"Robert Tyrrell carried the title of Councilor and Guardian of Reading. The name was TYRRELL in England; it became Terrell in America. We have chose to show the change at this point, but in truth, the change was gradual."


"Robert is listed as the son of Sir Timothy Terrell and Elizabeth Watson in one record.

Robert is listed as the son of William Terrell and Margaret Richmond in another record.

His ancestry cannot be truly determined from documentation known."


"The author (Coldham) writes: "The relationship of the New Kent Tyrrells was established beyond reasonable doubt by the location of the will of ROBERT Terrell of Reading, Berkshire, clothier, dated 1643." Robert names the following children in his will -- Robert, RICHMOND, William, Timothy, Maria, Margaret, John. He mentions unnamed children deceased; his wife Jane, (eldest) son John and brother-in-law Richard Hunt were appointed executors."

Early History

The site on which the Moore House now stands was first patented by Governor John Harvey in the 1630's, and was named "York Plantation." A century later, it was part of a 500 acre plantation called "Temple Farm" where Lawrence Smith II built a family home. In 1754, the estate passed to Smith's son, Robert. By 1760, however, Robert found himself in financial straits, and was forced to sell the farm that had been in his family for three generations. He sold the 500 acre estate to his brother-in-law, Augustine Moore.


Augustine Moore


Augustine Moore began his career as a merchant at the age of 14, when he became an apprentice to William Nelson of Yorktown. He served the Nelson firm for many years, and became parter of "Thos Nelson, Jr. & Co." in 1773.

In 1767, Augustine inherited three plantations from his father, establishing him as a landowner of some estate. The following year he purchased "Temple Farm", and eventually moved his wife and son into the present plantation house to become a gentleman farmer in the fashion then prevalent in Virginia.

In 1781, when General Cornwallis moved his British army into Yorktown, many residents left their homes and fled the area. The Moore family may also have abandoned their home, temporarily moving to Richmond during the Yorktown Siege. What they certainly could not have known, was that their home would become a site of national significance on October 18, 1781, when it was selected to be the backdrop for one of the final scenes of the American Revolution.


The Surrender Negotiations


At 10 o'clock on the morning of October 17, 1781, a drummer beating a "parley," and a British officer with a flag of truce, mounted a parapet south of Yorktown. The allies saw the signal, and soon the incessant, devastating artillery fire ceased. A hushed stillness fell over the field.

Lord Cornwallis, realizing the defeat of his army was inevitable, sent a message to General George Washington:


"Sir, I propose a cessation of hostilities for twenty-four hours, and that two officers may be appointed by each side, to meet at Mr. Moore's house, to settle terms for the surrender of the posts of York and Gloucester."


Why Cornwallis selected the Moore House for the negotiations was not explained, however, there are a number of possibilities.The Moore House was well outside the line of siege fire, and therefore, not damaged. It was a neutral location, hiding the British situation in town, and possibly selected in the hope of securing better surrender terms. And finally, it was a convenient location for both sides to reach, as it was situated along the York River

Washington agreed to only a two hour cease fire for Cornwallis to submit general terms of surrender. Messages continued to pass over the battlefield between the two commanders.

Finally, on the afternoon of October 18, the two British commissioners, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Dundas and Major Alexander Ross met in "Mr. Moore's house" with the allied officers, Lieutenant Colonel John Laurens, for the Americans, and Second Colonel Viscount de Noailles (Marquis de Lafayette's brother-in-law), representing the French.

The negotiations ended before midnight, and Laurens carried a rough draft of the articles to General Washington. Washington, however, was not completely happy with the results and made a few minor changes. Once the articles were revised and redrafted, a copy was sent to Cornwallis in Yorktown for his signature.


The Articles


The Articles of Capitulation were terms for the surrender of Cornwallis's British army. The 14 articles directed the surrender from the disposition of the troops, artillery, and arms, to even the surrender ceremony itself.

The articles directed where the troops, now prisoners of war, were to be sent. The soldiers were marched off to camps in Frederick, Maryland, and Winchester, Virginia. One field officer for every 50 men was allowed to reside near their respective regiments to witness their treatment and deliver clothing and other necessaries to the soldiers at the camps. All other officers were paroled and allowed to go to Europe, New York, or any other American post then in possession of the British forces, on the condition they would no longer fight until properly exchanged.

Another article provided for the care of the sick and wounded prisoners. Proper hospitals would be furnished, with patients attended by their surgeons on parole. Medicine and supplies were to be provided by the American hospitals, the British stores in both York and Gloucester, and passports would be issued to procure further supplies from New York if necessary.

