John Saint John, son and heir by his father's first marriage. He married Sibyl (or Margaret) Ferch Morgan AP Jenkin AP Philip, daughter of Morgan ap Jenkin ap Philip, Esq., by his 2nd wife, Margred, daughter of Dafydd Matthew, Knt. They had three sons, John, Oliver, and Alexander, and five daughters, Elizabeth (wife of Thomas Rotheram), Alice (wife of Henry Parker) Margaret, Sibyl (wife of Robert Kirkham), and Katherine (wife of Griffith ap Rhys (or Ryce), and Peter Edgecombe). Sir John Saint John left a will dated 22 March 1524/5, proved 23 May 1525.

StJohn-33 and St John-414 appear to represent the same person because: LNAB based on the standards is St John, no punctuation w/a space.

I corrected the dates & details in St John-414. I did nothing with StJohn-33 so the details will deviate a bit - there is incorrect information in StJohn33. Update - just noticed StJohn-33 has the wrong parents - St John-414 parents should be used. Thanks!
