2nd son, but heir as his elder brother John dsp in 1570.
Acquired Broadlands House through his marriage.
Five years after Edward St Barbe?s death, his widow Frances died too. Her father William Fleming outlived her by four years but on his death in 1607, Broadlands descended to Francis St Barbe, his eldest living grandson.
Broadlands was said to be a substantial late Tudor farmhouse at this time, but that may be understating it since James I stayed there on two or three occasions. He may have stayed first in 1607, when Romsey received its borough charter, but his visits of 1615 and 1623
are better documented.
The third son, Henry St Barbe, was host for these visits, since his two elder brothers, Francis and Edward, had died.
Henry St Barbe died in 1652 and John inherited the estates. John married Grissel Pinsent but died of ?the sweating sickness? in 1658, leaving three little boys (including Sir John).
In 1723 Sir John St Barbe left Broadlands to his cousin Humphrey Sydenham. He, ruined by the South Sea Bubble, sold it in 1736 to Henry Temple, 1st Vct Palmerston.
Will dated 2 Jan 1592.
