This is a partial genealogy that shows the Perley ancestry of the descendants of Eliza Annetta Perley and James Martin Eldridge of Beaver Harbour, NB.
Roy Eldridge:  (Please include a reference to the genealogy in the header of an email.)
Our Perley ancestry is: Allan1 - Thomas2 - Thomas3 - Asa4 - Asa5 - Amos6 - Thomas H.7 - Eliza Annetta8, who married James Martin Eldridge. 



Allan Perley  (born Wales 1608)
Moses Perley identifies a handwritten genealogy of the male descendents begun by Allan’s grandson Thomas.  (Thomas3, Thomas2, Allan1)


There are many different stories about Allan’s arrival in North America.

Geo. Aug. Perley claims Allan emigrated from Wales to Charlestown, Mass., on July 12, 1630.  He moved to Ipswich in 1634 and married Susanna Bokeson (Bokenson?) in 1635.  He died Dec 28, 1675, leaving Widow Susanna (1614- Feb 11, 1692)

An Allan Perley is listed at age 27, freemason, on 18 May 1642, in Ipswich


An Allen Perley arrived on the Planter from London in 1635.  Some claim this is the Allen Perley listed above. There are records of several Allan or Allen Perley’s in the early 1600’s.


Some claim he was born in Ipswich, MA, to William Farwell Perley, (1582 - ? in England, married abt. 1607 in England) which seems to be unreasonable.  Allan reportedly made at least 2 trips back to Wales.


GENERATION II  [Allan1]:             children of Allan & Susanna

I.          John Perley (b. 1636 in Ipswich, MA - Dec 15, 1729 in Boxford, MA) m Mary Howlett (abt. 1642, Ispswich - Oct 21, 1718, Boxford, MA) d/o Dea. Thomas Howlett & Alice French, in 1661


  II.         Samuel Perley (1640 - aft 1707) m Ruth Trumbull (Feb 23, 1645 - ) d/o Dea. John Trumble) & Elinor Chandler, on July 15, 1664


            *III.     Thomas Perley (of Rowley, MA, freemason in Newbury) (1640/41, Ipswich Mass - Sept 24, 1709 in Boxford Mass)

Moses Perley has Thomas m. July 6, 1667 to Lydia Peabody (1644 - Apr 30, 1715) daughter of Francis and Mary-Foster Peabody. (Mary was d/o Reginald Foster.)


                            Other sources have Thomas m Lydia (Peabody) Howlett (bapt. 1640-Apr 30, 1715), widow of Thomas Howlett, on July 8, 1667/68, d/o Francis & Lydia (?) Peabody (Pabodie)


            IV.       Nathaniel Perley (1643/44 - Apr 29, 1668 age 24)      


            V.        Sarah Perley (1648/49 -Jan 16, 1693/94) m William Watson (1648 at Ipswich - Jun 27, 1710 in Boxford, MA) on Jan 15,1670 in Newbury, MA.

                        or   Sarah m Capt. Joseph Andrews on Feb 1, 1681

            VI.       Timothy Perley (1653, Ipswich - Jan 25, 1718)

                                    m(1) Deborah ? (1657-)

                                    m(2) Dorothy (Perley) (1660- 1735)  (Possibly same wife)


            VII.      Martha Perley (Apr 20, 1657, Ipswich -) m Benjamin Coker (Jun 30, 1650, Newbury, MA - Mar 24,1704/5) s/o Robert Coker & Catherine [Coker]), on May 31, 1678.


Note:    In 1692, Thomas Perley (Pearly) Sr. was a member of the panel of the jury of the Oyer and Terminer Court at Salem (Salem witch trials).


            In the indictment of Elizabeth How (found guilty and executed July 19, 1692), four of her accusers were two of Thomas Perley’s brothers and their wives:


                        Timothy Perley (Pearly) and wife, Deborah.  (In the transcript of the indictment, Timothy is 38 and his wife 33 - this agrees with birth year of 1653  for Timothy and roughly 1657 for Deborah)


                        Samuel Perley and wife Ruth.  In the transcript of the indictment, Samuel is 52 and his wife 46.  This would agree with the Samuel listed above who was born in 1640 and his younger wife.

