1, The first mention, yet discovered, of Andrew Moore, /\ of Poquonnock, Conn., is the record of his marriage, which is as follows: "Andrew Moore & fara Phelpes yt was Dafter of famuell Phelpes ware married by capten Newberry, february. 15, 1671."' Samuel Phelps was the son of William, the immigrant, who came to Dorchester, Mass., in 1630, and thence to Windsor, Conn., in 1636. He married Sarah (dau. of Edward) Griswold Nov. 10, 1650, and "Sarah Phelps was born in March, the latter end of 1653." (JV/ndsor Tcnun Record.') The Phelps family came from Tewkesbury, England, on the ship Mary and John. Sarah Griswold, b. Kenilworth, England, in 1628, came to America with her father in 1639. The)' settled in Windsor, Conn. In 1673, 34 members of the church of Windsor, called the new church, signed a paper which Gov. Winthrop endorsed, "Windsor men of the new church, complaint in Winter, 1673." (See Stiles' Ancient JVindsor, Vol. I, p. 206.) In 1675 Matthew Grant paid Andrew Moore ;^i, 17s , on "warr account." This must have been for services during the destruction of Simsbury by the Indians. Jan. 23, 1674, the town, by Matthew Grant, paid Andrew Moore, Nathaniel Pinney and Joseph Griswold for making a new ferry boat. They were paid ^3, 6s., 8d., in barter, and it seems, too, that the tax levy was assigned before collection in the payment of debts, "In the good old colony times." Here is Andrew's share in payment of the ferry boat account:

2 bushels wheat, £0 — 8 — o Set off with Jeremy

2 bushels of Indan 5 — o Jillets that he owed him £0 — 7—0

Danels Haydns rate 10 — o Had of Math.

Abram Randel and Grant 2 boshel of Indan 5 — o

Abram Phelps rate 9—7 and 2lb 3 of flax 2 — 9

Job Drakes rate 9 — 7 and benaja Holcoms rate i — 2

rate 6—2

2-5 ;f3-6-8.

August 24, 1678, Andrew Moore and 34 others were sued by James Cornish for a school bill of £0 — 5 — 2. His oldest child, Sarah, was then but 6 years of age. It would seem that Andrew was a little slack in educational matters. Dec. 20, 1680, he was paid by the town for labor on the church. He had a grant of land at Salmon Brook, now Granby, Conn., in 1680, in which he is called "Andrew Moore the carpenter, of Windsor, Conn."

Major John Talcott, who had agreed to extinguish the Indian title to Simsbury for 300 acres of land, gives a gloomy account of this, at that time, western country. He says that he "can find no place where any thing considerable can be taken up, the most of that which some call meadow is full of small brush and vinesthrough which is no passing, or full of trees great and small, and in ye place where the best land of that sort is, there is no accomodation of upland to it saving only mighty tall mountaynes and Rockes and the way bad to it, and a great way to all of it, and will be dismally obscure and solitary to any that shall live upon it, and very hard coming at the market, not only because of the remoteness but badness of the passage, and the society of the neighborhood will be very thin, all which will be discouraging."

At a later date Andrew bought land of John Gozard on the "east side of the mountains bounded easterly by Simsbury easterly bounds, southerly by John Pettybone, his lot, (allias Jonathan Moore, his lot) the bredth of s'd lot westerly by the commons is fifty rods." March 29, 1715, Andrew Moore of Windsor, deeded to his son Benjamin Moore "for divers good causes and considerations me thereunto moving, but especially in consideration of my fatherly love and affection I have to my son Benjamin Moore," fifty acres of land in Turkey Hills, now East Granby. In the description of this land Andrew mentions his son William.

Andrew Moore lived in Windsor, where the birth of all his children is recorded except that of William, and died Nov. 29, 1719. The inventory of his estate was made on the 17th of December following, amounting to /320, and his widow, Sarah, was appointed administratrix. He had 15 acres of land in Windsor with house and barn, carpenter's tools, with farming implements, a cider mill, loom, spinning wheel, sword and belt and a library "prised at 8 shillings," besides two pieces of land in Simsbury. The distribution of the estate took place April 5, 1720, and each of his nine children took his share of the property after the widow's portion had been set off to her.
