In England the surname Moor(e) or Moor(e)s can have one of several origins:

 

1.  A topographical name from the Old English "mor", meaning moor or fen, or from one of several villages bearing the name, including Moore in Cheshire.

 

2.  A nickname for someone with a dark or swarthy complexion, from the Latin "maurus", which became "more" in Old French.

 

3.  More rarely, from the forename More (borne by several early saints), which was introduced into England by the Normans, but was less popular here than in mainland Europe.

 

The spelling Moores was historically concentrated in Lancashire and Cheshire.

 

 

Sarah's note:  This particular Moores family, while not my direct ancestors, are cousins who descend from my direct Hinton line, and have been placed on a separate page for clarity.

 

 

 

Peter Moores, the son of Thomas Moores and his wife Sarah, was born in Wincham on 31 March 1817, and christened in St Helen's Church on 20 April 1817.   He was a rock salt miner all his working life, and married Sophia Hinton in Witton on 31 October 1836.
