    Notes 
    • St John, Sir Anthony Sir Anthony St John
      Third son of Oliver St John, third baron St John of Bletso (c. 1545-1618), and his wife Dorothy (died 1605), daughter and heir of John Read of Boddington, Gloucestershire, and so younger brother of Oliver St John, fourth Baron St John of Bletso and first earl of Bolingbroke (c. 1584-1646) and uncle of Oliver St John, fifth baron St John of Bletso (baptised 1603, died 1642).
      He was knighted at Bletsoe, Bedfordshire, 1608.
      His daughter Dorothy married Sir John Booth (c. 1610-1678) of Woodford, Cheshire, knight, whose sister Susannah married Sir William Brereton in 1624.
      Captain in the earl of Essex’s own regiment of foot in the earl of Essex’s Army by Sept. 1642, and still captain in that regiment in Aug. 1644, evidently so continuing until the its reduction early in 1645. When the House of Lords recommended payment to St John to the Commons, they cited his service until recently laying down his commission and Essex’s support for his claim. The Commons on 2 May 1645 noted that ‘he hath been employed in the Parliament's Army ever since the Beginning of the War; and hath been forward and faithful, and wounded in this Service; and hath many Arrears for Pay due to him; and had been especially recommended to the Lords by the Lord General, upon the laying down his Commission; that he may be supplied with Monies, whereby he may be able to subsist’ (JHC, 4.128-9).
      On 29 June 1646 the Lords again pressed St John’s case: ‘the Lords, considering the Relation that Sir Anthony St. Johns had to the Earl of Bolingbrooke lately deceased, whose great Loss is much lamented by this House; in respect of whose Memory, and in regard of the great Hazard of Life that the said Sir Anthony St. Johns hath undergone by his faithful and valiant Carriage in the Services of the Parliament, do recommend his Condition unto the House of Commons, and desire that he may have the Payment of his Arrears, for Want of which he is likely to endure great Misery (JHL, 8.401). The Commons decided to do nothing, but passed on the matter to the auditing and decision of the committee of accounts. The matter was evidently unresolved on 25 May 1647, when the Lords passed on a petition of St John’s to the Commons.
