Rev. Moore continued as rector at Appleby until his nephew sold Appleby Hall. Aubrey recounts, "The patronage of the living of Appleby was sold with the Appleby estate by my cousin Charlie after the death of Uncle George. Father was getting a bit tired by then and things would not be the same so he retired in 1922 and went to live at Hill House in Ashby." He died there two years later. His widow Mabel returned to Appleby Magna, where she died two years after her husband, both buried in the church to which they devoted more than forty years of their lives.
