    Notes 
    • Christian Santken and his family lived on Silver Street in London. St. Olaves Silver Street was one of the smallest parishes in London, and was also the home of William Shakespeare. Shakespeare worshipped at St. Olaves Silver Street primarily because church attendance was compulsory at that time, punishable by fine or jail.
      Records of the Dutch Reformed Church of London (Austin Friars) contain the following 1617 record of "Christian Santken," who was clearly identical to Christopher St. John: Strangers. The Names of Handycraftmen strangers, members of the Dutch Congregation in London, with their wyues (wives), children, servants, and their continuance here, as neere could be gathered.
      In Silverstreet, Christian Santken, his wife English, five children, buttonmaker, (dwelt here) 36 years.
      In "Returns of Aliens", Christian was recorded in 1621 as "Christopher Sensom," and in 1625 as "Christopher Sensum," both times as a Stranger in "St. Alphage and St. Olaves."
      As "Christopher Zanshone," Joan's husband Christopher made a nuncupative will two days before his death, as follows:
      In the name of God amen, memorandum, that on or about the Seventeenth day of June anno dmi 1629, Christofer Zanshone of the parish of St. Olaves in Silver Street London, Buttonmaker, being sicke in body but in perfect mind and memorie with an intent to make his Last will and testament by words of man nuncupative, uttered and spake twis words or the verie same in effect following viz I give to my four sonnes Mathias, James, Thomas, and Nicholas, tenne twenty shillings a peece.
