Elizabeth Moore was the fourth daughter of Robert Moore of Moore, Devonshire, Gentleman, and Johanna Elford.[1] Her date of birth is unknown.

Elizabeth married John Rowe of Lamerton, Devonshire,[2] about 1599 or perhaps a bit earlier, based on the approximate birth date of their oldest known child.

Elizabeth is named in her husband's will, which probated on Aug 1653.[3] She herself died soon after (exact date unknown) and was buried in Lamerton on 23 Feb 1653/4.[4]

The stone lintel in Great Haye (the Rowe Manor House where Elizabeth and John lived) shows the coats of arms of Rowe and Moore families.[5]