Moore Family Genealogy

Return to Top


While there is little doubt that James Moore of Newton, Long Island, NY and of New Brunswick is a descendant of the Reverend John Moore of Newton, NY, the ancestry of the Rev John Moore is not as clear.  Some sources have him as the son of Thomas Moore of Newton, while others have him as the son of John Moore of Crogham, Ireland.  James Moore's book (not the above James Moore) about The Rev. John Moore doesn't identify any ancestry for him.


The Collins Peerage of England, and the Peerage of Ireland don't support any relationship between The Rev. John Moore and Thomas de la Moor (ca 1200), whose descendants were in Benenden, Kent, England, and Crogham, Kings, Ireland, although many claim John is a descendant of Thomas.


There are 2 primary references for this genealogy:


1.       Moore, James W. (1844 – 1909):  Rev. John Moore of Newtown, Long Island, and some of his descendants, Chemical Pub. Co., Easton, PA, 1903.

                This book begins with the Reverend John Moore and lists subsequent generations, including the children of James Moore of New Brunswick and Newton.  Thomas Moore was identified from an internet source.  The History of Salem, MA, by Sidney Perley has both Thomas Sr, John and Thomas Jr in Salem as early as 1636, but does not specifically identify John as a son of Thomas, Sr.


                On a side note:  Thomas' granddaughter, Martha, (father Thomas Jr), m John Seaman.  Some sources list them as the parents of Hannah Seamen who m John Carman.  John Carman’s ggg granddaughter, Maria Carman, m Amos Perley and was the mother of Thomas H. Perley.  Thomas H. Perley m both Hannah Moore deVeber and Henrietta deVeber, daughters of Isaac deVeber and Jane Whitlock Moore, another possible descendant of Thomas Moore, Sr., only if the Rev. John is his son.

James Moore was born July 24, 1754 at Newton, (Long Island), New York. At the end of the American Revolutionary War, James Moore went to Nova Scotia to look for a place of settlement for his Loyalist family who anticipated that they would need to leave the newly formed United States. After a brief stay in Nova Scotia, Moore moved on to Saint John, New Brunswick, where he married a young widow, Elizabeth (Hallett) Seaman. The James Moore family eventually purchased 600 acres of land at Lower St. Mary's near Fredericton from disbanded Maryland Loyalists. Several other members of James Moore's family made visits to New Brunswick but none of them relocated permanently.  Late in 1798, James Moore, in poor health, visited his old home in Long Island where he died Feb. 25, 1799.

The five Moore children: John, Maria, Eliza, Jane and Hannah remained in New Brunswick with their mother after their father's death but made numerous visits to family in New York. Maria Moore married Samuel Carman, son of Loyalist Richard Carman and Sarah Horsfield Carman.  W.O. Raymond, a New Brunswick historian, was the great grandson of both James Moore and Richard Carman. Detailed information on the extended Moore/Carman families can be found in:

The Ancestry of the Family of William Odber Raymond, compiled by W.O. Raymond, 1920 [prepared and indexed by R.W. Hale 1983]. LC number : HIL-SPECAR CS 90 .R365 1983.

The fonds of James Moore consist mainly of correspondence exchanged between members of the Moore family in Fredericton and their relatives in New York State. The bulk of correspondence is addressed to either Maria (Moore) Carman or Eliza Moore. There are a half dozen letters from the 1830s addressed to Sarah Carman from her daughters-in-law in Bathurst, Musquash and St. Stephen. Also included in the fonds are legal documents such as deeds and estate and military papers.

The correspondence reflects the daily lives of upper class Loyalist women in New Brunswick. It also documents the ongoing connections with family in the United States and the movement back and forth for the generation growing up after the American Revolution. The women discuss their personal and social lives, as well as the lives of mutual friends and relatives. There is advice about the foolhardiness of a premature return to New York, interesting commentaries on the significance of correct spelling and grammar (written by an aunt to a schoolgirl), reports on sea travels, discussion of marital difficulties, expressions of anxiety over the possibility of renewed war between England and the United States and description of life in Bathurst, New Brunswick in 1830.
