Peter Howard Mobley was born and educated
in Birmingham, England, and worked in engineering administration
and the insurance industry. As a young semi-professional
singer he won prizes at various Eisteddfods, and sang a
number of roles in light opera and oratorio.
He was a choirmaster for sixteen years, and directed and
sang in a close harmony quartet for eleven years. Now, in
his 55th year as a church chorister, he sings with Worcester
Cathedral Voluntary Choir in addition to freelance engagements.
His other interests include numismatics and English history.
He has written a local history book, and out of research
into his Moberly/Mobley family roots in the north Oxfordshire
Cotwolds emerged the creation of Mobley Heritage and its
publication "from Motburlege to Mobley". Peter
is a member of the Guild of One-Name Studies, and the Oxfordshire Family History Society.
