The Mores were noted
recusants into the 17th century. Mass, attended
by family members and servants, was said regularly in their manor house in 1581; in the same
year Phillippe Pollard of Lower Haddon confessed to having sheltered the Jesuit Edmund
Campion in her house there, and in 1587 William More's goods were temporarily siezed after
he was accused of harbouring seminary priests. (fn. 27)
His daughter Ann Vaughan and son-in-law
Thomas Tempest were fined also. (fn. 28) Later lords,
though recusant, were non-resident, (fn. 29) and no
further nonconformity is recorded.
