  • Name John MOORE  [1
    • John Moore was born before his parents came to Sudbury. It was probably his father who was proprietor at Lancaster on March 11, 1653/4, and probably John Moore was given his father's land at Lancaster as his share in the estate, as he only received five shillings in his father's will, with the comment that he had already received his portion.

      John Moore married at Sudbury, on November 16, 1654, Ann Sith, daughter of John and Alice Smith. She died at Lancaster, on March 10, 1670/1, and he married secondly, Judith, who survived him. On October 31, 1660, John Smith deeded twenty acres of land in Lancaster to his son-in-law as a marriage portion for his daughter. On April 12, 1665, he deeded John Moore all his lands in Lancaster in return for the care they had given him.

      In 1689, John Moore served as Deputy from Lancaster to the General Court. He was an Ensign, and trained the fist military company of the town. In 1700, he deeded his land, reserving the house, to Benjamin Bellows, in return for the support of himself and his wife Judith, for life. The inventory of "Ensign John Moore's" estate was taken on September 23, 1702. The nuncupative will of John Moore, Sr., was accepted for probate on November 26, 1703, at Lancaster. [1]
