John was the son of Thomas Fanshawe (1722–1797) and Ann Gascoyne (1724–1762). In 1772 he married Mary Parkinson (1747–1811) and they had five children. Probably due to the continuing illness of his father, John took up residence at Parsloes Manor House in 1793. John only survived his father for six years, dying in 1803; he was the first of the Fanshawe family to be buried in the vault in Dagenham Parish Church.
