Seymour St. John, 94, Leader of Choate School for 26 Years, Dies

By NADINE BROZAN
Published: April 20, 2006
The Rev. Seymour St. John, who as headmaster of the Choate School steered it through turbulent changes in the 1960's and early 70's, including its merger with Rosemary Hall in 1971, died on Monday at his home on Jupiter Island, Fla. He was 94.

His wife, Marie, said he died in his sleep.

Born on the Choate campus in Wallingford, Conn., he seemed to have the school in his genes; his father, George St. John, was headmaster from 1908 to 1947.

In 1947, after a two-year search, he was chosen to succeed his father, and he served as headmaster for 26 years. Though some outsiders derided "the St. John dynasty," there was widespread agreement in the Choate community that Seymour St. John was the best-qualified candidate.

"The St. John family occupied 68 of the 110 years of the school's history, and I know of no other school with that length of service by a single family," Edward Shanahan, the current headmaster, said. "Seymour was an intellectual, an athlete and well respected by the faculty."

His tenure coincided with a time of racial, sexual and economic diversification for boys' boarding schools like Choate, until then a bastion of privilege and exclusivity.

But as co-education came to prep schools and Ivy League colleges, Mr. St. John became a strong supporter of a merger with Rosemary Hall, a girls' school that had been founded in Wallingford by a member of the Choate family and had been moved to Greenwich, Conn.

"The merger demanded an enormous expenditure of resources by Choate because the building of a new campus was to occur within the footprints of its property," Dr. Shanahan said. "Seymour was central to the decision to expand those resources."

At first the schools had an arrangement in which each maintained its own board, faculty and administration, but by 1978, they became one fully coeducational institution.

After stepping down, Mr. St. John divided his time between Weekapaug, R.I., and Jupiter Island, becoming assistant to the chaplain at Christ Memorial Chapel on Jupiter Island and commodore of the Hobe Sound Yacht Club.

Seymour St. John was born on Feb. 28, 1912. He graduated from Choate in 1931 and from Yale as Phi Beta Kappa in 1935. (An uncle, Charles Seymour, became president of Yale two years later.)

He returned to Choate to teach French and German and coach athletics, leaving to enter the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Va., where he was ordained in 1942. During World War II, he served in Europe as a lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserve.

Mr. St. John's first wife, the former Margaret Spencer, to whom he was married for 50 years, died in 1986. In addition to his second wife, Marie, known as Mazie, whom he married in 1989, he is survived by a son, Gordon W., of Lavonia, Mich.; a daughter, Margaret, of Tucson; five grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; a stepson, Frederick Race of Deerfield Beach, Fla.; two stepdaughters, Margaret Race of Norfolk, Conn., and Marie Race Jr. of Burlington, Vt.; and seven step-grandchildren. Another stepdaughter, Laura Race, died in 1998.

ST. JOHN, SAMUEL (29 Mar. 1813-9 Sept. 1876), science professor, proponent of natural history, and newspaper publisher during his short time in the Cleveland area in the mid-1800s, was born in New Canaan, Conn., son of Samuel and Hannah Benedict Richards St. John. He graduated as valedictorian from Yale in 1834, and in 1839 became professor of chemistry, geology, and mineralogy at Western Reserve College in Hudson, teaching biology as well. When the college established its Medical Dept. in Cleveland in 1843, St. John was appointed to oversee the awarding of degrees by the medical faculty, becoming professor of chemistry, natural history, and medical jurisprudence at the Medical College. St. John was an original curator and secretary of the CLEVELAND ACADEMY OF NATURAL SCIENCES when it was organized in 1845, and also was secretary of the publication committee for the 1853 meeting in Cleveland of the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science. In 1851 he and Prof. Jehu Brainard published a geology text, Elements of Geology. St. John tried his hand at newspaper editing, joining Dr. JARED P. KIRTLAND and O. H. Knapp in 1850 as coeditor of the weekly Family Visitor, which was published until around 1858. In 1852, St. John resigned from Western Reserve College in a dispute with the administration over back salary owed him. He stayed in Cleveland, reportedly becoming principal of the CLEVELAND FEMALE SEMINARY in 1854. In 1856 he accepted a chair in chemistry at the College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York.

St. John married Amelia Parkinson Curtis ca. 1840. They had 3 children: Eliza, Samuel Benedict, and George. He died in New Canaan, Conn.

