Susan Moore began working as a freelance professional historical researcher after graduating from the University of St. Andrews in 1974. Interest in Chancery Proceedings and other legal records soon followed, although Susan has worked on a wide range of historical subjects over the years.
Initially, genealogical research was her primary interest and she worked in Devon and then in Scotland, specialising in the more challenging cases that involved knowledge of palaeography and Latin. This was followed by a long period in London where the emphasis moved to the history of houses and manorial lordships.
Now based in Somerset, Susan works part time. Recent research projects include work for the National Trust, the history of a Somerset village and manor, unravelling various families who lived in a small isolated valley in Kent, and work on tax records in the National Archives to clarify the medieval and early modern ownership and occupation of lands in north west Wales.
All research is undertaken personally by Susan Moore.
