  • Notes 
    • He was also known as Charles Paulett. In 1655 he was a Cavalier prisoner.1 He was styled as Lord St. John in 1655.1 He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Winchester in 1660.1 He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Hampshire between 1661 and 1675.1 He held the office of Warden of the New Forest between 1668 and 1675.1 He held the office of Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire between 1668 and 1675.1 He was Keeper of the King's Lodge at Petersham in 1671.1 He succeeded to the title of 6th Marquess of Winchester on 5 March 1674/75.1 He was invested as a Privy Counsellor (P.C.) on 22 April 1679.1 He was a Commissioner of Claims in 1689.1 He was Colonel of the Regiment of Foot between 1689 and 1698.1 He held the office of Warden of the New Forest between 1689 and 1699.1 He gained the title of 1st Duke of Bolton [England] on 9 April 1689.1 On 20 April 1692 he was among those excepted from pardon in the declaration of King James II.1
           Bishop Burnett writes that "he was a man of a strange mixture. He had the spleen to a high degree and affected an extravagent behaviour; for many weeks he would not open his mouth till such an hour of the day when he thought the air was pure. He changed the day into night, and often hunted by torch-light, and took all sorts of liberties to himself, many of which were very disagreeable to those about him. He was a man of most profuse expense,a nd of a most ravenous avarice to support that; and tho' he was much hated, yet he carried matters before him with such authority and success, that he was in all respects the great riddle of the age."2
