Moore, William (b. 6 MAY 1699, d. 30 MAY 1783)

Note: Shortly after his marriage, about 1722, to a relative of the Earl of Wemyss his father gave him a large tract of land in Chester County, not far from Valley Forge. He lived there for the rest of his life and the stone house he built there is still called Moore Hall.

He served in the Provincial Assembly from 1733 until 1740, as a justice of the peace from 1741 until his death, as the presiding judge of the Chester County court during most of the period 1750-1776, and as Colonel of the Chester County Militia during the French and Indian War.

When frontier settlements were under attack after Braddock's defeat, he petitioned the Assembly for security and protection for these areas. That made him "obnoxious to the Quaker majority" and they attacked his intregity as a judge. He replied, calling the conduct of the assembly "Virulent and slanderous." He was arrested Jan 6 1758 for libel and for violating the privileges of the Assembly and spent three months in the Philadelphia common jail, being released only when the Assembly (which had forbidden the issuance of a writ of habeus corpus) adjourned. The governor and council investigated the judicial charges brought against him and he was completely exonerated.

Although, like most of his family, he was a loyalist when the Revolution began, he extended his hospitality to officers of the Continental Army during the encampment at Valley Forge.

There is an article on him in the Dictionary of American Biography.
