I am trying to resolve the ancestry of my grandmother, Frances St Barbe Moore. She was known as Peggy. I believe she may fall under your family tree.

I have very little knowledge about her.

She was born in Ireland (not very helpful: I don't even know whether North or South!), and must have emigrated with her parents to Australia. All I have established is that, during the first world war, she became a nurse and in August 1917, she embarked on a warship with other nurses, and presumably went to Egypt where my grandfather met her in December.

According to the embarkation records, her mother was Mrs F Moore, "Granville", McArron Parade, Essendon, Victoria. As no mention is made of a father, I presume he was already dead, which seems to rule out Robert, also from Essendon. But could she be the daughter of Samuel? Darraweit Guim appears to be less than 40 miles from Essendon.

Another possible clue is that Robert's wife was Margaret and my grandmother's nickname was Peggy, which I believe is an abbreviation of Margaret.

Hi there - my great grandfather William Henry Moore is buried in Christchurch Drumachose Limavaday - bizarrely enough was my brick wall until I googled his name one day and came across this site

http://www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland/yourplaceandmine/londonderry/A834257.shtml

Photos of his grave stone on the final page of the article.
My grandmother was his daughter Annie Moore.

Hullo,

I wonder if this enquiry will throw up any lucky information regarding Samuel Moore and his wife Jane (ne้ Black) of Limavardy. Sumuel was born in 1789 and died 1858. He apparently had 10 sons and at least one daughter, some of whom emigrated to Australia. One of the sons was my great grandfather, William Glendye Moore. The attached memorial card is of David Moore (or Davit, as he seems to have been called), William Glendye's younger brother. (William died in 1882, leaving his wife, Charlotte - my great grandmother - with 5 children.) SORRY - THE IMAGE COULDN'T BE ATTACHED.

I've been searching for information about the Moore family for a while now and would love to know if there are any descendants still living in Limavady or round-about.

When Samuel Moore died in 1858, he left some land. There is is record - 'Griffith Land Valuation Limavady relating to Irish Green, Newtown, Limavady, Drumachose, Derry.

This is just a stab in the dark - but perhaps the recipient of this message might know something and be kind enough to let me know.

See the message I sent earlier. I am William Glendye Moore's great-grand-daughter. William went to Australia in the 1860s - as did several of his brothers (and, I believe, a sister, Anne). I've just started doing some research about the Moores and it's exciting to see that others are also doing so. I've only just discovered this website. It hope we'll be able to exchange information and build up a pictures of the family. I am part of the Australian connection, though I'm now living in London. Do get in touch! Best wishes.

Hi,
   I have a record of the marriage of Samuel Moore to Jane Black on 5 Jun 1819 in Bovevagh Presbyterian Church, District of Limavady. The church is about 6 miles south of the town of Limavady on the road, known as Ballyquin Road, to the town of Dungiven.

Thanks very much for that.

I wonder if anybody knows anything about Jane Black's family?

I'd like to get hold of a copy the marriage certificate you refer to. Perhaps you could give me details as to where I should apply.

Best, Jan

The details on the marriage is from the church record- civil registration didn't start until 1845.

Jan,
     Looking at some of the other postings there is mention of Irishgreen Street in Limavady(as it is now called) and also mention of Ardinarive. Ardinarive is a townland (a small administrative area) inthe parish of Bovevagh. The Griffiths Valuation of 1858 (part of an assessment of all property in Ireland) shows a Samuel Moore and a Rebecca Black as tenants in this townland.

Hi from Canberra.

I have just read your post. 

If you are interested in Frances Moore who is the daughter of Mrs. F. Moore who is mentioned in an earlier post then there is a lot about her in the Australian National Archives.

You should be able to do a search as a guest but if you can't access it as a guest let me know and I will see what I can do.

Good luck.

Glenys
