Castle, Dr John (d. 1664). Admitted to Gray's Inn 1616, and Clerk of the Privy Seal from at least 1643, when he compounded for delinquency [ paid a fine to recover his estate for ], having joined the court at Oxford. He is possibly the John Castle who was awarded a doctorate in medicine at Oxford in 1644. In 1663 he lived in Great Sanctuary, Westminster. (L&M Companion)
