John Martin was not a partner in the family bank, but ‘appears to have chosen as a profession that of being his father’s heir’.1 He was elected for Tewkesbury after a contest, and was classed by Dupplin as a country gentleman supporting the court. His only known vote was against the Address on 13 Nov. 1755. He did not stand in 1761.
He died 28 May 1794.
