Winston Churchill
Birth: c. 1620
Death: Mar. 26, 1688

Soldier and Statesman. Born the son of John Churchill and Sarah Winston in Dorset, England. He attended at St. John's College at Oxford but his education was apparently interrupted by the Civil War. A Royalist, he served as a Captain in the King's Horse. In 1643 he married Elizabeth Drake. The couple had twelve children, of whom five survived childhood, including John, who would become the 1st Duke of Marlborough and from whom was descended a 20th century Prime Minister and namesake. Churchill wrote ‘Divi Britannici: Being a remark upon the lives of all the kings of this isle' which was published in 1660. After the Restoration, he sat as Member of Parliament for Weymouth and Melcombe Regis from 1661 to 1679 and for Lyme Regis from 1685 to 1688. He held the office of Commissioner of the Court of Claims and Explanations Ireland between 1662 and 1668. He was invested as a Knight in 1664. He held the office of Junior Clerk Comptroller to the Board of Green Cloth between 1664 and 1679, and was invested as a Fellow of the Royal Society. He died at age 67 and was interred at Saint Martin-in-the-Fields Churchyard, London. (bio by: Iola)
