This is a different Sir John Lenthall who was the controversial keeper of the Marshalsea and King’s Bench prisons in Southwark for many years. He died in 1669 and left a will. He was the elder brother of Speaker William Lenthall and therefore the uncle of the Sir John Lenthall MP mentioned in the previous annotations.
