Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
According to the Companion, Sir John Bernard (1630-1679) was a prosperous lawyer; bought the Manor of Brampton in 1653; connected by marriage to the families of Oliver St. John and Cromwell; sat for the borough in the three Protectorate parliaments. In 1660 he was thus a rival to the Mountagu interest in Huntingdon politics. We shall hear more of him later.
John's brother, William, appears to have been London resident; a member of the Grocer's Company; died c. 1667
