Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Break the two party system!

So people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

m Margaret ? ABT 1301, Shelton, Norfolk, England
Kathryn M Brown, p 16, says he suceeded his cousin, Richard, to the Shelton estates. He was also known as John de Schelton. He lived in Skelton Castle, Cumberland; and was a Knight of the Shire of Cumberland. Kathryn M Brown, p 13, gives quite a bit of data on Sir John and lists his two wives as Maud and Hawys, daughter of Prince of Powys of Wales.
By 12 Nov 1306, he had done homage for his inheritance and the escheator beyong Trent was ordered to deliver his lands to him. In 1302, John was found to have a quarter fee in Shelton, held of the Earl Marshall as well as land in Heverlond. He was summoned to the Great Council in Westminster 9 May 1324. John DeShelton married Margaret (also called Maud). Some sources says that she was the daughter of Robert De Brus, E. Carrick, and Margaret De Galloway, w. of William De Carlyle. The marriage seems to have been very unhappy. He was dead by 1333, for 27 Jan 1333 a writ was issued from York ordering John De Blomvill, escheator in the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk etc., to take into the King’s hands, the lands late of John De Shelton, tenant-in-chief. In another writ from Cowick the following 15 Mar, the escheator was ordered to ensure that any dower assigned to Margaret, widow of John De Shelton was removed from her hands, as the King had learned that she had long withdrawn from her husband to be with her paramour and since she was never reconciled with him, should have no dower. Copinger says that she eventually remarried to Thomas Kenyng.
There is also an Edmund Shelton in this time frame who possibly is part of this family. A writ of protection was issued to Edmund De Shelton 28 Mar 1324 for going with the King’s brother Edmund, Earl of Kent beyond the seas. 30 Apr 1327 a writ issued from Nottingham noted that Edmund De Shelton, William De Wade and others had rescued prisoners from Thomas Cappe, William Boterel and assaulted their custodians. The IPM for John Bernak 22 Apr Edward III, Edmund is listed as holding Shelton, Bedingham, Osmundeston and Mundeham (where is called Edmund de Shelton, Knt) for 3 knights fees. As these are lands consistently held by the family Shelton of Shelton, Edmund must have some direct tie with them. From the dates in which he appears in the records, he fits best as a son of Sir John De Shelton, though possibly could also be a younger brother.
Sh19 =24Sir John SHELTON b c d c 1333 / 1350 In 1308, his father settled the manor of Hardwick on John and his wife
m Agatha, probably a daughter of Sir John Gedding of Lincolnshire. The arms of Gedding were found by Blomefield to impale those of Shelton in several armorial windows and manuscripts. She appears to have died before 1313, for in that year John Shelton settled the same manor on himself, his wife Joan and their heirs. The Visitation has her as the second wife and has no children assigned to her. Blomefield has a third wife for John Shelton, Alice daughter of Sir Robert de Burgullion, though the Visitation does not. Sir John Shelton sold lands near the Church of St Helen near Mundham to Walter De Filby and Sir Thomas Preston. He apparently did not survive his father for long since Apr 1333, William, Bishop of Norwich was given custody of the lands of Ralph Shelton son of John Shelton during his minority. Alice Shelton died before 1334, her IPM being 26 Aug 1335 where in Shelton she held a messuage, lands and rents held for her life of the inheritance of Ralph De Shelton etc. A writ issued 1 May 1334 with an order to William De Rosteleye the escheator to take into the King's hands the lands late of Alice, late the wife of John De Shelton, deceased, tenant-in-chief.

Ralph SHELTON (Sir d 1315, Shelton, Norfolk, England d 17 Nov 1378, Shelton, Norfolk bur Nov 1378, St. Marys, Shelton, Norfolk, England William, Bishop of Norwich was given custody of his estates in 1333 until such time as Ralph attained majority. At his mother's death in 1334, he was made Lord of the Manor. Though because the honor of knighthood was so expensive, he put off that title as long as possible. In 1346, King Edward III granted his letters of patent showing that he was in the King's own company at Crecy ( a great English victory in the Hundred Years' War 1337-1453, a succession of wars between England and France. It was one of the first battles in which the English soldiers used gunpowder) and was knighted for his part in saving the life of the Black Prince. He built the Old Shelton Hall which was destroyed by fire in 1600.

m2 Joan De Plays b. ABT 1326 - d. 4 Jan 1405) dau of Sir Richard de Plais of Wetyng) 1355, Sudbury, Suffolk

