchester in 1596 and was Lord Mayor of London in 1599. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for St Michaels. The baronetcy became extinct on his death in 1665.

The Mosley Baronetcy, of Rolleston in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 18 June 1720 for Oswald Mosley, a third cousin of the second Baronet of the 1640 creation. The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1779.

The Mosley Baronetcy, of Ancoats in the County of Lancaster, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 8 June 1781 for John Mosley. He was a first cousin of the third Baronet of the 1720 creation. His grandson, the second Baronet, represented several constituencies in the House of Commons. His grandson, the fourth Baronet, served as High Sheriff of Staffordshire in 1915. His grandson, the sixth Baronet, Sir Oswald Mosley, gained notoriety as the founder of the British Union of Fascists. He married as his first wife Lady Cynthia, second daughter of George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon of Kedleston. Lady Cynthia and her two sisters were in special remainder to the barony of Ravensdale created for their father in 1911. After her early death in 1933 Mosley married as his second wife Diana Mitford, former wife of the Hon. Bryan Guinness, 2nd Baron Moyne, and one of the famous Mitford sisters. In 1966 Mosley's son from his first marriage, Nicholas, succeeded his aunt as third Baron Ravensdale. On his father's death in 1980 he also inherited the baronetcy of Ancoats, which now is a subsidiary title of the barony.

Two other members of the family may also be mentioned. Tonman Mosley, 1st Baron Anslow, younger son of the third Baronet, was a politician (see Baron Anslow). Max Mosley, second son of the second marriage of the sixth Baronet, is the long-serving President of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile.
