      The family of St John of Lambeth, by H C Evans
      .....A lady described as 'Mrs St John, wife of Mr Oliver St John,' who was buried at St Mary the Virgin, Marlborough, 3 April 1608. 17 She may well have been the Jane Nicholas whom Oliver St John, esquire, married at St Dunstan's in the West, London, 14 February 1607. In that case Jane Nicholas may have been his cousin Jane St John, widow of Robert Nicholas, of Manningford, Wilts, who died in 1602, and by whom she had
      a daughter Catherine Nicholas, wife of Sir Thomas Brodrick, of Wandsworth, Surrey

      Text: St. John als. Nicholas, Jane, Marlborough, Wilts. To Oliver St. J., h. (by decree) 1609 , p. 165.

      Three other holdings in Roundway are of some interest. In his charter of 1149 returning the sequestered lands to the Bishop of Salisbury, Henry, Duke of Normandy (later Henry II), excepted, among other things, 2 hides held by Gregory. (fn. 149) There is no further record of this property as Crown land: it may have been merged with the Devizes holdings, forming perhaps part of New Park or it may have been returned to the bishop. Within Roundway was a property of De Vaux College. (fn. 150) This holding is very probably the messuage and virgate acquired by Bishop Giles from Robert de Littlecote in 1262. (fn. 151) In 1543 the college properties were granted by the Crown to Michael Lyster, kt. (fn. 152) and passed into the Nicholas family in 1548. (fn. 153) The tenant at that time was Robert Sompnour: the Valor records his rent as 10s. per annum. (fn. 154) Bradenstoke priory had a small holding of land in Roundway known as Holdcroft under Cotte-grove. (fn. 155)
