notes

He was chief heir and executor for his brother Samuel, then came to New England and was sworn a freeman May 22, 1639. He brought his wife Catharine to Cambridge, MA., where he was granted land in 1638. Catharine who may have been his second wife died December 28, 1648, and he married next, the widow Elizabeth Perriman December 6, 1653, perhaps the widow of Thomas Perriman.

In 1634, Francis and his wife Catherine moved from England to Newbury, Mass.

It seems reasonable to think that he was the father of Cousin Thomas Moore, the mariner of Boston, who Edmund years later, on this side of the Atlantic made overseer of his will.[3]
