Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Wickham was an American Loyalist and attorney. He was one of the very few Loyalists to achieve any sort of national prominence after the American Revolution, and is best remembered for his role in the treason trial of former Vice President Aaron Burr in 1807. Wickham was the oldest son of John Wickham Sr. and his wife Hannah Fanning. Wickham was born in the colony of New York in the village of Cutchogue. His father was a minister in the Anglican Church and a Loyalist, while his uncle Parker Wickham was also a Loyalist, and was active in the local government. After the American Revolution, Parker Wickham was banished from New York State under an act of attainder. Despite vigorously declaring his innocence, Parker Wickham was never granted a trial and was sentenced to death if he returned to New York. The unfairness of this bitter event gave John Wickham a life-long appreciation of the sanctity of a person's legal rights, regardless of their political affiliation
