I have traced my family history to George Charles Moore (b. abt 1819), Congleton, Cheshire. He was married to Emma Wood in March 1839. His father was John Moore, who was deceased before 1839. Curiously, I found a geneology of the Moore's of Appleby among some papers in a family member's attic. However, I cannot find a connection between the Moore's of Appleby and "my" Moore's. Any clues would be welcomed!
'Moore' of course is quite a common surname so there may be no connection with the Appleby Moores, but you never know! I suggest you have a look through my 'Appleby In Focus' articles on this web-site. Numbers 12 to 16 give their history along with chunks of their family tree. I'm not aware of any connection with Congleton. - Richard D.
