He was the son of Alexander Moigne of Sixhills and educated at the Inner Temple.
In the Lincolnshire Rising of 1536 he was captured and forced to become a leader of the rebels. After the collapse of the uprising, forerunner of the Pilgrimage of Grace and Bigod's Rebellion, Moigne was arrested and taken to London. He was then returned to Lincoln, tried for treason on 6 March 1537, sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered and executed the following day. His lands were attainted (confiscated) but recovered by his younger brothers in 1544. He had married Bridget, the daughter of Sir William Hansard of South Kelsey and left two daughters. His widow married Vincent Grantham.
