Sir John Eyles, 2nd Baronet
He served as a director of the Bank of England, South Sea Company, and East India Company, and served on the commission appointed to oversee estates forfeited to the Crown during the unsuccessful Jacobite rising of 1715. He succeeded to his father's baronetcy in 1716. He was Alderman of Vintry, 19 June 1716, and subsequently of Bridge Without (a ward previously represented by his father) from 22 July 1737 until his death. He was appointed Sheriff of London for 1720 and elected Lord Mayor of London for 1726.
He purchased the estate of Gidea Hall, in Havering, demolished the old mansion there, and built a new "elegant" house. He married his cousin, Mary Haskin Styles, the daughter of Joseph Haskin Stiles by Sarah Eyles, the daughter of Sir John Eyles, elder brother of the first baronet. Together they had two children, a boy and a girl.