239 I. THOMAS ST. JOHN, I10625 Raoul, Rodulf, Esperleng died after 1121 but by 1140. He took part in the operations against Tinchebrai in 1106. "…Th. de Sancto Johanne…" witnessed the charter dated 1108 under which Henry I King of England confirmed the foundation of Holy Trinity, London. The Chronicle of Abingdon records that King Henry I appointed "Thoma de Sancto Johanne ac Ricardo de Monte" as Sheriffs of Oxfordshire, "Oxenefordscire vicecomitibus," at Oxford in 1111. He also, in 1112, gave some land to Gloucester abbey: “Thomas de St. John gave to the Monks of St. Peters in Gloucester, his Lands called Rugge, lying in Standisch”. At Lent 1116, “Notification to (Robert Bloet) bishop of Lincoln [1093-1123], Thomas de St. John, and the lieges [vassal] of Oxfordshire, of the confirmation to the church of Abingdon of land at Fencott, which Adelina [Grandmesnil] de Ivry [wife of Roger [Radulfum] de Ivry died after May 1110-1; Chron. Of Abingdon, ii. 72-3] has given. It is attested by Nigel de Oilli, Thomas de St. John, Hugh de Envremou, Geoffrey Fitz-Pain, Geoffrey de Magnevill, Roger de Oillei, Robert de Dunstanvill and Ralph de Angervill; at Woodstock, in Lent.” From about 1117 to 1121, Thomas, Lord of Saint-Jean, rebuilt or upgraded the original castle at St. John situated at the edge of the cliff and had trouble with the priest who accused him of destroying St. John’s forests. Thomas rebelled against the abbot of Mont, destroyed his fortress and gave the village its new name; originally called “Saint John at the end of the sea” it then became Saint-Jean-le-Thomas. By 1140 he was deceased. If it wasn’t through direct descent, Thomas probably held what is now Stanton-St. John in Oxfordshire after it was forfeited in 1100 by Ilbert de Lacy’s heir; regardless, by 1149 it was clearly in the possession of the St. John family. Stanton St. John is a village and civil parish in Oxfordshire about 4.5 miles (7 km) northeast of the centre of Oxford. The village is 330 feet (100 m) above sea level on the eastern brow of a group of hills northeast of Oxford, in a slight saddle between two of the hills. In 1140, his brother, John, had secured his lands in England by payment of the large sum of 160 marcs. George Cockayne in The Complete Peerage XI p. 340 states, “'He was clearly one of the men of the Côtentin and Avranchin to whom Henry I after his accession granted land in England.” Orderic Vitalis records that "Thomam de Sancto Johanne" ineffectively blockaded Tinchebrai on behalf of Henry I King of England in 1106. He and his family were studied by Gerville. "…Th. de Sancto Johanne…" witnessed the charter dated 1108 under which Henry I King of England confirmed the foundation of Holy Trinity, London. The Chronicle of Abingdon records that King Henry I appointed "Thoma de Sancto Johanne ac Ricardo de Monte" as "Oxenefordscire vicecomitibus" at Oxford in 1111. Matthew of Paris quotes a charter dated 1116 of King Henry I which records his grant of Biscot, Bedfordshire to the abbey of St Albans, witnessed by "…Adam de Port, Thomas de Sancto Johanne, Willelmus frater eius, Hugo de Gornaio". A charter dated to [1121] records that "Thomas de Sancto Johanne" had constructed his castle at Saint-Jean with wood taken from land of the abbey of Saint-Michel and records his donation in settlement of their claim, signed by "Thoma, Johanne fratre eius et Rogerio…". A charter dated to [1123/29] records a donation by King Henry I to Mont-Saint-Michel, witnessed by "…Thoma de Sancto Johanne".  St. John, Thomas (I10625)
 
