Notes for Lorenzo MOORE

When the Revd. Lorenzo MOORE retired from the army he studied at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, and became a Church of England priest. He and his family came to Australia where he seems to have relieved at various churches, 12 months at St Paul's, Geelong; 12 months at Pentridge Prison, as a priest, not a prisoner. Twelve months seems to be the time the regular priest went home to the UK for a break and Lorenzo filled in while they were away. Quite a few others.

Eventually they moved to New Zealand and, as far as I can see, never left. I have pages and pages, all about him, he must have been quite a character, but nothing about Elizabeth except I have seen mention of a long and happy marriage. [387]
