Moss, Charlotte (nee Newton)(1826-1915)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by J. Hall

Holderness Road Church, Hull Third Circuit, has lost another of its oldest and most respected members in the death of Mrs. Hannah Moss, the relict of the late Mr. William Moss. Her husband was for many years one of the most useful workers in that church, of which her son, Mr. John Moss, is to-day the society steward. 

In her earlier days she was a most devoted worker, but, after the decease of her husband, ill-health and advancing years compelled her to retire from very prominent positions. She died at the advanced age of eighty-nine years after much suffering, which she bore with the most patient spirit. 

She was a link with the past, and had known such men as Rev. George Lamb, Rev. Charles Kendall and others. She loved-to speak of the past, but at no time in her life was her religious experience richer than when age came on. 

Her remains were reverently laid aside in the same grave as those of her husband, the service being conducted by the Rev. John Hall.


I have found no evidence of a Hannah Moss in online records. I believe this was Charlotte Newton, born on 12 May 1826 at Hull, Yorkshire, to parents John Newton, a shoemaker 91841), and Charlotte McCloud. Charlotte was baptised on 30 June 1837 at a Primitive Methodist Chapel in Hull.

She married William Ellis Moss (1825-1898), a farmer, in the summer of 1855 at Hull, Yorkshire. Census returns identify six children.

  • John (1857-1936) – a shipwright (1911)
  • Joseph (1858-1938) – a joiner (1911)
  • Frederick (1859-1946) – general labourer (1891); insurance manager (1911)
  • Samuel (1861-1910) – an iron turner (1891)
  • George (1862-1878)
  • Alice (1868-1873)

Hannah died in the summer of 1915 at Hull, Yorkshire.
