Hello, my mother, a born-Mosby, had a Norwegian girl-friend in Paris, France, and this lady told her it was a typical Norwegian name. When you read a little bit the History of England, you learn that at the beginning of the first millenium, the island of England was populated by monks in monasteries, and the Vikings from Danemark and Norway thought nothing wrong with invading England very often because they thought it was great and easy to serve themselves with all the gold and silver hidden in those monasteries with no army. This could explain why Mosby became an english name, very early on. The Vikings or Normen (=Normandy) were very strong, and went all over Europe, by estuaries (Seine, Volga, Thames).
