Rebecca Moor was born about 1734.1

She married [O20] David Sutton on the 14th April 1768, at the meeting house in Newcastle, where she lived at that date (at some stage she was described as "of Wheelbarrow Hall"); a spinster, her parents are not named. Their children were: William (1770–1791), Thomas (1771 – before 1828), and [O19] Deborah (1773–1848).2

She attended monthly meetings in 1772, 1781 and 1782 (at least), as her signature is to be found on on testimonies to the life of deceased friends.3

She died at Newcastle on 1 January 1783, and her body was buried in Newcastle Friends’ burying ground on the 5th.4
