Moyer memorial

The Moyer family had one of the largest houses in the parish (on the south side of what is now Hainault Road, near the junction with Leyton High Road), rated as having 69 windows in 1785.  The first Moyer known to live in Leyton, Captain Lawrence, had been a fiery Puritan.  His descendants are known only for paying their share of local rates and charitable collections.  To the right is A photo of their family tomb.
