Disputed Lineages

Two alternative ancestries are given:

The Bulkeley Genealogy presents Oliver as the son of Henry St John and Jane Neale.

Foster's Royal Lineage presents him as the son of Thomas St John, grandson of the 1st Baron St John. Foster states that "a different, but less probably, descent is given in Brydges' edition of Collins Peerage"

Given this statement from Foster and in the absence of any further evidence, the Foster version has been taken as the correct one.
