Generation One

1. LORD ROBERT1 ST. JOHN was born about 1199 in Basing, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom, and died in March 1266. He married (JC-2) AGNES DE CANTELUPE of Basing, daughter of (JC-1) William DE CANTELUPE, who was born about 1202.
In the 42nd of HENRY III, has summons to be at Chester upon Monday next after
the feast of St. John the Baptist, well accoutred with horse and arms to oppose
the incursions of the Welsh.
Child:
+2i.JOHN2 DE ST. JOHN of Basing, b. in 1225; d. on 29 Sept. 1302; m. in June 1256 (ATP-8) ALICE FITZ PIERS of Basing, b. about 1234, daughter of (ATP-7) Reginald and Alice (_____) FITZ PIERS.


Generation Two

2. JOHN2 DE ST. JOHN (Robert1) of Basing, son of (1) Lord Robert1 and (JC-2) Agnes (de CANTELUPE), was born in 1225, and died on 29 Sept. 1302. He married in June 1256, (ATP-8) ALICE FITZ PIERS of Basing, daughter of (ATP-7) Reginald and Alice (_____) FITZ PIERS, who was born about 1234.
Lord St. John of Basing (from BPB "Courtenay")
From Burke's Peerage and Baronetage, p.157
"From the eldest son of [Robert de St. John], ... , JOHN, descended the Lords
St. John of Basing, represented by the Marquess of Winchester"
Since Robert was summoned to war in 1257, and Agnes St. John was
born in 1279, this seems to me to be the correct generation - that Agnes was
the dau. of this John St. John. It cannot be higher as there are no John St.
Johns for many generations.
