Iohannes films natu maximus in uxorem duxit filiam Gualteri Hungerford militis, Oliverus et Richardus vivunt adhuc caelibes, Elizabetha filia natu maxima nupsit St.George comitatus Cantabrigiensis, Catherina Webb, Helinora Cave, comitatus Northamptoniensis, Dorothea Egiocke Warwickensis, Iana vero Nicholas comitatus Wiltonensis. Ipse Nicholas St.John ex hac vita discessit octavo die Novembris anno domini 1589 Elizabetha vero ipsius coniux ex hac vita discessit undecimo die Augusti anno domini 1587 insigne relinquens trophaem posteris suis et famae purae et vitae integrae Iohannes St.John illorum filius hoc illis de se optime meritis et piis parentibus pietatis ergo monumentum posuit: anno domini 1592

      Nobis est Christus Tempora qui longae speras faelicia vitae
      et in vita et in morte lucum spes tua te fallit testis utrique sumus



      Here lie (good reader) buried in the hope of the blessed resurrection the bodies of Nicholas St.John, armigerA, and of his wife, Elizabeth: he was for the reigns of King Edward, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth of the number of the chosen retinueŽ (commonly called pensioners) and died while holding that rank with the sovereign . Elizabeth his wife was the daughter of Richard Blunt, Knight, and by her had three sons0 and five daughters: John, Oliver,Richard, Elizabeth, Catherine, Eleanor, Dorothea, and Jane. John his eldest son took to wife the daughter of Walter Hungerford, Knight. Oliver and Richard are still alive, unmarried. Elizabeth his eldest daughter married St.George of the County of Cambridge, Catherine [(married)] Webb, Eleanor [(married)] Cave of the County of Northampton, Dorothea [(married)] Egiocke of [(the County of] Warwick, Jane [(married)] Nicholas of the County of Wiltshire. Nicholas St.John himself departed this life on the eighth day of November, 1589, and Elizabeth his wife departed this life on the eleventh day of August in the year of our Lord 1587, leaving a noteworthy trophy to those who followed her of unsullied repute and wholesome life. John St.John their son set up this monument out of affection to those good parents who had served him so well. In the year of our Lord, 1592.

      In life and in death Christ is our riches. Thou who dost hope for the happy span of a long life, Thy hope deceives thee, we both bear witness
      (Rev. J.T. Wharton, Friends of Lydiard Report No. 3, 20th June 1970)


      Wiltshire Memorial Inscription Index:
      Month: Nov Year: 1589 Age: Forenames: Nicholas Surname: ST JOHN Place: Lydiard Tregoze County: Wiltshire Country: England Reference: 105650 Notes: husb of Elizabeth

      In 1592 Walter?s father John had erected a monument at Lydiard Tregoze to his own father, Nicholas St John, who died in 1589, and his mother, Elizabeth Blunt, who died in 1587. He says that his father was prominent in the courts of Edward, Mary and Elizabeth; that he married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Richard Blunt; and that they had three sons, John, Oliver, and Richard, the latter two unmarried, and five daughters, who married well.
      In 1630 Walter?s brother John St John inherited the estates in Battersea of his intrepid uncle Oliver, Lord Grandison. At his decease (1633) he was succeeded by his grandson John, who dying childless before he came of age, his uncle Walter obtained the title and the estates. He resided at Battersea, where he died in 1708, leaving an only son Henry his rank and property. The inscriptions and biographies can be found in John Britton's The Beauties of England And Wales : Wiltshire, pp. 645-59: Verner & Hood, 1814 (first publ. 1801).
