The family home was Heyford House, near Bicester in Oxfordshire, which John and his wife, Mary, purchased after their marriage.

Note from Helen: Having read that John ran a practice in genealogy and heraldry it would not surprise me if he had drawn up his own family tree. If such a tree exists I would love to take a look at the Egan branch as my husband is connected to John through the Egans (my husband's grandfather Stephen Hussey was a third cousin of John's - John and Stephen's Egan great-grandparents were brother and sister respectively). If anyone has a copy of such a tree I would be very grateful if you would email
