Arthur Moseley, son of William Moseley, an English merchant of Rotterdam, Holland, who came to Virginia in 1649 and received grants of land in Lower Norfolk County, was Burgess in 1676, and one of the justices of his county. He died in 1705?

Arthur lived at Greenwich, his father's plantation on the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River, for the next six years. When his father died in 1655, he received a sizeable inheritance, including property on Broad Creek where he lived for about 30 years before moving about 1690 to Norfolk town.

Arthur was a Member of the House of Burgesses for Lower Norfolk in 1676 at the time of Bacons Rebellion. Arthur came to Virginia with his parents in 1649. Arthur arrived in Virginia in 1649. He resided in Lynn Haven and in Norfolk.

Order of children follows that and Arthur's will, even though the girls and boys are listed separately for his second wife, and are probably therefore not in chronological order.
