Biography St. Aubyn probably owed both his baronetcy and his politics to the influence of the courtier, Sir Nicholas Slanning, who married his wife’s younger sister. He was returned for Mitchell, five miles from Trekenning, at both elections of 1679. Classed as ‘doubtful’ by Shaftesbury, he voted against the first exclusion bill, and was not appointed to any committees. He was buried at Crowan on 24 June 1687.
