The name Mosman occurs as early as 1426 in written records in Scotland, and only after 1600 does it change to "Mossman."

See Kenneth F. Mosman, Fifteenth Through Twentieth Century Mos(s)man Families of Great Britain with Descendant Migrations and Histories, Anundsen Publishing Company, Decorah, Iowa, 1997, xv.

Ample evidence exists to support the contention that Scots had migrated in large numbers to mainland Europe as early as 1500.
