From: the Collectanea Topographica, Harleian MS 1074:

  • But on the other hand: His will quoted in "Testamenta Vetusta" collected by Nicholas Harris Nicolas and published by Nihols and son, Parliament St, London in MDCCCXXVI:
    • "SIR JOHN ST JOHN "John St John, of the parish of Bletnesho, Knight, 22nd March 1524.
      • My body to be buried in the Chapel of St Edmund, in the North side of the Church of our Lady St Mary of Bletnesho aforesaid.
      • To Oliver, my son, all my lands in Sharnbrok, Milton, Risley, in Bedfordwhire;
      • to Alexander, my son, my lands abour Bedford.
      • And I constitute John St John, Sir William Gasken, Knt. and Oliver and Alexander St John, my sons, my executors; and my Lord Morley, my supervisor. Proved 23rd May 1525."
      • Notes in the book: Grandfather of Oliver first Baron St John of Bletso, he was made a Knight of the Bath 17 Henry VII. [Lord Morley] His son-in-law, having married his eldest daughter Alice. Note that other records don't show this gent having either an Oliver or an Alexander for sons... And this may be the wrong Lord Morley, the first of whom married the daughter of this man's father, so was his uncle, a suitable dignity for a Supervisor to a will.
