Oliver St. JOHN (Chief Justice of England)

Born: 25 Jun 1598, Longthorpe, Nhant., England

Christened: 25 Jun 1598 Wootton, Bassett, Wilts, England

Died: 31 Dec 1673

Notes:  statesman and judge. Educated at Queens' College, Cambridge, and was called to the bar in 1626. He appears to have got into trouble with the court in connection with a seditious publication, and to have associated himself with the future popular leaders John Pym and Lord Saye. In 1638 he defended John Hampden on his refusal to pay Ship Money, on which occasion he made a notable speech. In the same year he married, as his second wife, Elizabeth Cromwell, a cousin of Oliver Cromwell, to whom his first wife also had been distantly related. The marriage led to an intimate friendship with Cromwell.

St John was member for Totnes in both the Short and the Long Parliament, where he acted in close alliance with Hampden and Pym, especially in opposition to the impost of Ship Money. In 1641, with a view of securing his support, the king appointed St John solicitor-general. This did not prevent him taking an active role in the impeachment of Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Strafford, and in preparing the bills brought forward by the popular party in the House of Commons; as a result, he was dismissed from office in 1643. On the outbreak of the Civil War, he became recognized as one of the parliamentary leaders. In the quarrel between the parliament and the army in 1647 he sided with the latter, and throughout this period he enjoyed Cromwell's confidence.

In 1648 St John was appointed chief justice of the common pleas; and from then on he devoted himself to his judicial duties. He refused to act as one of the commissioners for the trial of King Charles I, and had no hand in Pride's Purge, nor in the constitution of the Commonwealth. In 1651 he went to The Hague as one of the envoys to negotiate a union between England and the Dutch Republic, a mission in which he entirely failed, leading to the First Anglo-Dutch War; but in the same year he successfully conducted a similar negotiation with Scotland. After the Restoration he published an account of his past conduct (The Case of Oliver St John, 1660), and this apologia enabled him to escape any worse retribution than exclusion from public office. He retired to his country house in Northamptonshire till 1662, when he went to live abroad.

Christened: Windsor, Fairfield, Connecticut

Died: 19 Oct 1669, Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut

Buried: Jan 1669/70, Windsor, Fairfield, Connecticut

Notes: does not seem likely that Matthias St. John was connected with the families of the nobility or gentry. Perhaps he was of Huguenot origin. A great many of these French protestants fled to England and engaged in various trades to support themselves. "St. John" is a very common parish name in France, and would probably sound like Sension. Perhaps he was descended from servants of one of the above gentry families, and his ancestors took the name of their masters. This is what happened with many freed slaves in the South, and the same process in England led to servitors having noble surnames.
