After father’s untimely death John was brought up by uncle (and guardian) Mr FitzHugh (probably Thomas) at Plas Power Castle, Denbighshire. Went as cadet to India, and subsequently worked in India House.

Mrs Clist describes John as wild and profligate; married without consulting his guardians at an early age, and died at 30 years of age, leaving a widow and two little girls.
