Moore Coat of Arms Meaning

Two main symbols in the Moore coat of arms (erroneously called “Moore family crest”) are the Moor’s head and the marlet.

The head of a Moor is frequently borne on the arms of those at one time involved with crusades, possibly associated with some “deeds of prowess”. The head is shown typically in a realistic fashion but the precise details are left to the imagination and skills of the artist!

The martlet is by far the most common bird to appear in British Heraldry, perhaps only equalled by the eagle, however it is not a species ever to be found in an ornithologists handbook! The word itself is though to have come from the French word merlette, the female blackbird and itself a similar type of charge used in French Heraldry. Over time the image has become quite stylised, without visible legs or distinctive feathers. Wade suggests that this representation arises from “the appearance of the bird of paradise to ancient travellers”. Other bird species may be named in coats of arms (cornish chough is a frequent example) but in actual execution their appearance is often indistinguishable from the martlet.

Origin, Meaning and Family History of the Moore Name

Surname Name Meaning, Origin, and Etymology-1500
The name Moore is derived from the local ‘at the moor’, John o’ the Moor; or from residence near a boggy heath or moor, the Moorhouse; Mor, great, chief, tall, mighty, proud;  or Moar, a collector of manorial rents in the Isle of Man. In the Old French, it refers to someone dark-skinned, or of dark and swarthy complexion.

In Ireland, the Gaelic O’Mordha was composed of the elements O’, meaning descendant of, and Mordha, meaning proud or stately. In Scotland and Wales, the Gaelic word mor meant a large man. In Welsh, Mowr meant great.

Notables
Famous people with the Muir last name include: 1) Thomas Muir (1765-1798), who founded a society for parliamentary reform (1792) 2) Sir Jonas Moore came to the attention of Charles II because of his mathematical knowledge. He was appointed surveyor-general of the ordnance where his responsibilities were to examine the ordnance received to see that it was of good quality, and the mapping of fortifications. Sir Jonas was a governor of Christ’s Hospital and convinced Charles to endow a school for mathematics. Sir Jonas compiled a 2 volume “General System of Mathematics,” which was published after his death. He was born about 1620 and died 1681 3) Sir John Moore, son of Dr. John Moore the physician, became a distinguished English general, after entering the army in his fifteenth year. Due to his father’s great influence, he was able to rapidly rise to the rank of Lieutenant colonel before ever having seen service. He eventually served with distinction in the West Indies, Ireland and Holland. He was wounded in Egypt after which he turned to training troops and was very successful. His regiments formed the famous light division of the Duke of Wellington’s army in the Peninsular War, which did such good deeds, proving the soundness of Moore’s teaching method. He eventually died in battle, a hero. He was born in 1701 and died in 1809 4) Sir Thomas More was a distinguished English statesman and writer, was the son of Sir John More, one of the judges of the King’s Bench. After attending Oxford, he obtained a seat in Parliament. When Henry VIII became king, he was, in 1508, appointed judge of the sheriff’s court in London, and eventually received knighthood and a place in the Privy Council, and eventually Chancellor. He converted to the Roman Catholic religion and believed strongly in the papal authority. This led him to deny the king’s supremacy as head of the church in England. He was sent to the Tower, tried, and condemned to death. He is the author of “Utopia”, where he lays out a perfect commonwealth on an imaginary island. Sir Thomas had four children. His eldest daughter, Margaret, married a man named Roper. Sir Thomas More was born on Milk Street, London in 1480 and was beheaded in 1535.
