A Thomas Moore, son of Thomas Moore, was baptized 17 March 1705/6.Although there is no will the records seem to show that Thomas Moore the elder split his 200 acres in Surry between two of his sons, Thomas and Robert.Robert Barham’s great great uncle was Samuel Argall governor of Virginia.
In fact the register records do appear to confirm this.
80 acres was given to his son in 1759, and the other 100 acres must be part of the 200 acres sold to the elder in 1746.
It could be that Thomas Moore inherited the other half of the 200 acres and this plus the 80 is the 180 mentioned in the will.
Analysis of land records shows that he was probably a member of the Moore family of Gloucester County, VA.
Unfortunately, most of the Gloucester County records have burned, so that tracing back further is difficult.
In 1734 he purchased another 100 acres in Surry and resold it on and the deed was signed by Samuel Sands and Sarah Sands.
