Anne Catherine Spotswood (1728 - c. 1802), who married Col. Bernard Moore, Esq., of Chelsea, King William Co., Va, a gentleman seventh in descent from Sir Thomas More, of Chelsea, England, the author of Utopia, and was an ancestor of Robert E. Lee and Helen Keller.[1]

Anne Catherine Spotswood, eldest daughter of the governor, was elegant in person and manners, and of a high spirit. While she was a strong supporter of the British government, her husband Bernard Moor and children were sympathizers of the patriot cause. There is a story of her having made her negroes toss an overseer who had offended her, in a blanket, while she stood at the window to witness the scene. [2]
