William Moore was born in 1690 in Prince George County, Virginia, United States. He was the son of Richard Moore (1657-1727) and Elizabeth Orrick Moore (1660-1726). John married Susanna. Don't know her last name or the name of her parents.

William and Susanna Moore were the parents of the following known children: William Daniel Moore, Winifred Moore, Mouring Moore, Drury Moore, Alse Moore, Winney Moore, John Moore, Mary Moore, Richard Moore, Anne Moore and Tabitha Moore.

William Moore died on 1744 in St Andrews Parish, Brunswick, Virginia, United States. Brunswick County was established in 1720 from Prince George County. In 1732 the county received more land from parts of Surry and Isle of Wight counties.

William was 54 years old. William was buried in Surry Co., Va. USA - Moore family cemetery.

Brunswick Co. Will Book 3 at the bottom of John Moore's abstract, it says "Probate indicates that MARY MOORE was an executor with Hezekiah Thrower & Lewis Parham securities, that said Lewis Parham refused to execute. JOHN MOORE, an heir, was a minor & Hezekiah Thrower was assigned his guardian to contest the will but "declard he had nothing to object to it" Brunswick Co. Va. Wills.....

The family of the North Carolina Moores also from Virginia have done a lot of research about their family of Moore's. Here are 2 really good websites about the Moore family from Virginia to North Carolina.

First link at end of biography is a dead link. Updated version available? Might be the original content moved URLs.

Second one, the pdf, has Moore genealogy but the content is later than this bio. Was there an intro to the pdf that contained the earlier story for here?

Also, the Geni version on this William helped clarify that William Moore (not John) was married to Susanna, so William was married twice, first to Susanna, who had most or all of his children, and then to Mary Roberts. She, then, was the "Mary Moore" in the will, relative to WILLIAM's minor sons John and Drury. - omits Mary Roberts, includes Susanna, AND adds Wm bro John also m to Mary __. Confusing.
