Lancashire / Moore Family from Manchester 1820's
« on: Saturday 06 November 04 04:48 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for Moore's who were from Ireland, (County Down). They probably came to the Throstlenest, Hulme, Ardwick, Stretford area of Manchester about 1820. The ones I know of then went to Nashville, Tennessee about 1851. I can provide additional information such as names, 1 marriage certificate and 1 death certificate registered here during this period. Some of the other surnames associated with them were West, Lowry, Martin and perhaps Angus. I can dig deeper if I get a response. Their occupations were joiners/carpenters, winders, tea salesmen, market gardeners, saddler, cariagemaker and perhaps liquor salesman. These are some of the jobs they held after their arrival in the US. The most prolific being carpentry. They were Methodists and members of the Masonic Order. These Moore's were all related to my John Moore who came to Canada in May 1, 1818. He was from the Holywood - Newtownards area of County Down. He married Sophia Angus. The surname Barr can also be added.
