The first of the Moore family to arrive in Australia was George, with  his wife Eliza and two sons William & Edwin.   To date the main focus is on the descendants of the first Australian born son, Frank Collingham Moore, as my husband and 3 sons are directly descent from him.  According to his death certificate Frank had 13 children and family lore has it he was married three times.  To date I have only been able to identify 2 wives and 4 children.

 

I welcome information, stories and photos from descendants of George's other sons, William, Edwin, Charles and John.  

 

I would also appreciate hearing from descendants of George's siblings, the children of William & Martha Moore of Warwickshire and or Yorkshire.

MOORE, A NAME

 

The surname MOORE and its variants Moor, Moores, Moors, More, and Mores are derived from two sources.  The first is Old French More, Mour, Latin Maures (and ultimately perhaps a word of North African origin) and means "a Moor" or "Swarthy (as a Moor)".  In ancient times the Moors were the inhabitants of what is now Moroco and Algeria but later the word was applied to those of mixed Berber and Arab blood who conquered Spain in the 8th century.  Even up to the 17th century it was generally believed that Moors were black though the existence of "white Moors" was known.  The usual English form of the word was More and it was used both as a personal name and as an epithet.  The second source of the surname is Old English Mor___, "Moor, Marsh, fen" or the place names Moore, in Cheshire, and More in Shropshire, which are derived from the same word.

 

Early records mention William de More of Suffolk who appears in the 1086 Domesday Book; Lefric de la More, in the 1169 Pipe Rolls of Northumberland; Johannes filius More of Lincolnshire in record of the Templars (1185); Hugo Maurus, in 1186 Pipe Rolls of Cambridgeshire; Osbert Mor, in the 1227 Feet of Fines of Suffolk;  Hugh le Mor, in the 1205 Cruia Regis Rolls of Bedfordshire;  Simon Atte Moure, in the 1296 Subsidy Rolls of Sussex; and John Blthemore in the 1327 Subsidy Rolls, Somerset.
