In about 1770, Moore established a Nautical Academy in Brentford, Middlesex, and in 1772 he published The New Practical Navigator and Daily Assistant. Later he established himself at 127 Minories, near Tower Hill, where he taught navigation and carried on his business of selling maps and nautical instruments.
