The founder of the family in England, William de Mohun, appears in doomsday as an important tenant and chief in the counties of Somerset and Dorset. The caput of their barony was at Dunster Castle, in Somerset, and their history has been fully set forth by Sir Henry Churchill Maxwell-Lyte in his history of "Dunster and its Lords" the Moones of Fleet, Dorset Co. (for the name Mohun became corrupted into Moone) were a cadet branch, who claimed to descent from Sir Robert Mohun of Porlock, Somerset Co, the fifth son of Sir John de Mohun of Dunster, who died in 1330. He was granted land in Sept. 12, 1529. He died an old man and his children were: Robert and Walter Moone.
