John Moyle is noticed as the father of Margaret Moyle, that married Thomas Atwode, MP for Canterbury.
John Moyle has represented Bodmin (Cornwall) in Parliament and he, or his son Thomas, had procured Eastwell in Kent at the death of Sir Christopher Hales.
In the discussion on the property of Eastwell, Kent,  it is noted that John is descended from a family of this name at Bodmin, in Cornwall.
He married, at least twice. The name of his second wife was Anne Darcy, daughter of Sir Robert Darcy of Tolleshunt D’Arcy, in Essex. His children were:
Margaret Moyle, that marries Thomas Atwode.
Walter Moyle, of Buckwell.
Sir Thomas Moyle, later of Eastwell, born to his second wife, speaker of the house of commons anno 34 king Henry VIII. (1542) and chancellor of the court of augmentation.
According to History of Parliament Online he died in 1500, suggesting that it was his son, Thomas, that purchased Eastwell, in Kent.
Douglas Richardson gives a death date of 21 November 1495, with his will proved in November 1496. The History of Parliament Online website has no source for the 1500 death date, and Richardson is likely to be right.

I have amended the death date to agree with the information given by Douglas Richardson, and said something about this in the research note, to which I have transferred one paragraph in the previous version of the bio.
