About Deac. John Moore



Dorchester fenceviewer, 24 May 1634 and 16 January 1636/7 and selectman, 8 November 1637 (Dorch TR). He and Thomas Moore, likely his brother, served as witnesses to the noncuperative will of John Russell in Dorchester in Sept 1633. Frequent deputy from Windsor to Connecticut General Court from 1653 until 1677. By 1640 in Windsor, he had five parcels from town grants.

The records of the second church of Dorchester open with a list of children whose parents are members of the Windsor Church and have been brought back to Dorchester for baptism. The first two names are Elizabeth and Thomas Moore. Since in 1677, Windsor records credit John with three children born in Windsor, it would seem that Elizabeth and Thomas were born in Dorchester.

An English trading post was founded in September of that year at Windsor, but families didn't arrive at the location for another two years after. It is possible that Hannah was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony, or back in England. But it is highly unlikely that this birth took place in Windsor.)

From the Find A Grave page on Deacon John Moore:

Birth: 1603, England

Death: Sep. 18, 1677 - Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut, USA

  • Born by 1603, based on estimated date of marriage.
  • Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1630. First settled in Dorchester; moved to Winsor in 1638.
  • Died in Windsor 18 Sep 1677.
  • Married ____ ____ by about 1628 (assuming that she was the mother of all his children). (Ben M. Angel notes: This presumption, that John's first wife was the mother of all children, is probably incorrect. She was probably the mother of his first child only. It's uncertain whether she came to the New World.)

John Moore was probably brother of Thomas Moore of Dorchester & Windsor. They appear together as witnesses to the uncupative will of John Russell on 3 Sep 1633. Most of the parcels of land in Windsor granted to John Moore were adjacent to parcels ranted to Thomas Moore.
