Sir John St Aubyn, 5th Baronet
St Aubyn was born in 1758. His sister was Catherine St Aubyn who was an amateur artist. He was High Sheriff of Cornwall for 1780 and was then Member of Parliament for Truro in 1784, for Penrhyn from 1784 to 1790 and for Helston from 1807 to 1812. St Aubyn was also a well known fossil collector who in addition to his own collection purchased the large collection possessed by Richard Greene, surgeon of Lichfield, d. 1793. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1797.
The baronetcy became extinct on his death in August 1839, aged 81. However, his illegitimate son Edward was created a baronet in his own right in 1866 and was the ancestor of the Barons St Levan.