The third article referred to the surrender ceremony and contained the provision that deprived the British of the honors war. Customary honors allowed the surrendering troops to march out of their works with their regimental flags flying and playing an enemy's tune in honor of the victor. George Washington was not going to allow these honors, instead he stated, " The same honors will be granted to the surrendering army as granted to the garrison of Charlestown". In May, 1780, an American army was captured at Charleston, South Carolina and not given the honors of war, therefore, in retaliation, the British would not be granted them at Yorktown. The troops, the article read, were to "...march out...with shouldered arms, colors cased, and drums beating a British or German march. They are then to ground their arms and return to their encampment, where they will remain until they are dispatched to the places of their destination..."

By the afternoon of October 19th, 1781, both commanders had signed the Articles of Capitulation, and the defeated British army was marching out from Yorktown to lay down their arms, ending the last major battle of the American Revolution.


Preservation Efforts


The Moore House remained in the Moore family until 1797, when it passed to the son of Thomas Nelson Jr., Hugh Nelson, after the death of both Augustine and his wife Lucy. Thereafter, the house changed hands many times.

During the 1862 Peninsula Campaign of the Civil War, military action around Yorktown caused considerable damage to the Moore House. Sitting in between Confederate lines in Yorktown and the Union forces on Wormley Creek, the house was within easy range of shell fire. Later, foraging soldiers stripped away siding and other usable wood for


The house remained derelict until 1881 when much needed repairs and some additions were made in preparation for the Centennial Celebration of the allied victory at Yorktown. The newly refurbished structure housed dignitaries during the celebration.

In the years between 1931 and 1934, the National Park Service, which had just established Colonial National Monument (later Historical Park), restored the Moore House to its original colonial appearance. Archeology and historic images were used to assist in its restoration.

The restoration was one of the first of its kind for the National Park Service. The house was completed and formally dedicated on October 18-19, 1934, the 153rd anniversary of the surrender of Cornwallis and his British army.

***Comments made by another researcher***

"Reference to records in the State Land Office shows that a JOHN MOORE patented 3 July 1635 (not 1638) 200 acres (not 285) in Elizabeth City Co., on the Little Poquoson adjacent Thomas Boulding and Thomas Garnett, and runniing south into the woods towards the head of Broad Creek and that AUGUSTINE MOORE patented 19 June 1676, 285 ac. in Eliz. City Co. at the head of the Little Poquoson Creek 200 ac. of which land was granted to JOHN MOORE, father of the said AUGUSTINE MOORE, by patent dated 3 July 1635, and the other 85 acres in Eliz. City. Co., was granted in 1638 to a JOSEPH MOORE (not JOHN MOORE).


The above RootsWeb entry has him and his wife born in Ireland. Another entry shows them born in Reading, Berkshire England. It gives his wife's last name as Meirrett.


His wife's last name is often spelled Merritt.

Moore Family of  Tidewater, Virginia


MOORE FAMILY. The Moore family begins with John Moore, who patented 285 acres in Elizabeth City county in 1638. He came to Virginia on the "Bona Nova" in 1620, at the age of thirty-six. His wife, Elizabeth Moore, came in the Abigail in 1622. They were living at Elizabeth City In 1625 (Hotten). In 1676 Augustine Moore (2) of the Old Poquoson, Elizabeth City, patented the land formerly granted to his father, John. He married, perhaps twice, first Annie, named in a land grant in I652 and second, Elizabeth, named in Elizabeth City county records. Augustine Moore (2) died before 1688. He had issue (1) John, (2) Elizabeth who married Captain John Goodwin. (3) Capt. Augustine Moore, one of the justices of Elizabeth City county, who probably married Mary Woolley, since his wife, Mary, in 1677, in a deed in Lancaster county calls George Woolley "Brother." (Edmund Sweeny, died 1698, calls Moore brother). Issue of Captain Moore (3); John, Edward, Merritt, Daniel, Martha, married Dixon, Ann, William and Augustine. Of these, Daniel Moore (4) lived in York county, married first, Elizabeth, daughter of James Selater, second, Mary, daughter of Anthony Watts and widow of John Lewellin, third, Mary Kerby, widow of Anthony Robinson, Jr. Daniel Moore died in 1767, and his widow, Mary, and son, Augustine lived at the "Temple Farm" York county and were there at the time of the surrender of Lord Cornwallis."

Reference to records in the State Land Office shows that a John Moore patented, July 3, 1635 (not 1638), 200 acres (not 285 acres) in Elizabeth City county on the Little Poquoson adjoining Thomas Bouldiug and Thomas Garnett, and running south into the woods towards the head of Broad Creek, and that Augustine Moore patented June 19, 1676, 285 acres in Elizabeth City county, at the head of the Little Poquoson creek, 200 acres of which land was granted to John Moore, father of the said Augustine Moore; by patent dated July 3, 1635, and the other 85 acres found within the bounds of the aforementioned tract. A patent for 200 acres in Elizabeth City county was granted in 1638 to a Joseph Moore (not John Moore), and evidently the author confused the two.