240 II. AGNES ST. JOHN, (ID# I104783384: John5, John4, Oliver1, Alexander1, John3, Roger2, John2, Roger1, John1, Raoul, Rodulf, Esperleng) (of Weobley) was probably born about 1395. She is recorded ?Agnes Rodney, daughter of Sir John St John, son of Elizabeth de la Bere, was "of Wybley Castle"? in her will. She married John Rodney of Rodney Stoke, Somerset, born in or before 1387 (aged 26 or more in the IPM of his father Sir Walter in 1413), died 7 May 1420 (per IPM). She and her husband were the guardians of Thomas de la Bere, her cousin, during his minority until his death. Agnes St. John died between 5 Oct 1420 and Feb 1421. In documentation she is listed as the daughter of Sir John St John, and sister of Oliver St John of Penmark. The wills of both John Rodney, dated Thursday the Feast of St Mary Magdalene 1417, and Agnes Rodney, dated 5 Oct 1420, were proved in Feb 1421 - they are entered consecutively (TNA PCC ref PROB 112B). John Rodney's three IPMs name his son and heir as Walter Rodney aged 5 and no more. John's will mentions his wife Agnes, son Walter and 250 marks owed him by John St John which was to go to his unborn child. Agnes of Wybley (Weobley) Castle desired that she be buried at Lanredian (Llanrhidian - a mile down the road from Weobley castle) near her ancestor. It refers to her father, Lord Sir John St John Knight, her brother Oliver St John, Knight, and her sons Walter, John and Robert. The reference to Weobley Castle links her to her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth de la Bere. The The National Archive catalogue ref E118/1/10; 9 Hen V May 28 (28 May 1422) also contains the following: Charter of confirmation by Parschal Gilot, Abbot of the monastery of St Mary Graces, London, and the convent there, to John Seyat John and Oliver Seyat John, kts, keepers of all land in Lovington, Som, in their hands by reason of the minority of Walter, son and heir of John Rodenay, kt, etc. The wardship of Walter Rodeney was held by Walter, Lord Hungerford, who married him to his daughter Margaret Hungerford. St. John, Agnes (I104783384)
 
241 II. WILLIAM ST. JOHN, I10992 Raoul, Rodulf, Esperleng died after 1116 and probably before 1140. Matthew of Paris quotes a charter dated 1116 of King Henry I which records his grant of Biscot, Bedfordshire to the abbey of St Albans, witnessed by Adam de Port [probably not the Adam de Port of Mapleduram that married Mabel d’Orval as this event occurred well before his birth.], Thomas St. John, William his brother, Hugh de Gornaio, "…Adam de Port, Thomas de Sancto Johanne, Willelmus frater eius, Hugo de Gornaio" (MP Vol. VI, 22, p. 36.) There is a statement made by Thomas St. John that he had a nephew, Ralf de Port. It is possible these St. John brothers and Adam de Port were related somehow, possibly through an unnamed sister. St. John, William (I10992)

249 Investor in Tontine:
Sept 6

Mr. Urban,

I send you the following list, which has been in my possession these ten years, imagining it will be acceptable to you, and some of the readers of your useful and comprehensive Miscellany. It contains the names of the few fortunate survivors of the whole number of subscribers to a Tontinc, or Scheme for raising money by way of Annuities upon Lives increasing by survivorship, which was set on foot about the year 1694*[1693], or between that time and the death of King William III. together with some brief memoirs of those of them that I had any knowledge of. I understood that the ultimate condition of the subscription was, that the annual revenue, as it increased by the deaths of the nominees, should be divided in equal proportion among the Survivors, till it aounted to 1000L. each, which was to be paid to the last seven, and as they dropt, their dividends were not to be given to their successors; but to fall in to the public: but I found that, by some means or other, with which I am not acquainted, that 1000L amounted to 1081L which was the annual income of those seven fortunate survivors of 100L each orginal subscribed. Yours, E.



A list of the surviving Nominees on Survivorship, February 1773

The Right Hon. James Tyrawley and Killmaine, two shares (only son and heir of Charles Lord Tyrawley, whom he succeeded 8th June 1724, having been created Baron of Killmaine 8th January 1721-2: He died in July 1773, being then a Privy Counsellor both in England and Ireland, Field Marshal of his Majesty's forces (by commission dated 10th June 1763, the last person who enjoyed that high rank in this kingdom) Governor of Portsmouth, and Colonel of the Coldstream Regimont of Foot Guards: leaving no legitimate issue, his titles became extinct.

There is a vault dug on purpose for her and very strongly bricked and probably her worthy relation Mrs. St. John will set up some monument.

Philadelphia Squibb.

On 1st Feb. 1774, there were only 13 survivors, and the income was then above 640L per ann. each.

In Oct 1775, I was told that the income had some time been 1000L.

250 It appears he abandoned or divorced this woman between 1884-1887 but it's not clear.

Find-a-grave states this:
Harry C. St. John, son of John Pierce St. John and his first wife Mary Jane Brewster. Harry married Ada Elizabeth Stout May 12, 1875. They had four children. The first child, Helen died very young. Harry was a lawyer and served one term in the Oklahoma Territorial Legislature in 1890. His first wife Ada divorced him because of alcoholism and he later married Mary E. Felton on January 8, 1887. On April 3, 1895 while living in Oklahoma, Harry confronted his wife with a letter from another man and in a fit of anger shot and killed her. While awaiting either sentencing or trial, Harry died of the flu in Oklahoma City on October 10, 1896. His body was sent home to Olney by train, his father meeting the train enroute. He was buried in Haven Hill Cemetery in Olney, the home of his birth.