According to both Blomefield and the Visitation, on his marriage to Joan de Plays in 1346, Ralph settled Shelton and Bedingham manors on himself, his wife and their issue. Kathryn M Brown, p 18, adds additional information and shows four children: Sir Ralph, John, William, and Robert. Through his first marriage, Sir Ralph became heir to the great estates of Sir Ralph Burgullion of Great Snoring, Suffolk, England, and of Rediston. He was also Lord of the Manor of BrentElleigh in Suffolk. In Aug 1362, he and Sir Oliver De Calthorpe witnessed a quit claim between Ralph De Hemenhale and Creeke Abbey. In a writ issued from Westminster 10 Nov 1364, William De Elmham, who was going beyond the seas, had letters nominating Sir Ralph Shelton and Geoffrey Dersham as his attorneys. 12 May 1367 the King appointed Ralph, Sir William De Hoo and Sir Edmund Thorp to make inquisitions into the King’s business in Norfolk and Suffolk to ensure that the King was receiving all the revenue to which he was entitled. 6 Oct 1368, he attended the wedding of the same Sir Edmund Thorp to Margaret daughter of Richard De La Rivere. 28 Mar 1371, Ralph, Robert Le Mortimer, Roger Geneye, William Clere, William De Norton and John De Cressingham were ordered by the King to collect a parish subsidy in Norfolk to safeguard the defense of England and further the war in France. The following 8 Jun the same men were given a mandate to collect in Norfolk without delay, a subsidy of 116 shillings from each parish amounting to 4674 pounds. 1 Feb 1376, Ralph was ordered to take into the King’s hands the lands in the county of Suffolk of Roger Le Walsh, deceased and to make inquiries touching his lands and as to his heir. He died soon after and in his will, Sir Ralph Shelton ordered his body to be buried in the chancel of St Mary’s church at Shelton. Copinger says he died 17 Nov 1373, Blomefield gives 1375 and the Visitation says his will was made 6 Oct 1378 and proved 30 Nov 1380 (though they do not have the text of his will). The Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem, writ issued 30 Mar 1376 says he died 16 Oct last (1375) and left with his wife Joan, daughters Joan aged 12, Margaret aged 5 and Isabel, half a year.

m Alice UVEDALE b 1351 dau of Sir Thomas de Uvedale of Tacolneston
When he was 2 years old, he inherited Great Snoring and Thirsford co Norfolk from his kinsman Hugh De Burgullion. The NRS Vol 19 pt 2 in the biographical notes of the Archdeaconry of Norfolk donors, notes Hugh De Burgullion son of Sir Robert Burgullion, the younger (this Sir Robert being a brother of Alice De Burgullion wife of Sir John Shelton), who died childless around 1349. The NRS goes on to say that it seems that Anne Burgullion who married Sir Ralph Shelton, senior, was his sister for at his death the Burgullion estates passed to the Sheltons. In 1376, Ralph inherited his father’s lands and estate on his death and at this time he was married to Alice Uvedale. 21 Dec 1382, he with other prominent men of Norfolk received a directive from the King to investigate treasonable insurrection in the county and another writ in the same time frame was issued for Ralph and John, Duke of Lancaster; John De Clifton; Robert De Howard and Oliver De Calthorpe to be made commissioners of the peace and oyer and terminer for the county of Norfolk. He was asked to perform the same function with John, Duke of Norfolk 25 Apr 1386, 12 Jul 1388, 15 Jul 1389 (along with Simon Barrett this time), on 28 Jun 1390, 5 Mar 1397, 22 Jul 1397 (with John, Duke of Lancaster), 12 Nov 1397 (with John, Duke of Lancaster; Edmund, Duke of York; John, Duke of Exeter; Thomas, Duke of Norfolk and Simon Barrett). 1 Mar 1384, Sir Ralph Shelton and others were directed to enquire about the trespass and other offences in the prior of St Mary’s, Walshingham co Norfolk, where quarrels had arisen between the prior and convent. Was on the voyage of St. Malbes de L'Isle and into Scotland with Richard II and then into Spain, where Sir Hugh Hastings died. In 1385, Ralph attended John of Gaunt on his great expedition in Spain and was at the famous battle of Nazarett. In 1397 a grand breakfast was provided at Norwich for Sir Ralph Shelton, Sir Edmund Thorp and many others of the nobility and gentry of Norfolk. 20 Jun 1398 he and Sir Miles Stapleton and others were commissioned to redress offences and execute statues in Norfolk. 14 Jul 1402, the King directed Sir Ralph along with Sir Thomas Bardolf, Sir Thomas Morley and Sir John Heveningham to array men at arms to defend the sea coast against an invasion of the King’s enemies and 2 Jul 1405 he was again ordered to assembly men at arms to resist the King’s enemies from France and Picardy and then to go to Wales to strengthen troops there. When his step-mother Joan Shelton died in 1405/6, Ralph was 58 years old and inherited the remainder of her estate as she left no heirs of her own. 14 Jul 1406 he was again commissioned to go to Wales to strengthen the King’s forces there. King Henry IV was like most medieval kings in monetary straits from constant warfare, and 4 Sep 1405 he ordered Sir Ralph Shelton, Edmund Oldhall, Nicholas Wichingham and the Sheriff of Norfolk to collect money from the Norfolk parishes for a loan to King Henry IV to defend against the King’s enemies in Wales and enemies in France who have landed in Wales. 5 Nov 1406, he was directed by the King to determine the worth of the Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex estates of the late Sir Robert De Hemenhale and to determine who Sir Robert’s next heir would be. In 1409, Ralph presented Henry Turnour as pastor at Hardwick church. 1 Dec 1411, he was directed to mediate a dispute between Sir Thomas Morley and Sir Thomas Hemgrave. In 1424, not long before his death, Ralph along with John, Duke of Norfolk; Walter, Bishop of Norwich and John Heydon purchased Neville’s manor in Hethill co Norfolk.
Sh17-1-1Alice SHELTON d c 1478 Apparently the only daughter of Sir Ralph Shelton and Alice Uvedale, at least to survive childhood. Both Blomefield and the Visitation note that she was the first wife of Sir Edmund Bedingfield with whom she had only one daughter, Margaret. Sir Edmund married as his second wife Margaret, daughter of Sir John Scott of Scots Hall co Kent. He was made a Knight Banneret 9 Jun 1487 and his will was dated 12 Oct 1496 and proven 28 Jan 1496/7.

