  • Name John POORE  [2
    • "A Memoir and Genealogy of John Poore": John, born in Newbury, June 20 1711, where he always lived, on the old homestead of his father's, and died there Sept. 15 1783; was a farmer; also kept the ferry over Parker River, until 1758, when the bridge was built. Of his real estate transactions, we find the following on record: Sold to John Pearson, of Rowley, four and one-half acres of marsh, on the Neck, in 1742, and bought of John Hale, of Boxford, a parcel of marsh in Newbury, situated southerly of the Neck, in 1750.

      He was a juryman; held many town offices; took an active part in the Revolution, as we find his name on a petition to discourage British trade.

      He made his will Aug. 9. 1782, in which is mentioned his wife and their children, all of whom were then living. [1]
