John Churchill held the office of Deputy Registrar of Chancery before 1639.2 He lived at Minterne, Dorset, England.3 He was admitted to Middle Temple.
Churchill constructed for himself an impressive pedigree, but he was in fact the grandson of a Dorset copyholder. His father John Churchill studied law at the Middle Temple, and became deputy registrar of Chancery, in which capacity he acted as jackal, and later Judas, to Bacon.
During the Civil War John, who had resigned his Chancery post to his cousin (Sir) John Churchill, was active as commissioner of array, compounding for £440 in 1646 on property valued at £245 p.a. .4
