Dr John Hallam (1728-26 August 1811) was educated at Boston Grammar School (c1738-1743).

John Hallam, the only child living beyond childhood of John, twice Mayor of Boston (1741, 1754) and Jane Wright, was born in 1728. He received his early education at Boston Grammar School before being removed to Eton in 1743. He entered King's College, Cambridge in 1748. He later became canon of Windsor and dean of Bristol.

He died in 1811 and is buried at St George's Chapel, Windsor, in a chapel in the south-west part of the nave. His monument bears a short Latin inscription written by his son, the historian Henry Hallam. His widow who died in 1824, and his only daughter, who died in 1841, are also buried in this chapel.
