The moon Cordelia, the closest to Uranus, was one of 11 moons discovered by the space probe Voyager 2, in January, 1986 (one, Perdita, was not recognized as a moon for another 13 years).

Well, the most inner moons that are orbiting Uranus are Cordelia and Ophelia. Edit: I would say the "key moons" are the big ones that were discovered first. They are: Ariel, Miranda, Oberon, Titania, and Umbriel.

That depends on the distance between Uranus and the orbiting body. The closer a body is to the body that it orbits, the faster the orbital speed. The closest of Uranus' moons, Cordelia, takes a little over 8 hours to orbit Uranus. The farthest moon orbiting Uranus, Ferdinand, takes about 7.7 Earth years to complete one orbit.
