About John Moore, of Norwich


Someone alleged that:

  • this John is the son of Walter More of Cudham, Kent, England
  • Walter was born in 1300 AD
  • Walter may possibly be a brother or half-brother or (1st?) cousin of Sir Adam Mure of Rowallan

These allegations were followed by - and seemed to stem from - yet another allegation (presumably from the aforementioned someone) that William Mure of Rowallan (Adam's father) was a knight and would have fought in England.

It was also suggested (presumably by the aforementioned someone) that:

  • this John may have been born of a different mother
  • the Mure family had cadet branches down in England for strategic purposes

Stirnet's "Mure01" page (membership required to view without interruption), which charts the Rowallan and Abercorn/Cowdams branches of the Mure family from the 13th century to the 17th century, and was constructed from the following sources:

  • The Historie and Descent of the House of Rowallan (written by Sir William Mure, Knight, of Rowallan in/by 1657, edited/published by William Muir in 1825)
  • Crawfurd's Renfrewshire (written by George Crawfurd and William Semple in 1782, published by George Robertson in 1818)
  • Commoners (vol i, Mure of Caldwell)

...does not do any of the following:

  • mention any descendancy that obviously lived in England (meaning no cadet branches living in England "for strategic purposes")
  • mention this John
  • mention this John's alleged father Walter (the closest "match" would be Gilchrist Mure of Cowdams - but Cowdams is not the same as Cudham, and Gilchrist was born in the next generation after this John)
  • affirm that Sir Adam of Rowallan's father William was a knight
  • affirm that Sir Adam of Rowallan's father William fought in England

Also, the following should be considered:

  • if Walter did exist, he probably was related to the de More/Moore family of Kent (which is charted on Stirnet's "Moore01" page)
  • seeing that this John was styled "of Norwich" (according to Stirnet's "Heydon1" page), this John was probably a not-so-close relative of Walter and the de More/Moore family of Kent

actions awaiting undertaking by a curator

  • detach this John from his parents


Date of birth might be 1327.
