I have seen several items stating that Matthew Moores (c1628-1692)of Woodbridge, NJ married Sarah Savory d/o William Savory 27 May 1662.
FIRST SETTLERS OF PISCATAWAY AND WOODBRIDGE by Monette, we find "Marriages,-- Mathew Moore and Sara Laroy (Lary) (ct.r.) Mar 27, 1662. This was Sarah Savory, and not Laroy, a fair example of benighted Moores." I guess Monette felt Laroy/Lary was wrong and it should be Savory. He does not believe Court Records, I guess.
PIONEER IRISH IN NEW ENGLAND,by Michael J. O'Brien.
"That Cornelius Leary was in this country at least three years before his advent at Exeter, is evident from the record of the marriage of Sarah, daughter of Cornelius Leary, to Matthew Moore at Newbury, Mass, on March 27, 1661." This is in the Newbury, Mass Vital Records.
Perhaps Monette was a bit hasty in saying it should be Savory. The information on Cornelius Leary is very good. Among grantees of land recorded at Exeter was Cornelius Leary, 15 Oct 1664.
I have seen nothing that proves to me that Matthew Moores married Sarah Savory.
