Young (Youngs/Yonges) was born in Southold, England on
July 1, 1613. I believe she emigrated to Salem, MA in
1636, along with her husband Thomas Moore Jr., his family
and her sister Mary.
a member of the first generation of the Young family to
live in America, is the eighth child of Rev. Christopher
Young, who was the Vicar of Reyden, Southold, Suffolk,
England. (Sadly, records show that two of her siblings
died by drowning on the same day in 1626. I wonder what
father, the Reverend Christopher Young, died in Southold,
England in 1626 and was buried in the chancel of the church
at Southold. The children emigrated a few years later,
most likely for reasons of religious freedom.
