John HERNE was born circa 1594.3,4 He was the son of Richard HERNE and Alice PASKE.1
He was probably the John Heron who matriculated from Clare College, Cambridge, during Lent 1608.3 He entered Lincoln's Inn on 27 January 1611, receiving his call to the bar in 1618.3

John made his will on 12 April 1649, lamenting his physical decay: ‘the roof of my earthly tabernacle is unthatched, the groundsells fail, and ... I am ... made sensible of many obstructions in the middle structure’...
Much of his personal fortune had been expended in bailing out his elder brother, whose business had gone bankrupt, but he was gradually redeeming lost estates, and expected to leave his wife an annual income of £300. He also bequeathed her their Hendon home, though another house in Chancery Lane, London was included in his eldest son’s inheritance.4

Biography
     Herne was frequently referred to as Hearne or Heron by his contemporaries. His father, Richard, came from Tibenham, Norfolk, made his fortune as a Merchant Taylor in London, and rose to the rank of alderman. As a sheriff of London in 1618-19 he helped to supervise the execution of Sir Walter Ralegh. On his death in 1625, Richard owned several London properties, including his shop in Cheapside, besides a suburban retreat at Hendon and a few hundred acres in East Anglia, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. As a younger son, Herne stood to inherit little of this estate, and trained instead as a lawyer at Lincoln’s Inn. Called to the bar in May 1618, he married the daughter of another London merchant three months later, apparently securing a substantial dowry. Around six years later, he was appointed reader at Furnivall’s Inn, the inn of Chancery attached to Lincoln’s Inn, though he was fined in 1626 for neglecting his duties.
In March 1628 Herne was returned to Parliament for Newport in a disputed election. There is no evidence to support J.K. Gruenfelder’s assertion that he was nominated by the duke of Buckingham. Herne lacked connections at Court, and probably relied on the support of another Lincoln’s Inn lawyer, Richard Estcott*, whose brother was then one of the borough officials known as vianders who served as Newport’s returning officers. Thomas Estcott returned Herne unilaterally, however, having failed to win the backing of his fellow viander, and on 14 Apr. the Commons ruled that this departure from the borough’s normal practice invalidated Herne’s election.
     Herne was already living at Hendon by 1628, when he inherited the family home there from his mother. In the following year he was added to the Middlesex bench. During the 1630s he consolidated his legal reputation, frequently appearing as counsel in Star Chamber hearings. He defended two critics of the government, Henry Sherfield* and William Prynne†, during high-profile trials in 1632 and 1634, but his later sympathies lay with the Crown. Although he declined to represent the bishops impeached by Parliament in 1641, he acted for two of the Ship Money judges who were similarly arraigned that year. He also played a leading role in defending Archbishop Laud in 1644. Appointed a bencher of Lincoln’s Inn in 1636, Herne remained an active member of that body until his death. He made his will on 12 Apr. 1649, lamenting his physical decay: ‘the roof of my earthly tabernacle is unthatched, the groundsells fail, and ... I am ... made sensible of many obstructions in the middle structure’. Though evidently a devout man, Herne was unreconciled to Parliament’s liturgical reforms. He requested a simple funeral, ‘yet wouldst not it should be like the burial of an ass or a dog, which the blackish men of these times have barbarously obtruded upon the people under a pretence of avoiding popery and superstition’. Much of his personal fortune had been expended in bailing out his elder brother, whose business had gone bankrupt, but he was gradually redeeming lost estates, and expected to leave his wife an annual income of £300. He also bequeathed her their Hendon home, though another house in Chancery Lane, London was included in his eldest son’s inheritance. Herne’s burial place has not been located. His will was proved on 17 Oct. 1649. Two of his nephews, Joseph and Sir Nathaniel Herne, sat in the Commons after the Restoration.

