The Moberly Family springs from Cheshire, England, and our history goes back to William the Conqueror ... and forward to almost every aspect on the modern world.  Rooted in Steeple Ashton, Cheshire England, our family encircles the globe; from England, to Canada, the United States, India, Russia, and Australia. 

While most Moberlys have been quite ordinary, salt-of-the-earth folks, we've had our fair share of historical heroes.  Raufe was Lord of Town of Mobberley.  His son Augustine accompanied Richard the Lionheart on the Third Crusade.  Moberlys built St. Wilfred's Church.  Three generations of Moberlys were merchants in St. Petersburg, Russia.  Captain John Moberly, after a distinguished career in the British Royal Navy, emigrated to Canada and played instrumental roles in Canadian business and civic politics. Two of his sons, Henry John and Walter played instrumental roles in opening up Western Canada.  Moberlys have been farmers, labourers, mechanics and waiters, as well as doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants, ambassadors, knights, and bishops.  Mostly, we've just been good moms and dads, abiding by the laws of our respective counties.

Over the next year, with help of many friends and family members (one terrific resource has been my newly-found cousin Peter Guy Moberly Mott living in Australia) we will tell the Moberly's story.  I hope you will enjoy it.  If you have any information on the Moberly family name or if you find errors in my research, please contact me at
