Sir John 
Hotham
1585 - 1645


Sir John 
Hotham
, Of Scorborough, Yorks. and of Fryling Hall, Yorks.He had 3 further wives. Sir John Hotham (1589-1645) and his son, also John Hotham (1610-1645). Sir John Hotham was the son of John Hotham, High Sheriff of Yorkshire. He served in the Thirty Years War and sat as MP for Beverley during the reign of Charles I. He was knighted in 1617 and became the 1st baronet on 14 January 1622. On 11 January 1642 Charles I appointed the Earl of Newcastle as Governor of Hull and Parliament appointed Sir John Hotham who believed he held the town in the 'king's authority signified by the Lords and Commons in Parliament'. This became a problem when the King demanded entry to Hull on 23 April 1642. Sir John Hotham refused him entry on the grounds that it would betray his commission to keep the town secure. He was declared a traitor. http://www.hull.ac.uk/oldlib/archives/landed/hotham.html Hull University, Brynmor Jones Library Papers of the Hotham Family of Scorborough and South Dalton Catalogue Ref. DDHO; DDHO(2); DDHO(3) Creator(s): Hotham family of Scorborough and South Dalton, East Riding of Yorkshire [Access Conditions] Open [from Administrative History] Sir John Hotham was the son of John Hotham, High Sheriff of Yorkshire, and his third wife, Jane Legard (d.1623). He came into the estates on his father's death in 1605 and pursued a successful military and parliamentary career, serving under Count Mansfield in the Thirty Years War and sitting as MP for Beverley in the five parliaments of the reign of Charles I. He was knighted in 1617 and became the 1st baronet on 14 January 1622. Sir John Hotham greatly increased the family's fortunes, possibly through being unfortunate enough to lose four wives, and therefore going through five marriage settlements, but also perhaps through successful speculation in the East India Company. The core of the family estates on the eve of the English Civil Wars lay between Beverley and Driffield, though the family also owned property in the North Riding (Foster, Pedigrees, iii; English, 'Sir John Hotham', p.218; Roebuck, Yorkshire baronets, pp.63-4).
