Sir John Henry Moore

1756 - 1780


Son and heir of Sir Henry Moore (q.v.). The title ceased at his death. In his will, made in 1775 and proved 21/02/1780, he left his estates [and enslaved people] in Jamaica and other property to his sister Susanna Jane Dickson, on the proviso that he survived her husband Alexander Dickson. If he [Sir John Henry Moore] predeceased Alexander Dickson, then the estates were to go into trust for Susanna Jane Dickson. His trustees were Edward Long (his uncle) and Jacob Wilkinson (each of whom q.v.). He has an entry in the ODNB as 'poet.'
