Sir John Gainsford
RH7 History Group Factsheet: http://www.rh7.org/factshts/gainsfrd.pdf
We are not sure when Sir John Gainsford was born, but it was probably around 1469. During his life he was married six times and had twenty children – fifteen daughters and five sons.
Sir John was appointed Sheriff of Surrey at least three times, in 1500, 1517 and 1533; this was at a time when there were only four Justices in the whole of Surrey and so Sir John must have been quite a notable in the county.
