MacMoyer (Moyer, Weyer), John (‘Fr Francis’ ‘Maor na Canoine’) (c.1650–1709?), dissolute Franciscan friar and perjured witness against Archbishop Oliver Plunkett (qv), was a native of Co. Armagh, where the MacMoyer family had for generations held the eight townlands of church land in Ballymoyer under the primate by virtue of their custodianship of the Book of Armagh, one of the greatest relics of the Patrician church.
