Please Do you have any information on Sir Edward Mostyn, 7th baronet. 1785-1841
Where is he buried, and where did he own quarries and properties in Warwickshire.

Many thanks

Margaret.

Thank you for your enquiry. Most of the information we hold regarding the Mostyn family relates directly to the paintings in our collection. So unfortunately we don’t have any information on Sir Edward Mostyn, 7th bart., specifically. You may find that the Warwickshire County Records office or the Flintshire Record Office may be of more help.
