John Child was a Major in the London Militia. In "Le Neve's Knights", in the record (page 375) of the marriage of James Thwayts to Dorothy Child, her father is listed as "Major John Child of London, elder brother of Sir Josiah Child". This is confirmed in the House of Commons Journal on the British History Online website:
