John Lanier was a musician, in England, like the others of his family.[1]

He was born in England about 1594, the son of John Lanier and Frances Galliardello.[2]

John married Elinor around 1630.[3]

They were affiliated with St. Giles Church, Cripplegate, London, and lived in that part of town. They had three children: Frances, Elizabeth and John.[2]

John Lanier died before August 28, 1650, in England. He left everything to Elinor.[4] John and Elinor were buried in the St. Giles churchyard. The bombings of World War II completely destroyed the graveyard and tombstones.[2]


  1. Ingersoll Page 6 says only "musician". Was he also a court musician like others of his family?
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Ingersoll Page 6
  3. Ingersoll Page 6, but the date is a guess based on the educated guess about Frances being born around 1632.
  4. Will-Lanier-636 John's will was probated 28 Aug 1650.
