and Mary PURVEY (1693-1778)
and Mary Purvey
married on 14 April 1713 at the parish church of St. Mary Magdalene in Bolney, Sussex. (They were not my direct

Richard Moore was baptised on 14 February 1688/9 in Bolney.
He was the son of Richard
Moore and Elizabeth Jupp (?-1727). Richard or his father
may have been buried on 23 March 1746/7 in Bolney - I am inclined to think
this was Richard senior, rather than junior.
Mary Purvey was baptised on 9 August 1693 in Bolney. She was
the eldest daughter of
Henry Purvey (1665-1711) and
(1668-1745). She may have been buried on 27 January 1761 in Bolney, as
Mary Moor, widow, but on 3 September 1761 a
Richard Moor was buried in Bolney. Then on 6 December
1778 another Mary Moor, widow was buried in Bolney.
Richard Moore and Mary Purvey
had 8 known children:
Mary Moore was baptised on 13 March 1714 in Bolney (as per the
IGI, but the SRS transcript does not include this baptism, therefore,
the original baptism register needs to be checked.)
Elizabeth Moor was baptised on 21 February 1717/8 in Bolney and
buried there with her brother Richard on 18 January 1722/3.
Richard Moor was baptised on 7 August 1720 in Bolney and buried
there on 18 January 1722/3.
Anne Moor was baptised on 14 April 1723 in Bolney.
Elizabeth Moor was baptised on 19 May 1726 in Bolney.
Elizabeth most probably married William Lucas by banns

He married Mary Voice in
1752. (They have their own page.)
Sarah Moore was baptised on 4 July 1731 in Bolney.
Richard Moore was baptised on 17 March 1733 in Bolney.
Richard may have married Christine Ridge by banns on 12
May 1760 in Cowfold. They were both then of Cowfold. The
witnesses to their marriage were Richard Boys and
Christian was baptised on 18 April 1731 in Cowfold and was the daughter
of Stephen Ridge and Sarah.

Cowfold. A transcript of the Cowfold register records that her
mother's name was Catherine.
