About Sir Nicholas Stoughton, Baronet

He was 12th Lord of Stoughton and Stoke. He inherited the estates at the age of 14 on the death of his infant cousin in 1649. His father had died when he was 10 or 11, and his sister Rose had been sent to America. In 1659 Nicholas was admitted as a Bacc. Jur. (Bachelor of Law) at Oxford, "ad incipiendum in faculte utriusque juristam civilis quam canonici, " although the faculty of Canon Law had disappeared at the time of the Reformation. [VCH Oxford 3:31.] He was created a Baronet on 29 January 1660/61. He wrote a manuscript history of the Stoughton family and an autobiography [British Museum MSS Add No. 6174], with the last entry in 1672.
