"MANY Moores from England, Scotland and Ireland came to New England, and among the earlier of these settlers was John Moore of Sudbury, the father of numerous descendants. These have settled, as a rule, in middle and western Massachusetts, though two branches have left the State, one to go to Maine and one to Connecticut.
The name was spelled in various ways by various members: Moore, Moor, More and Moors, never Mooar, but for the sake of uniformity the spelling Moore will be retained throughout this article.
1. JOHN1 MOORE bought a house and land of Edmund Rice in 1642, in that part of Sudbury which afterwards became Wayland. He took the oath of fidelity on July 9, 1645. He married, in Sudbury, Elizabeth, daughter of Philemon Whale, who oulived him. On August 25, 1668, he made his will, in which he refers to his "age." He died Jan. 6, 1673-4, and his will was probated April 7, 1674 (Worcester Co. Probate, 10921). He mentions his sons John, of Lancaster, William, Jacob, Joseph, to whom he leaves his house, and Benjamin; also his daughters Elizabeth, wife of Henry Rice, Mary, wife of Daniel Stone, and Lydia, wife of James Cutler. His widow Elizabeth was named as Executrix. The inventory of his estate showed a valuation of £804:7:0. She died Dec. 14, 1690.
