Sir John Nicholl (1759-1838) entered parliament as an MP in 1802 and spent thirty years serving in various constituencies. He had trained in the law but had not gone one to become a barrister. In 1798 he succeeded Sir William Scott as King's advocate and was later appointed as a judge with a seat on the Privy Council. Within this role as king's advocate, he regularly briefed the Council and Secretaries of State on international law and maritime matters. In parliament, he was a staunch defender of the established Church and the Admiralty, and Ecclesiastical courts.