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, reads:
     Herne (Heron), John (c.1593-1649), barrister, was the younger son of Richard Herne (d. 1625), alderman, and later sheriff, of London and his wife, Alice, daughter of John Paske. He was subsequently adopted by William Robson, salter of London. He was probably the John Heron who matriculated from Clare College, Cambridge, during Lent 1608. From Cambridge he entered Lincoln's Inn on 27 January 1611, receiving his call to the bar in 1618. On 4 August of that year he married, at St Bartholomew by the Exchange, Susanna (fl. c.1600-1660), daughter of John Woodward, grocer of London. On 5 March 1628 he was elected to parliament for Newport, Cornwall, but was unseated on petition.
     During the ensuing two decades Herne assumed a prominent role in a series of important state trials, the most dramatic of which were the proceedings in the Long Parliament in the years 1641-5 against William Laud, archbishop of Canterbury (1633-45), on charges of high treason and misdemeanour. In 1632 he defended the barrister Henry Sherfield, recorder of Salisbury, on a charge in Star Chamber for defacing an offending stained-glass window in St Edmund's Church, Salisbury. In February 1634 he served as counsel for William Prynne, the outspoken barrister of Lincoln's Inn, during his Star Chamber trial for the publication of his controversial work against female players, Histriomastix. During the following year Herne is known to have held the manor of Hendon, Middlesex, paying rent on 32 acres with outbuildings and adjacent land. He became a bencher of his inn in 1637 and in 1640 he was residing in Aldersgate ward, London. In 1641 he acted as one of the counsel for the ship money judges, Sir John Bramston the elder and Sir Robert Berkeley, during proceedings against them in the Long Parliament.
     Herne was one of Archbishop William Laud's original choices for counsel at his impeachment, being named in the prelate's petition of 1 March 1641. Ultimately he shared the archbishop's defence with the Long Parliament's appointee as co-counsel, Sir Matthew Hale. He may also have been the Mr Herne who appeared in defence of the impeached lord mayor Sir Richard Gurney in July 1642. On 11 October 1644 Herne delivered to the House of Lords an argument in law, probably a joint composition with Hale, in which he denied the existence of ‘constructive treasons’ under the English law as set out in Edward III's statute of treasons (1352). Moreover, Herne's argument recognized that Laud's aggrandizement of the forensic and legislative jurisdictions of the clerical estate during his tenure as archbishop of Canterbury constituted at best a mere praemunire. The charges that Laud had ‘subverted the fundamental laws of the land’ in maintaining his jurisdiction over and above that of the king closely resembled in substance and language those against Wolsey and Lingham during Henry VIII's reign and rested on the conflation of high treason with the lesser, non-capital cause of praemunire. On 6 November 1644 Herne visited Laud in the Tower and returned his prayer book that William Prynne had possessed since the Long Parliament's seizure of the prelate's papers in May 1643.
     His precise religious convictions are not known but a provision of his will asking that Archbishop Ussher preach his funeral sermon suggests certain episcopal sympathies. Herne died in London in 1649 leaving properties worth £300 per annum but complained that a suretyship for an improvident brother had left him with little to distribute among his heirs.
     Another John Herne (fl. 1636-1660), probably the elder Herne's son, entered Lincoln's Inn on 11 February 1636. He appears to have been the translator from law French of The learned reading of John Herne esq., late of the honourable society of Lincoln's Inn, upon the statute of 23 H. 8, cap. 3, concerning commissions of sewers (1659). He also published a collection of precedents called The Pleader (1657); The Law of Conveyances (8 vols., 1658); The Modern Assurancer (1658); and The Law of Charitable Uses (8 vols., 1660).

