In Reply to: Re: NEW The St. John Genealogy Website www.stjohngenealogy.com by Jerome Lafayette Saint John of 1821

I was providing the "Michael" link because of the information Robert stated:

"In Purley church, Berks , there was a monumental inscription to JANE EWARBY which mentioned MICHAEL ST. JOHN and RICHARD ST. JOHN, sons of NICHOLAS ST. JOHN, and the monumental inscription was erected by Sir JOHN ST. JOHN Bt. The article suggests that RICHARD might have been given the use of the family manor of Purley, but questions what happened to MICHAEL, whose name does not appear on the earlier monumental inscription."


full context:

"There has been a great deal of work done on the ST. JOHN family - as you say J. H. Round's article early in this century seems to have sparked off interest in tracing the ancestry of OLIVER ST. JOHN and his collaterals. Recently "The Genealogist's Magazine" contained an article on the pedigree of OLIVER, by FRANK T. SMALLWOOD (Vol 16 no 3 pp 93-6, Sept 1969), and the Friends of Lydiard Tregoze published a similar article on the family and its collaterals in its 5 Reports, especially Report 5 (1972), by CHRISTOPHER HUSSEY. Mr. SMALLWOOD is the prime mover in this Society. Our local researcher contacted Mr. SMALLWOOD but he stated that he had never found a MATTHEW or MATTHIAS ST. JOHN among the collaterals he had succeeded in locating. In the 1970 Report no 3 says that a monumental inscription at Lydiard Tregoze recorded that NICHOLAS ST. JOHN and his wife ELIZABETH BLOUNT had 3 sons and 5 daughters, namely JOHN ST. JOHN, OLIVER ST. JOHN, RICHARD ST. JOHN, ELIZABETH ST. JOHN, CATHERINE ST. JOHN, ELEANOR ST. JOHN, DOROTHEA ST. JOHN, and JANE ST. JOHN. JOHN married the dau. of Sir WALTER HUNGERFORD, Knt. and OLIVER and RICHARD were still unmarried in 1592. In Purley church, Berks , there was a monumental inscription to JANE EWARBY which mentioned MICHAEL ST. JOHN and RICHARD ST. JOHN, sons of NICHOLAS ST. JOHN, and the monumental inscription was erected by Sir JOHN ST. JOHN Bt. The article suggests that RICHARD might have been given the use of the family manor of Purley, but questions what happened to MICHAEL, whose name does not appear on the earlier monumental inscription."
