Memorial to John Churchill, King's College Chapel
Monument to John Churchill, the Marquess of Blandford, the only son of the Duke of Marlborough, died 1702 (February 1703 in the Gregorian calendar). His father, also John Churchill, the victor of the Battle of Blenheim in 1704, he had been created the 1st Duke of Marlborough in 1702. Blenheim Palace was built for him by a grateful nation.

The 1st Duke of Marlborough and his wife Sarah (nee Jennings) had four daughters and one son who survived childhood. When the son, John Churchill, the only male heir died of smallpox aged 17 while studying at Cambridge, the Dukedom was likely to die out. Unusually the eldest daughter, Henrietta Churchill, inherited the title 2nd Duchess of Marlborough, her son Charles Spencer became the 3rd Duke of Marlborough. The Dukedom continues to this day with the present incumbent the 12th Duke inheriting his title in 2014. Of course Sir Winston Churchill is a descendant of the first Duke.
