    Fact 1 1424 
    Sir Oliver Saint John was presumably an adult or near adulthood in 1424, when he and his father, John Saint John, Knt., witnessed a confirmation charter of Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick


    [Reference: Clark, Cartæ et Alia Munimenta de Glamorgancia 2 (1890): 104-116].

    Note: This may have been Oliver St. John, of Penmark Place (Odny's Fee) and NOT Oliver de Port-St. John of Fonmon Castle, Penmark Castle, and Barry Castle.

    It is possible the first married another Beauchamp Heiress, Eleanor Beauchamp while this one married Margaret Beauchamp.
