The Immigrant

Thomas Moore and his family were in Salem, Mass in the 1630's. Thomas Moore, Sr. died there in 1636. Thomas Moore, Jr. married, Martha, the sister of Reverend John Youngs of Southold, Long Island. He was in Southold, Long Island, New York by 1650 and died there in 1691.

Born: Possibly abt 1580, in, or near, possibly Southwold, England

Spouse of Thomas, Sr.: Ann (____). She survived him.

Spouses of Thomas, Jr.:

1) 1635-1638 Margaret Youngs, sister of Rev John Youngs of Southold, Long Island; as well as Joseph and Christopher Youngs, also immigrants. Probably mother to all of his children and probably married in England. She died June 27, 1671, in Southold, Long Island, New York

2) Aft 1671. (Death of first wife) Catherine Westcott, Per Suffolk Co Register, Vol 1, No. 1, Jun 1975, fr Ned E-mail: Possibly married 1st Thomas Doxy, 2nd Daniel Lane. She survived him.

Migration: At least by 1636. It is likely that most of the children of Thomas Moore, Sr were adults or close to it. If he was born in 1580, he would have been 56. His kids would have been from teenagers up to 40 years in age. I don't know if all of the family came at once, or if all of the children came to America. It is most likely that Thomas, Jr. and Margaret Youngs were married in England and came together.

Residences: It appears that Thomas, Sr. lived and died in Salem, Mass. It appears that Thomas, Jr. was in Salem until at least 1650, then to Southold, Long Island, where Rev John Youngs was located. It appears that most of his children married Southold sons and daughters.

Died: Thomas, Sr. Before 1636 in prob Salem. Suffolk County Historical Society Register, Vol 1, No. 1, Jun 1975, reports that wife Ann joined the church as a widow in 1636. Thomas Moore, Jr. died June 27, 1691, in Southold, Long Island, New York

- This is the text version of the PDF file THE MOORE FAMILY Thomas Moore and his parents came from Southwold, Suffolk County in England to the Puritan Colony at Salem, Massachusetts about 1630. Young Thomas married Martha Youngs in Salem and they moved to Southhold on Long Island, New York in about 1651 and it was here their daughter, Elizabeth married Richard Clark. The Clark's daughter, Elizabeth, married John Marsh. Other sections of this history deal with the Marsh and Clark families, this brief section will deal with the Moore Family up until the time they married into my Clark lineage. THOMAS MOORE SENIOR The earliest firm record that I have concerns a Thomas Moore who would have been born in England sometime around 1585 or so. He was probably in the area of Southwold, Suffolk on the coast northeast of London. It was here that he married. His wife's name was Ann, but her last name is unknown. They had a child baptized there in 1630 and must have left almost immediately afterwards for America. The family sailed to Salem and in 1631, Thomas Moore was sent by John Mason of Salem to settle in the Province of New Hampshire. It would seem he died there, or possibly returned to Salem to die. He had passed away by July 11, 1636 because at that time there was a record of Thomas Moore son of Widow Moore and his wife are received as inhabitants of Salem, Massachusetts.' Nothing else is known about Thomas Moore Senior. Ann Moore was a midwife in Salem and the last note of her there was on August 17, 1668 when she sold her house and lot in Salem. By that time her son had moved to Long Island so she had elected to remain in Salem, perhaps with another of her children. I am only aware of two children, Thomas junior and Mary who married Joseph Grafton in Salem. There was that son baptized in 1630, but I do not know anything about him. Our line descends from the son, Thomas Moore
