About Richard Mohun

Richard Mohun/Moone was born about 1495 in England. He was a bailiff of Bridport between 1535 and 1537 in Bridport, Dorset Co. England. He was a bailiff of Bridport in 1544/45 in Bridport, Dorset Co. England. He died in 1570 in Dorset Co. England. The Mohun (MOONE) family was one of the most ancient Norman houses of the West Country, and derived it's name from Moyon in Normandy. 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.
