      John St John (1505-1576) of Lydiard Tregose inherited Purley Magna in 1512 although still a minor. Presumably the manor was administered by his mother Joan who re-married to Nicholas Saunder.
      He would have beome Lord at his majority in 1526. Very little is known of happenings during his lordship and he died in 1576 the manor passing to Nicholas St John, who had been named on a settlement of the manor by Joan together with his intended bride Elizabeth Blount of Mapledurham House.
      The latter couple came to live in Purley, at the old Manor House, often referred to as the Great Farm House adjacent to the church. Elizabeth & Nicholas had eight children: John, Oliver, Richard, Elizabeth, Catherine, Eleanor, Dorothy and Jane and one may suppose that most, if not all were born in Purley, or at least were brought up there. (ref 590)
      Nicholas St John of Purley, along with George Phetyplace of the Middle Temple was granted the manors of Shrevenham, Salop, Compton Beauchamp and Stamford in the Vale, Berks and other lands in 1566.
      Nicholas St John died in 1589 and left a will. He was succeded by his son John. Elizabeth, nee Blount had died in 1587 and both were buried at Lydiard Tregose in Wiltshire. (refs 589-148, 590)
