Hi I have a Tucker in my tree - an Ellen Tucker, please read below.
cheers colin

I am seeking any information at all from Jamaica on the family of Samuel Edward Moore

Surname: MOORE
Given Names: Saml
Event: D
Spouse Surname/Father: Moore Samuel
Spouse Gvn Names/Mother: Mary Ann UNKNOWN
Age: 74:
Death Place: Ballarat Australia
Year: 1903
Or Ellen tucker

Birth 1834
In Kingston, Jamaica
Death 1899
In Coolgardie, , Western Australia, Australia

My great great grandfather was Samuel Edward Moore he was 31 year old, an Engineer, and was born in Jamaica, West Indies (In 1829?). Wife Ellen Tucker was 27, and also born in Jamaica, West Indies (In 1833?). My notes say that Samuel and Ellen married in Kingston, Jamaica in March 1853, and then boarded the Glentanner for Melbourne, Australia (via Bermuda, Bahia (Brazil) and Algoa Bay (South Africa) on 10 April 1853. Charles Glentanner Moore my great grandfather was born at sea during the 3 month trip. Mary Elizabeth was then their first Australian child, born at Ballarat in 1856.

I met a woman a a few years back who was also a descendant from Samuel and Ellen, and she was seriously into genealogy. She told me that the "dark features" actually came from Ellen Tucker, and that Ellen's grandfather(?) was a freed slave.

I am the great great granddaughter of Samuel Edward Moore who came to Australia on the Glentanner ship from Jamaica in 1853. Samuel was a Mechanical Engineer living in Ballart, I have a wonderful photo of him with one of his daughters and an invention he created back in 1870.

My family records indicate that his wife Ellen Moore (nee Tucker) came over on the same ship and gave birth to a son 'Charles Glentanner Moore'. No shipping records I have found in Australia indicate this so far, they only say that Samuel arrived on the Glentanner. Charles is the oldest brother to my grandmothers father Samuel Edward Moore (B1869 Ballarat, Victoria, Australia).

My Grandmother inherited many photos which date back to the early 1850's but alas not many have names on them, some are obvious though as Samuel or Ellen Moore’s Creole heritage is defiantly passed down to their daughters with the nappy hair (afro) and dark skin. If anyone would like to see any of my photographs please let me know I would be happy to share with you.

After my grandmother’s mother died her father Samuel could not look after her and her Aunty Henrietta Julianna Moore (Samuel's older sister) (married Brookes) adopted her thus the reason I have the photos etc.

I have been doing family research since the early 1990s and found the hardest area to find documents is Jamaican records. I am joining this index in the hope of finding more information on where he lived in Jamaica, if he was born in Jamaica or United Kingdom, was Ellen Tucker or Samuel’s family freed slaves, or slave owners, is Ellen’s heritage crossed with Spain... etc.

Hi,

I descend from Ellen Tucker and Samuel Edward Moore through their daughter Susan Louisa who died shortly after giving birth to my Grandpa so her husband Carl Peters married again and had another tribe of kids via Newman. I have the same questions but also wondered if Samuel Moore senior could have been born in Ireland rather than UK? I don't know for sure if Samuel Edward Moore junior was born in Jamaica or just moved there. I wish I could know more about Ellen's family. Keep posting when you find something please.
