Thomas Moone was one of the first of our family to visit America. perhaps the first, he made a trip in 1570 when there was no settlements in America, and it was almost 37 years later; that the first permanent settlement was established in Jamestown. The Registry of St. Matin's Church, of Ludgate, England shows that William Moone, son of Thomas Moone was christened on August 6th, 1570. This William Moone was most likely the son of Captain Thomas Moone. He was one of the early emigrants to Virginia

Thomas Moone, Captain of the ship Christopher, was Sir Francis Drakes most trusted officer. Drake says that he could trust Captain Moone, more than he could his own brother, John Drake. Captain Moone was with Drake from the beginning of his eventful career, and followed his fortunes as long as he lived, and he died almost at the same time as his beloved Commander, Captain Drake says that Captain Moone struck the first blow against the Spaniards in the South seas, in the war that resulted in transferring the supremacy of the seas from Spain to England, and continued with Drake throughout this long naval conflict and was with Drake on his voyage around the world. This last, was the second time that the world was ever circumnavigated, Magellan's being the first. even tho Magellan did not live to finish the expedition.
