Francis Moore

Francis Moore (29 January 1657 – 1715) was a British physician and astrologer who wrote and published Old Moore's Almanack.

He was born into poverty in Bridgnorth. Moore was self-educated, learning to read by himself, and became a physician and astrologer. He served at the court of Charles II of England.

The almanac that bears his name was first published in 1697, originally giving weather and astrological predications, and is still published annually.
