More was a London lawyer whose return for Aylesbury probably resulted from some connexion with the lord of the manor, Sir John Pakington. Perhaps this was professional, or perhaps More was related to the Sir Jasper More who married (as her second husband) Sir John Pakington’s sister Katherine. By 1605 More himself is described as ‘of Aylesbury’. He died in or shortly before June 1635, when the benchers of the Middle Temple arranged for the disposal of goods left in his chamber at his death, and assigned the chamber to a new occupant.
