{52} Ruvigny Elaboration: Henry VII Descent for George Moore of Appleby Hall (1811-1871)

George Moore of Appleby Hall 
The Moore family seated at Appleby Hall in the 19th century is thought to have sprung from the Mores of More Hall and Bank Hall in Lancashire, and Sir John Moore (1620-1702), Lord Mayor of London 1681-82, assumed the coat of arms of the Lancashire Mores when he was knighted. But the line can only be traced today to a Charles Moore of Stretton in Derbyshire (grandfather of the Lord Mayor), who purchased the manor of Appleby Parva in 1599. A very comprehensive online account of the Moores of Appleby is that of historian Richard Dunmore, which can be found on the Appleby Magna website. For the next 320 or so years, the Moores continued as owners of the manor of Appleby, and made its manor house Appleby Hall their home.

By the mid-18th-century, the Moores were well established in the upper levels of Leicestershire society, and began serving terms as High Sheriff of the county. But it wasn't until the early 19th-century that a member of the family married into the Edward I bloodline: and, rather unusually, the first marriage of the Moores into that bloodline was to a descendant of Henry VII. How, in 1810, old George Moore, squire of Appleby Hall, was able to secure the granddaughter of an earl as a bride for his 31-year-old son and heir, requires a bit of explanation. The key to such a noteworthy marriage was the bride's father, John Drummond, the fifth of his family to be Laird of Megginch Castle in Perthshire. His family had strong ties to Quebec, the province of Lower Canada that Drummond's father lived in from 1764 till his death in 1776. Drummond himself succeeded his father as a member of the Quebec council and deputy commissary and paymaster to the British forces in Canada until 1782, when he seems to have returned to Britain. Four years later in 1786, he succeeded his uncle Adam Drummond to Megginch Castle and the Lennoch estate in Perthshire, as well as to his uncle's Shaftesbury seat in Parliament. Being the new head of the family brought Drummond some social cachet, but he was in constant financial difficulties. He sold the Lennoch estate shortly after inheriting it, and so probably had sufficient cash on hand when he married Lady Susan Fane, the half-sister of the 10th Earl of Westmorland. It was a prestigious match for Drummond, not so much for the Fanes. Lady Susan's father had died some years before, and she was raised by her mother and stepfather Col. John Woodford, which helps to explain why she and her two younger sisters married outside of the peerage. John Drummond only enjoyed four-and-a-half years of marriage to his well-connected wife before she died as a result of giving birth to their second child and only daughter in 1793. Two years later, Drummond made over Megginch Castle to his younger brother Robert, and by 1802 had purchased Snarestone Lodge in Leicestershire from Col. Samuel Madden, an Irish officer prone to heavy gambling, the widower of one of the two co-heiresses to the property.

Once settled into Snarestone Lodge, it wasn't long before Drummond and his daughter came to the notice of the Moores at Appleby Hall, a mere two miles away. Since the Moores had evolved into one of the leading gentry families in Leicestershire, Drummond was assured they would provide his daughter a lifestyle similar in rank and grander in scale than what he had been able to give her. And so in 1810, Drummond's 17-year-old daughter Susan was married to George Moore, the 31-year-old heir to the Appleby Hall estate. History tragically repeated itself when the young Mrs. Moore, whose own birth had resulted in the early death of her mother, herself died at age 20 as a result of giving birth to her second child, a daughter who survived and was named Susan Drummond in honour of her just-departed mother.

Burke's Landed Gentry stopped tracking the pedigree of the Moores of Appleby Hall at the end of the 19th century. The family's last appearance in that series was in the 9th Edition of 1898. The most comprehensive pedigree of the Moores remains the 1909 Moore of Appleby Hall pedigree in Volume 16 of the Visitation of England and Wales series. Thankfully, historian Richard Dunmore, with the aid of George Moore descendant Peter Moore, have provided a detailed account of the family on the Appleby Magna website, linked to above, which allows us to trace the family down to the present day. My goal is to elaborate on and continue the descent of the family begun by Ruvigny in his 1903 Tudor volume, p. 485.
