Description  The Rev. John Moore of Newtown, Long Island, Queens Co, New York After a sojourn in Lynn, he John was in Southampton by 6 April 1641, when he was granted a lot. On 16 March 1643 "John Moore was censured for saying Daniel How did vsurpe the execution of the place of Magistacy hee then to confesse his fayling yf hee shall bee at the next quarter Court." On 7 March 1644 John Moore was assigned to the third ward for the disposition of cast up whales. With Edward Howell and John Gosmer, he represented Southampton in the articles agreeing to its union with the Connecticut Colony on 30 May 1644. An order involving land on 6 March 1645 referred to "John Moores eight Acres." John Moore signed a record of inhabitants present at a meeting on 24 January 1647. John Moore was on the list of sixteen "perfect freemen inhabiting this Towne of Southampton on March 8, 1649," after Edward Howell Gent and John Gosmer Gent. This is the last record of his presence at Southampton. In the early 1650s, John Moore served in Hempstead replacing the Reverend Robert Fordham, who went to Southampton. John Moore was listed for two pounds on the Indian rate for 1656 at Middleburg (later called Newtown, now Elmhurts in Queens, New York City). In 1657 he was one of a group of purchasers from the Indians of the site for Middleburg. He had already been installed as minister by 1656 as the Dutch clergymen Johnnes Megapolensis and Samuel Drisius complained to Director General Stuyvesant on 15 January 1656 that in Moore's absence unqualified persons were preaching at Middleburg. The Dutch clergymen were friends of Jon Moore and mention him in reports.
