About Thomas Moore

Thomas Moore 1722 - 1784 New London CT lived at White Hall, NYC until it was burned by the British during the Rev., married 1744 Elizabeth Channing 1728 - 1805


Thomas Moore, Esq., M.A. (Westminster) of White Hall, 1722-1784, Vestryman of Trinity Church 1750-1762 and 1779-1784 In 1744, he married Elizabeth, (1728-1805), daughter of William Channing, Esq, of Dorchester, England, Agent of British Navy at New York, and Ann BOWNE, his wife, of Middletown, New Jersey.

Residence: "White Hall" - Moore and Front Streets in New York.

He tried business ventures in Peekskill and Sing Sing, but each failed. Returning to NYC, he served as King's guager in the Customs Department from 1766-70 and again from 1777-83. The family mansion "White Hall", so named for its proximity to Whitehall Slip, was used as the Custom House until it burned in the fire of Sep. 1776.

Thomas Moore, Esq., though an uncompromising Tory like most of his family, suffered much from the depredations of British troops at his brother Stephen's estate at West Point, to which the family fled during the brief occupation of American troops of the City during the Revolutionary War. He died at Norwich, New London, Connecticut, and was returned to New York for burial in the family vault. Inscription: John Moore Family Vault
