About Samuel More, the Parliamentarian

There is no record of where Katherine lived after Samuel divorced her, or of when and where she died. We presume that she died in 1625, the year when Samuel remarried and proceeded to produce numerous male heirs. We do not know where she was buried.

notes

How to get rid of unwanted children? He had connections to the Right Honorable Edward Lord Zouche of St. Maur and Cantalupe, 11th Baron Zouche of Harringworth, a member of King James' Privy Council. Lord Zouche was a Puritan sympathizer, and involved with the London Virginia Company. He arranged with Thomas Weston to put the children in the care of influential members of the Separatist Colony. Samuel More paid £80, an adult passage, guaranteeing them a fair allotment of land, that they would not be seen as indentured servants (thus differing from the Virginia model). He also invested $20 in the overall venture, the profits to go to the most deserving of the children. [51]
