  John Venn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Venn (August 4, 1834 - April 4, 1923), was a British mathematician, who is famous for conceiving the Venn diagrams, which are used in many fields, including set theory, probability, logic, statistics, and computer science.
Venn's main area of interest was logic and he published three texts on the subject.
He wrote The Logic of Chance in 1866, Symbolic Logic which introduced the Venn diagrams in 1881, and The Principles of Empirical Logic in 1889.

A devout Puritan, Venn and his wife Mary were members of the congregation of All Hallows in Bread Street — a parish noted for its zeal and godliness.
Venn was also active in the London militia, having been a member of the Honourable Artillery Company since 1614 and attaining the rank of lieutenant-colonel in the Yellow regiment of the London Trained Bands by 1642.
In cooperation with his colleague Isaac Penington, Venn led the campaign demanding the prosecution of the Earl of Strafford, and mobilised demonstrations against the power of Archbishop Laud and the supposed influence of the Catholics.

The commonplace assumption that regicide was the achievement of clear-eyed revolutionaries single-mindedly determined in their pursuit of retributive justice and the destruction of earthly tyranny does not take account of the sheer energy and imagination which the trial commissioners devoted to avoiding it.
The desire to punish 'that man of blood' really only contributed to regicide insomuch as the trial commissioners were forced eventually to abandon their elaborate efforts to place the King in constitutional check-mate because of the danger of ignoring any longer the dangerous emotions stirring within the army, the City and elsewhere.
John Evelyn was present on 17 January, when much important business was transacted, but the clerks recorded that at the court's second meeting, in the afternoon, the chamber was 'cleared of strangers'.

John Blakiston, son of the Rev Marmaduke Prebend of Durham, was a devout puritan and parliamentarian.
In 1798 Rev Mark Noble in his book on the 'English Regicides,' states "it is singular that in the Nation's trial of King Charles I., his baptismal name is invariably given as John, but it was Joseph; his brother John was one of Oliver's committee for the county of Northumberland so late as 1657".
Grandson of John and nephew of Nehemiah, Nathaniel Blakiston was Colonial Governer of sucessively Montesarrat and Maryland.(1) He was married to Dame Thomazine Thornhill who died 1697 on board the HMS Mermaid.

This theory is not supported by any evidence, but is derived entirely from the unsubstantiated presupposition that a certain number of the regicides must have been reluctant to sign the death-warrant and ready almost at once to retreat from their action.
The identities of those regicides who signed before Garland must be carefully scrutinised if a charge of possible irresolution is to be sustained.
In spite of his relative insignificance, he was one of six regicides executed in 1660, nominally because he did not surrender but was arrested.
