Iu the latter end of Queen Elizabeth, and beginning of King James, he was several times elected a Burgess, to sit in Parliament, in which he was a frequent speaker; afterwards he was Counsellor, and Under Steward for several years to the University of Oxford; the members of which conferred upon him the degree of Master of Arts, in 1012. Two years alter, he was made Serjeant-at-law, and in 1016, March 17, received the honor of Knighthood at Theobalds, from his Majesty, King James I. After his death some of his Works were published, which bear these titles,

Cases collected and reported from the original in French, that then (1663) remained iu the hands of Sir Jeffrey Palmer, Attorney General to King Charles* the '2nd, which is the same, as I take it, written fairly with the Author's hand in fol. that was lately in the library of Arthur, Earl of Anglesey.

Our Author, F. Moore, was a member of that parliament, as it seems, wherein the Statute concerning Charitable Uses was made, and was, as 'tis farther added, the penner thereof.
