Charles Edward St. John Harris St. John

Charles Edward St. John Harris St. John (1873-1953) was the son of Charles Edward Harris (1843-1917) who, by Royal Licence in 1907, added the name St John (pronounced Sinjun) to his own name and, just to make sure, added it as a forename to that of his son. Dad had a WPB bookplate, too. I am sure the duplicate coats of arms reflect this repetetive naming. They once lived at Tylney Hall in Hampshire, now a hotel, and the younger St John once owned Borough Court in Hampshire, which was built in 1333.
