  • Name John Mordaunt 
    • Mordaunt v. Mordaunt (1723) describes Lestrange Mordaunt of Rochester, who has a wife Sarah, as the youngest son of Sir John Mordaunt of Clerkenwell and formerly Islington.
      However, John Mordaunt's will (1723) mentions only his wife Elizabeth (Floyd) and son John Mordaunt esq.
      It is possible that Lestrange was an illegitimate son - there is evidence of at least one illegitimate child being fathered by the same John Hougham who is the subject of the legal action. However the use of the names Lestrange and Mordaunt does suggest some degree of legitimacy or recognition. [1, 2]
    • In The Peerage web site a John Mordaunt, son of Sir John Mordaunt, 5th Baronet Mordaunt, died in 1723. I have consulted with The Peerage webmaster and it is likely that the two Johns who died in 1723 are the same person.
      I have decided to run with that connection although it is not certain. This has enabled me to trace the Mordaunt pedigree a long way back to Osbert.
      What is clear is that the "Sir" John you are looking at is not a Mordaunt baronet. If he is entitled to use "Sir" it is not from the Mordaunt title.

    • If this date of birth is correct it may explain why he claimed the title "Sir", being the eldest son. However this date of birth needs verification.
