From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Porter, Francis, a Franciscan friar, was born in the County of Meath in the 17th century. He was Professor and Lecturer, and ultimately President, in the Irish College of St. Isidore's at Rome, where he died 7th April 1702. Harris's Ware gives a list of his Latin works, the principal of which are: Securis Evangelica ad Haeresis Radices Posita (Rome, 1674), Compendium Annalium Ecclesiasticorum Regni Hiberniae (Rome, 1690), and Systema Decretorum Dogmaticorum (Avignon, 1693).

Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
