Notes for JOHN MOORE:

From: Some Descendants of Thomas Bryant of Chester County, PA, 1977 by Miriam L. Luke and Frances L. Ferguson.

"JOHN MOORE is said to have been born in Essex Co., Eng. in 1611. A John Moore, age 24, laborer, sailed on the "Planter" from London 10 Apr. 1635 and arrived in Boston June 7th. In 1638 he signed the charter of the "Military Company of the Massachusetts," in Boston, now known as the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Co. of Mass. (Roster of that Co.) In Sept. 1642 he purchased the land of Edmund Rice in Sudbury, Mass. He took the Oath of Fidelity 9 July 1645 and was a town officer of Sudbury. Probably he was the John Moore, an early proprietor of Lancaster, Mass. However, the births and marriages of his 5 younger children were recorded in Sudbury and he gave the Lancaster land to his eldest son. His
wife was Elizabeth Whale, daughter of Philemon Whale of Colchester, Essex Co., Eng., whose will was probated 4 Apr. 1676. (See Vol. 63, New England Register.) John Moore died 6 Jan. 1673/4 and his will was probated 7 Apr. 1674, mentioning his wife, his eldest son, John of Lancaster, and sons William, Jacob, Joseph and Benjamin; also his daughters, the eldest Elizabeth, wife of Henry Rice, Mary, wife of Daniel Stone, and his youngest daughter, Lydia, wife of James Cutler. Elizabeth (Whale) Moore died 14 Dec. 1690. (Vol. 57, New England Register gives a detailed account of the descendants of John Moore of Sudbury, and includes the first 4 generations of the ancestry of Sarah Matilda (Moore) Bryant.

See for descendants of John Jr., Jonathon and Oliver.)

From Bullard and Allied Families, 1930 by Edgar J. Bullard,


The surname Moore came to England with the Conqueror, and among the survivors of the Battle of Hastings in 1066, was Thomas de Moore, who was the recipient of many favors at the hands of the triumphant invaders. Bearing on its roll the names of Sir John Moore and Tom Moore, this family has just reason to be proud of their honored surname.

JOHN MOORE, the immigrant ancestor of an early New England family of this name, was born in England, and is found on the town records of Sudbury, Massachusetts, as early as 1642, at which time he purchased of the pioneer, Edmund Rice, a house and land in Sudbury. The Rice farm was in the oldest part of the town, and was in that section later called Wayland. John Moore took the oath of fidelity in Sudbury, July 9, 1645, and died there January 6, 1674. His will, dated August 25, 1668, was proved April 7, 1674, at Cambridge, Massachusetts. He bequeathed to sons John of Lancaster, William, Jacob, Joseph (to whom he left the homestead), and Benjamin. Also daughters Elizabeth, wife of Henry Rice; Mary, wife of Daniel Stone; and Lydia, wife of James Cutler. The inventory of the estate showed goods valued at 804 pounds and 7 shillings. His widow, Elizabeth, was named executrix. He married, doubtless in England, Elizabeth, daughter of Philemon Whale. (See note.) Widow Elizabeth Moore died in Sudbury, December 14, 1690."


Until corrected, Elizabeth Whale's christening is listed in Chickney, Essex, England, on the same day she is born in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts.

I have Richard Moore as the son of Jacob Moore/Elizabeth Loker. Jacob was the son of John Moore (Mass. Artilleryman, emigrated from England on the "Susan and Ellen" in 1635) and Elizabeth(? Rice/Whale ?). Richard Moore moved from Sudbury to Oxford, MA. He was the first Justice of the peace of Oxford, first State Representative, was town Clerk, Selectman, and Treasuer of Oxford, Mass. He married Mary Collins and had eight children. I have a little more info, email me. Rayburn Killion <>

I haven't done any research on this line in a long time. I would say that you are right. Thank you for pointing it out to me. Elizabeth Whale was really a Rice. As her father was Henry Rice. He died in 1621. Her mother, Elziabeth Frost md. 2nd Philemon Whale. He died 24 Feb. 1675 in Sudbury, Mass. That's about all I know on them.
