Birth*1638Jane Moor was born in 1638 in Cheshire, England.3
Relationship Note*The Sharpless sources suggested that Jane Moor and Daniel Moor of Hankelow, Cheshire, were "perhaps"/"probably" siblings.4,3
Name-SpellingsThe more common spelling of the MOOR surname has, over time, become MOORE. In the earlier years in England, this family's name was most often spelled MOOR. Later, in America, their name was most often spelled MOORE.5,6
Marriage*27 April 1662She married John Sharpless, son of Geoffrey Sharples and Margaret Ashley, on 27 April 1662, or possibly April, in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.2,7,8,9,10
Name-SpellingsThe SHARPLESS surname was initially spelled SHARPLES, both in England and in Pennsylvania. Over the years, the surname became universally spelled SHARPLESS.11
Will*4 May 1682Before leaving England, Jane's husband John Sharples of Hatherton, in the County of Chester, yeoman, made a will dated 4 May 1682. The will named his primary beneficiaries as his wife, Jane Sharples, and son, John Sharples the younger. The will described his property in England as his messuage and tenement in Blakenhall, which he held from Sir Thomas Delves of Dodington, in the County of Chester, Baronet, for a period of 99 years. One-half was bequeathed to his son John, and the other half to his wife Jane for her life, with the remainder to his son John. He gave £50 to his wife Jane, and divided the rest of his goods equally among his younger children, but if all had died before receiving their shares, then each of his executors was to receive £5. Additionally, if all of his children were dead at his wife's death, then all of his goods were to be divided between his sister Mary Ellis, his sister Rebecca Caldwell and her child, and the three children of his sister Ellen Jennings of Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire.12,13,14
Immigration*14 August 1682Jane and John Sharples immigrated with their family from England to Pennsylvania, landing at what would become Chester, Chester County, on 14 August 1682, more than two months prior to the arrival of William Penn. John had not disposed all of his home property before leaving England, in case he was unhappy in the New World and wanted to return home.15,4,16
Residence*Jane's husband had purchased 1000 acres from William Penn by lease and release, part of which the family took possession of on Ridley Creek, about two miles northwest of Chester. They cut down a large tree and took shelter among the boughs for about six weeks while they built a cabin against a rock. The rock became the back of their chimney and, as late as 1881, could still be seen to contain the date of 1682, the date their cabin was built. The family lived in the cabin for about twenty years. The remaining land purchased from Penn was possessed partly in Middletown, and partly in Nether Providence.5

Death*1 November 1722She died on 1 November 1722 in Chester County in the 84th year of her age.21,22,23
