    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Early New England People": John Poore came from Wiltshire, England, to New England in 1635. In 1638, Alice Poore, aged 20, Samuel Poore, aged 18, and Daniel Poore, aged 14, came to New England with the family of Richard Dummer, in the ship Bevis, from the port of Southampton, England. there was also a Thomas Poore, who died in Andover, Moass., in 1695. It is believed that they were all members of the same family. they are supposed to have been descendants of Philip Poor of Amersbury, Wiltshire, England; a tradition to this effect, says Major Benjamin Perley Poore, has come down in the family here, and was also transmited to the family of Sir Edward Poore of Wiltshire, England. Mr. Joseph Fullerton, in his "History of Raymond, New Hampshire," says that he has made investigations for the purpose of connecting the American family of Poore with the old English family, and finds evidence of such a connection, although he has not as yet found positive proof of the fact. Major Poore says: "Philip Poor of Amesbury, England, who died in 1571, aged 71 years, added a final e to his name and the Wiltshire Poores have since used it. It is also certain that the first settlers of the name in New England spelled their name with the final e, although in some branches of the different families it was subsequently omitted, to be in some instances restored."
      In the list of the names of those who composed the first English colony in Virginia, in 1585, is the name of Richard Poore.
      John Poore settled in Newbury on the south-easterly side of the Parker River, in the part of town called the Neck. He was one of the original proprietors of the town. The house built by him is still standing, and has always remained in the family. "Nov. 20, (1650) the town granted John Poore, twenty-two acres of upland, in consequence of his living so remote from meeting and difficulty in coming over the ferry and for his satisfaction." (History of Newbury by Cofin.) John Poore, wer are told, was attorney for his brother Daniel, in a case brought by the latter "against Jo Godfrey and Walter Wright."
      John Poore died while hunting for game in the woods. He lost his way and perished.
