Palaeontologist and geologist. Was elected a fellow of the Geological Society in 1854. In Bath he made his important discovery of Rheatic Beds, which had previously been overlooked. From these beds Moore obtained twenty nine teeth of the one of the oldest known mammals. The backdrop to this fascinating portrait appears to show reproductions of geological maps and orders of the strata in the Bath area.
