Moor Plat was the home for a while of William Mossop
and Ann Rothery who married in 1817.
Later in the century John Mossop who married Hannah Hartley in 1867 also farmed here.
"Clifton" at Coulderton
This was the home of Isaac Mossop born 1818 at Moor Plat, eldest son of William Mossop and Ann Rothery
Isaac married, as his second wife, his first cousin Mary Rothery in 1850.
Both marriages had taken place at Great and Little Clifton, hence probably the name of the house.
The monogram of Isaac and Mary Mossop with the date
1854, presumably when the house was built
although Isaac had lived in the village before that. Sadly, Mary died suddenly the following year.
Isaac married for a third time in 1857 but was himself drowned when bathing in the sea in 1858 aged 40.
I am not sure which house this is as there were several settlements along the banks of the River Ehen and many Mossop families lived there at one time or another. One such was William Mossop who married Mary Ponsonby in 1761 and they previously lived in Ennerdale. William was a son of Clement Mossop and Jane Sharp, latterly of Prior Ling and he also owned that property which he must have inherited from his parents. In 1851 a grandson of Clement and Jane Mossop, Joseph was living at Ehenside but whether or not it was the same property it is not easy to tell.
