Origins of surname

This is either a name for somebody who lived on a moor or in a fen, both of which were meanings of the old English mor, or a nickname for someone of dark or swarthy complexion - a 'moor'.

Early records

This relatively common surname was present in Jersey in limited numbers in the 17th and 18th centuries, but did not really become established until early in the 19th.
