    The following was copied from the above source:
    Col. John Moore, (1686 So. Car.-1749 New York City), of Moore's Folly-
    on-the-Hudson near West Point and of White Hall, New York City, eldest
    son of the Hon. John MOORE of Philadelphia, and Lady Rebecca AXTELL,
    his wife, Alderman of the City, Member of the Colonial and King's
    Council, Prov. of New York, Col. commanding his Majesty's New York City
    regiment of Foot, Vestryman and Warden of Trinity Church, New York
    City, 1715 to 1728, m. in 1714 Frances LAMBERT, (1692-1782), of Hugue-
    not descent, who was brought to America in infancy in consequence of
    the bloody persecutions of the Protestants in France, and is accomn-
    plished as a lady 'most accomplished in looks and manners.' The family
    seat on the Hudson was acquired by him partly by purchase from Charles
    CONGREVE, Esq., and partly by patent; the residence known as White Hall
    in later years, Moore and Front Streets, New York City, built before
    1661 for his own use by Hon. Peter STUYVESANT, last of the Dutch Gover-
    nors, was purchased from the Corporation of New York. He left a large
    estate in the province of New York and City of Philadelphia, Penn.; the
    former by his will dated Sept 24, 1748, in the 22nd year of his
    Majesty's (George II), reign, was bequeathed to his 'well beloved wife'
    for life, excepting the family seat on the Hudson, devised to his son
    Stephen in fee, when he should reach his majority; the Philadelphia
    estate was left to his son, John, in fee, but that son, dying before
    his father, by codicil, that part of his estate was also bequeathed to
    his wife for life. They are both buried in the Trinity vault, upon
    which his name was inscribed in after years by his grandson, John
    MOORE, Esq., genealogist of New York City.

    will, HENSHAW's 'MOORE', by the Rt. Rev. J. P. K. HENSAHW., Bishop of
    Rhode Island. New York Colonial Documents, Vol. 6.).
    Note: - in 1664 King Charles II granted to his brother, the Duke of
    York, (afterwards James II), all the territory from the Connecticut
    River to the Delaware. The English demanded the surrender of New
    Amsterdam, now part of New York City, to which demand Governor STUYVE-
    SANT sent a defiant answer, but the municipal authorities being indis-
    posed to aid him, on Sept. 9, 1664, a treaty was signed at the above
    mansion, 'on his farm or bowery.' (the Bowery survives but the mansion
    was destroyed by fire in 1777), by which the city was surrendered to
    the English.
