In the nineteenth century, as many as thirty-two Moseley family pictures, most of them portraits, were recorded in the collection of a descendant. It is unknown how many were portraits and how many dated to the colonial period. According to the family, every generation was represented. The Moseley family collection appears to have descended through William Moseley II at Rolleston Hall until the collection was divided in the late nineteenth century.
