About Andrew Moore

Andrew Moore

  • Birth: Jun. 6, 1688, Ireland

Andrew Moore was born on June 6, 1688 in Ireland. There are conflicting records about where in Ireland Andrew was born. Most records refer to County Antrim.

In 1722, his first wife, Margaret [Miller?], passed away after the birth of their fourth child, Thomas. The following year, Andrew emigrated from Ireland with his four children: James, Mary, Margaret and Thomas. They arrived at New Castle, Delaware on August 3, 1723 and took up residence in Sadsbury Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

In Pennsylvania, Andrew remarried on April 24, 1725 to Rachel Halliday, daughter of William Halliday, and had several more children: William, Robert, David, Andrew, Joseph, Robert, Rachel, John, David and Sarah.

-------------------- Moore Family History by J. Montgomery Seaver, p. 52 -------------------- A Quaker.

Buried in Friends Burial Ground, Sadsbury Twnshp, Chester Cnty, Penna --------------------

Andrew Moore was a Quaker and instrumental in the development of a worship house in his new settlement of Sadsbury, Chester County, Pennsylvania. This has been documented in several places:

According to the "History of Lancaster County" by Ellis and Evans, pg. 1036: "In 1724, Andrew Moore and Samuel Miller petitioned for the establishment of a meeting of worship in Sadsbury. It was done in 1725, and twelve years later, or in 1737, the Sadsbury Monthly meeting was established. A log meeting-house was built in 1725, and this was the place of worship until about 1760, when the present house was erected... Among the ancient members of this meeting the names are remembered of Andrew and James Moore, Nail Mooney, James Clemson, James Clemson Jr., Anthony Shaw, Jane Jones and daughter Sarah Metcalf, Isaac Taylor, Samuel Miller, John, Aaron, and Thomas Musgrave, Robert Moore, Calvin Cooper, John Truman, and Asshel Walker. The lot on which the church was originally built was purchased from the "Servants' Tracts", now called Christiana tract. To this an addition was afterwards purchased from Thomas Richard and John Penn, increasing the amount of land owned by the meeting to about seventy acres. When the division into Hicksite and Orthodox branches of the Friends occured the former retained control of the property."

According to the "History of Chester County, Pennsylvania," by J. Smith Futhey and Gilbert Cope, pg. 239: "Samuel Smith says that in 1724, Samuel Miller and Andrew Moore made application on behalf of themselves and their friends settled about Sadsbury for liberty to build a meeting house, which being granted by the Quarterly meeting, they built one in 1725, which goes by the name of Sadsbury."

From "The History of Lancaster County" by Dr. Frederick Klein: "In 1724, Andrew Moore and Samuel Miller petitioned for the establishment of a Particular Meeting in Sadsbury township, and for the erection of a meetinghouse. This was accomplished in 1725, a log house then being raised. In 1737, the Sadsbury Monthly Meeting was established, and drew Quakers from Leacock, Lampeter, and Salisbury. Leacock cooperated with Sadsbury to secure this Monthly Meeting status, and all gathered at Sadsbury until 1749, when a larger meetinghouse was built at Bird-in-Hand, East Lampeter Township. hen Leacock Monthly Meeting was established, and was continued at that point until 1854, by which time so many Quakers of the Lampeters and Leacocks had moved "toward the great West," that it was decided to take the Monthly Meeting to Sadsbury. Sadsbury Meeting-The Sadsbury meetinghouse of the Hicksite branch, was erected of stone in 1748, it is believed. Its solid stone walls rise to a height of two stories, and when first built supported high galleries. These galleries, and in fact almost all of the interior woodwork, were burned during the Revolutionary War; and when the repairing was taken in hand by Joseph Guest, who had charge of the original carpentry, it was decided to lay a floor on the second story, in place of galleries. This arrangement has continued to the present. It is not used now, excepting occasionally for funeral services. The building was at one time used by the Amish Mennonites. Among the Quakers who were early members of this church were Andrew and James Moore, Nail Mooney, James Clemson, James Clemson, Jr., Anthony Shaw, Jane Jones, Sarah Metcalf, Isaac Taylor, Samuel Miller, John Aaron, and Thomas Musgrave, Robert Moore, Calvin Cooper, John Truman, and Asahel Walker. The original site of the meetinghouse was part of what is known as the "Servant's Tract," or the "Christiana Tract." A later addition, bringing the church property to seventy acres, was purchased from Thomas Richard and John Penn. When the division into Hicksite and Orthodox Friends occurred, the former society retained possession of the church property. The Orthodox society soon afterwards erected a meetinghouse near the line between Sadsbury and Bart townships, only a short distance from the Bart meetinghouse which had been erected in 1825. There the Sadsbury and Bart orthodox Quakers met for worship until 1880, when the meeting was laid down, and another house erected in the borough of Christiana, a brick structure, thirty feet square and one story high. The Sadsbury Society of Friends is not a strong body [today], though both the Sadsbury and Bart Friends meetings have active Sunday schools with enrollments in excess of fifty."

More information on Andrew Moore's immigration and life in Pennsylvania comes from the writings "Ancestors and Descendants of Andrew Moore, 1612-1897" by John Andrew Moore Passmore. Philadelphia [Lancaster, Pa., Wickersham printing Co.] 1897, vol. 1, pp. 7-8:

"Andrew determined in 1723 to emigrate to America. He landed at New Castle, Del., 8-3-1723. 'At a Monthly Meeting held at New Garden, Chester Co., Pa., 6-8-1724, Andrew Moore produced to this meeting a certificate from a Meeting held at Ballanacree in the County of Antrim in the north of Ireland.' (See New Garden Monthly Meeting records.).

Andrew was married a second time, 4-24-1725 to Rachel, daughter of William Holliday. He settled on a tract of land on both sides of the Octoraro Creek, now partly is Sadsbury, Chester co., and partly in Sadsbury, Lanc. Co., Pa. He erected a tub mill near the present town of Atglen, Chester Co., Pa., the ruins of which can still be seen. Henry Moore (#371) resides on a part of the old tract which has been in the family since 1736. There has never been a vendue or a mortgage upon it, or a judgment against it.

Andrew was engaged in milling and farming, took a very active part in the business and other Meetings of the Society of Friends, was largely instrumental in establishing Sadsbury Friends' Meeting and in erecting the first Meeting House there. In 1724, Andrew Moore and Samuel Miller on behalf of themselves and Friends settle about Sadsbury, asked for liberty to build a Meeting House, which being granted by the Meeting, built on in 1725.

Andrew Moore had considerable literary talent, wrote both prose and poetry. I regret the following is the only emanation I have from his pen. It is given just as written by him:

'These I wrote to a Friend's daughter, a little girl who I was told was fond of Meter and wished to have some of Andrew Moore's making, although she was a stranger to me.

'The reason why those lines I pen, Was love to thee my little friend, As I am now a man in years, That as partook of joys and fears, I find that in the bloom of youth We ought to love and seek the truth, And not like some put away Far out of sight the evil day, Saying it's time enough for me I wish more pleasures for to see, But don't consider how that death, May in a moment stop their breath And to this wourld must bid adieu, Then fearful judgment must issue Or if the sentance then be past, Into the late let them be cast, That doth with flaming sulpher flow Forever to remain in woe. Therefore my dear let us prepare, While time to us is given; And strive for to obtain a share, With the blest saints in Heaven. So now I shall conclude in love, And that to all the human race; Wishing each one for to improve, In the ways of truth and grace.'"

The Chester County Historical Society has a copy of Andrew Moore's will (record #1492 from the Wills & Administration files, 1714-1876; copies can be ordered at www.cchs-pa.org/).