Biography:
     Herne’s family was of Norfolk origin, but his was the third generation to achieve civic office in London. A typically industrious apprentice, he married his master’s daughter the year after the expiry of his indentures and was taken into partnership. The Spanish trade in which the firm was principally concerned was hard-hit by Cromwell’s foreign policy, and Herne was probably the ‘stout and active young citizen’ concerned in Cavalier plots in the City in 1657.
Herne first engaged in parliamentary politics in support of Joseph Williamson at Dartmouth in 1667. Correctly anticipating Williamson’s defeat, he offered to serve him also at Plympton. In both constituencies his interest was based on the extensive West Country connexions of his firm. A tireless worker (in one year he attended 215 out of 217 East India Company courts), Herne made himself useful both to the company and the Government in collecting foreign intelligence, though in the latter case under pledges of the strictest secrecy. His services were ill-rewarded when he stood for Dartmouth in 1673; court influence was used to intimidate his supporters and he was defeated by Josiah Child. The election was quashed owing to an irregularity in the writ, but Herne was unable to regain more than one of his lost votes. He petitioned against the second election on the grounds of bribery, but no result is recorded.
     On appointment to municipal office, Herne showed the same indefatigable industry as in business. He could hardly find a day free for dinner with his old friend Williamson because of sessions business. Herne was personally commended by the King for his loyalty, vigilance and conduct in handling a weavers’ riot against machines in 1675. But he declined to persecute conventiclers; inviting a dozen bishops to dinner, he told them bluntly that City merchants ‘could not trade with their neighbours one day, and send them to gaol the next’. In the same year he gave evidence before the parliamentary committee to hear complaints against the East India Company. For all his experience and worldly knowledge, Herne was badly shaken by the Popish Plot. He wrote seriously to Sir Robert Southwell ‘to know if he should not send his wife and children out of town, for that the massacres of Paris and Ireland were enough talked of beforehand, but believed by none’.
     Meanwhile Herne had improved his interest at Dartmouth by arranging a public water supply for the town, one of his many charities, on which it was believed he spent not less than £1,000 p.a. He stood as a court supporter at the general election of February 1679, writing to Williamson: ‘I glory in your favours, though they are alleged against me to keep me from an employment I am unfit for and desirous to avoid’. His name appears on Shaftesbury’s list as ‘base’. He was an active Member of the first Exclusion Parliament, sitting on 17 committees, of which the most important was for securing the King and kingdom against Popery. In the debate on a Tory pamphlet written in the character of a Jesuit by Dr John Nalson, Herne declared it to be ‘against the doctrine of the Church of England, and there are such desperate hints in it that it is fit he should answer it at the bar’. Nevertheless he voted against the first exclusion bill.
Herne died after a short illness on 10 Aug. 1679, aged 50. His executors held £10,838 of East India stock at the Revolution. The family interest at Dartmouth was re-established in 1689 by his brother Joseph.
Ref Volumes: 1660-1690
Author: John. P. Ferris.4

He is mentioned in his brother Joseph's biography, it reads:
     Herne's brother Sir Nathaniel Herne (c.1629–1679), the eldest son of Nicholas Herne and his second wife, Susan, was apprenticed to Sir John Frederick and took his freedom in the Barber–Surgeons' Company in 1655. On 1 September 1656 he married Frederick's daughter Judith and entered into partnership with his father-in-law. The firm was principally engaged in the Spanish trade and suffered under Cromwell's policy; Herne was probably the ‘stout and active young citizen’ concerned in cavalier plots in the City in 1657.
     Herne led an extremely busy life spanning business and politics. His firm's west country connections led him to engage in parliamentary politics in support of Joseph Williamson in 1667. His attendance at East India Company committee meetings from 1667 onwards was exemplary: he held the deputy governorship from 1672 and the governorship from 1674 until his death, and engaged in covert intelligence gathering for the company and the government. In the City he was elected sheriff in 1674–5, common councilman in 1675–6, and alderman from 1676 until his death. Maintaining his links with Dartmouth, where it is believed that he expended no less than £1000 per annum on improving the town's water supply, he was elected its MP in 1679. In parliament he sat on seventeen committees, the most important being that for securing the king and kingdom against popery. Herne died after a short illness on 10 August 1679, leaving a substantial holding of East India Company stock, valued at the revolution of 1688 at £10,838.
D. W. Jones, rev. Anita McConnell
In today's terms he would be worth £24,400,000.8
