Alexander More of New London, Connecticut, and East Hampton, New York

On March 28, 1689, at East Hampton, New York, Alexander More (or Moore) "of New London" acknowledged a deed drawn on March 25th by which Moore leased to Richard Shaw of East Hampton for ninety-nine years a house, orchard and land in New London.

From Patty Barthall Myers (1995) Ancestors Descendants Of Lewis Ross Freeman, p.16.


Monnette claimed she was a daughter of Captain John2 Moore (Samuel1) and Hope Robbins (d/o Daniel). There is no evidence that John and Hope (Robbins) Moore had a daughter named Martha. Willis Freeman said she was d/o Alexander Moore of New London, Conn. This seems much more likely since she named a son Alexander and in her wIll she mentioned land she owned in New London or New England.

Elias Freeman, great grandson of John Freeman, relates in part: "John Freeman was my ancestor, he was the first male child born in America of the Woodbridge stock, and was my great grandfather... he married a Scotch lass, named Martha Moore (whose father came from Glasgow in Scotland) and settled on the road leading from

Uniontown to the Oak Tree." (Willis Freeman Collection.)