Another note, seemingly on this Moore family, is contained in a footnote accompanying the article on "Temple Farm", previously referred to, which note reads as follows:

"Augustine Moore, patent June 29, 1652, headrights, Anne his wife, Augustine (2) his son. Capt. Augustine Moore (2) lived in the "Old Pocoson" precinct in Elizabeth City county of which he was Justice, High Sheriff, &c., in 1697, probably the son mentioned in the patent above (June 29, 1652). Daniel (3), probably the son of Augustine (2), lived in the "New Pocoson" in York county, was Justice, Sheriff, &c, will proved 16 March, 1767, m. first Elizabeth, d. of James Selater (and Mary Selater), son of Rev. James Selater; issue:

m. Edmund Tabb (will proved 15 March 1762, who had Elizabeth, m ___ Smith (issue:

Augustine, b March 6, 1731, will proved 15 Sept, 1788.

Martha, b. May 1734, m. ____ Sweny.

Daniel Moore; married, 2nd Mary, daughter of John Lewellin, who survived him."

Then are several apparent discrepancies in the two notes on the Moore Family quoted above, but none except one of any particular importance. In one note Augustine Moore; son of John Moore, of Elizabeth City county, patents land in 1676, and in the other an Augustine Moore, seemingly the same Augustine, patents land in 1652. The patent granted Augustine Moore in 1676 was for the same land on Little Poquoson in Elizabeth City county granted his father, John Moore; in 1635, and this certainly places this Augustine. The patent granted Augustine Moore in 1652 was for 650 acres of land on the north-east side of Peayanketank river, in what was then Lancaster county now Middlesex. And, among the thirteen headrights, all named in the record, are the patentee's own name, Augustine, and also the name of his wife, Anne, and of his son Augustine, Junior, so that it seems likely that this is another Augustine Moore, who had just come to Virginia, though from what follows in the text of the note just quoted it would appear that Doctor Tyler, who made this note, thought that the two Augustines were one and the same person. Also, in one note Daniel Moore is credited with three wives in the other with only two, and in one Daniel's second wife is the widow of John Lewellin, in the other she is John Lewellin's daughter.

The records in the State Land Office show a number of patents issued in the early days of the Colony to persons named Moore or More, but only three others in Elizabeth City county, in addition to those previously mentioned, two to Joseph Moore, each for 200 acres on the old Poquoson river, one in 1636, the other in 1638, and the other to William Moore, son of Joseph, in 1656, for 200 acres previously assigned to his father. Joseph may or may not have been related to John. It is immaterial. There were a number of other patents issued in the name of John Moore, or More, particularly a John More in Isle of Wight, whose first patent was granted in February, 1632. He was evidently a wealthy man, was a member of the House of Burgesses, and was undoubtedly a different individual from the John Moore of Elizabeth City county. John More in Isle of Wight, and Augustine More in King William were by all odds the wealthiest and the most prominent of the early Moores in Virginia. The latter was granted his first patent in 1723, though he must have been in Virginia prior to that. Augustine is a frequently encountered given name among the Moores or Mores of that period, and, as Doctor Tyler says, they may all have had a common ancestor, and, therefore, have been related, though possibly remotely in some instances. Certainly Augustine, of King William, was a very different type of man from the Moores of York and Elizabeth City counties.

Both the "Moore Family" notes in the William and Mary College Quarterly, October, 1900, and in Mrs. Key's article in the "Baltimore Sun," May 27, 1906, give the same names to the eight children of Augustine Moore (3) and Mary Woolley Moore, of Elizabeth City county. And the will of Augustine "More" (spelled with one "o"), which will was written in 1736 and admitted to probate in 1737, mentions a number of these children, namely, a brother John, a brother Merritt, a brother Daniel, a sister Martha Dixon, and a brother William, who is said to be "deceased," all of whom are mentioned in the Quarterly article, and in Mrs. Keys' Article, as names of the children of Augustine (3) and Mary Woolley Moore, but the will does not mention Edward or Ann, names of other children of Augustine (3), and Mary Woolley Moore, mentioned both in the Quarterly article, and in Mrs. Keys' article. Mrs. Ritchey had assumed that William Moore, the father of Jeremiah, was the son of Augustine Moore (3), but naturally, this William (4), who was dead in 1736 when the will was written could not have been the father of Jeremiah who was born in 1746.

Augustine' "More" (4) in his will mentions two children of this brother William (4), an Augustine (5), and an Elizabeth (5), but he does not mention a William (5), or a Daniel (5), or any other child of his brother William (4), or a child of any of his other brothers or sisters, though his brother Daniel had three children living at this time, and Augustine (4) may have had other nephews and nieces also living in 1735.