The earliest record found of him is in 1591-92, when, as a youth, he is mentioned as heir in remainder to his father Roger Sheldon, in the lawsuit between his grandfather, Richard, and his half-brother, Henry Sheldon. Arthur also succeeded to the little cottage and 4 acres in Ashford called Lowefield which was in the family as early as 1494. "The will of Arthur Sheldon of Ashford, co.

Four years later he was elected warden of All Souls College, Oxford. During the years 1632-1639 he received the livings of Hackney (1633); Oddington, Oxfordshire; Ickford, Buckinghamshire (1636); and Newington, Oxfordshire; besides being a prebendary of Gloucester from 1632. In 1638 he was on a commission appointed to visit Merton College, Oxford. He was intimate with the Royalist leaders, participated in the negotiations for the Uxbridge treaty of 1644, and collected funds for Charles II in exile. In 1648 he was ejected from All Souls by order of parliament, and imprisoned for some months, but he regained the wardenship in 1659. In 1660 he became bishop of London and master of the Savoy, and the Savoy Conference was held at his lodgings. He was consecrated archbishop of Canterbury in 1663. He was greatly interested in the welfare of Oxford University, of which he became chancellor in 1667, succeeding Edward Hyde, 1º Earl of Clarendon (b. 1609 - d. 1674). The Sheldonian Theatre at Oxford was built and endowed at his expense.

Catherine Barrett, daughter and heir of Simon Barrett co Norfolk and through her he held the manor of Barrett’s in Hardwick. 2 Dec 1404, he received a pardon from the King for not appearing in court to answer Walter De Watham concerning a debt of 20 marks. 8 Feb 1415 William received another pardon, this time from King Henry V, for not appearing before justices of the bench of Henry IV to answer Robert Blake of London on a debt of 40 shillings. He died 20 Jul 1421 and his IPM was held 9 Oct 1421. The Visitation of Norfolk says that he was executor of his brother Sir Ralph Shelton, but as William died in 1421 and Sir Ralph in 1424, William could not have been his brother’s surviving executor. For the same reason, he could not have survived as executor of his brother Robert who died in 1423. William must have married late in life and to a much younger woman, as he was quite old at his death (assuming he was born between 1348 and 1358) but his son and heir John was only 17 at his father’s death. Catherine survived for many years and from 1426-1452 “Katherine, Lady of Shelton, relic of William Shelton”, presented 9 different rectors to the church at Hardwick. In 1426 she held fees in Shelton and 1432 presented to the church at Thirsford as a patron. Catherine died 3 Aug 1456 and was buried beside William in Great Snoring.

Some sources say that he was succeeded by his brother, William, who apparently had no sons, and was succeeded by his nephew, Ralph. But others, and according to the dates I agree with them, says that John was William son. 27 Feb 1422 the King commissioned Edmund Wynter and Richard Elleswyk to the keeping of all lands late of William Shelton, Esq tenant-in-chief by knight’s service, during the minority of John, his son and heir, with the marriage of the latter also given to their custody. He had livery of his lands in 1427. In 1428, he held fees in Osmundeston, Bedingham, and Kerdeston. He died a young man on the Monday before the Feast of St George the Martyr, 23 Apr 1431, seized of the manors of Brent Illegh co Suffolk, Shelton Netherhall, Snoring, Thetford and Hindringham, IPM dated 9 May 1431. 1 Apr 1431, the escheator for Norfolk was directed to take into the King’s hands the lands late of John Shelton, Esq in Norfolk and Suffolk. After her husband’s death Margaret Bures or Brewys held the manor of Brent Illegh for life. 20 Jul 1432, she was given license from the King for 1 mark paid in the hanaper to demise 1/3 of the manors of Great Snoring and Shelton co Norfolk. 10 Jul 1432 she received the King’s permission to marry to whom ever she wished “of the King’s allegiance”. Margaret remarried to Robert Allington, son of William Allington and Joan de Burgh and died in 1479.

Sh14-2Elizabeth SHELTON d 1523 The Visitation lists Elizabeth Shelton, daughter by Ralph’s first wife Joan as the one mentioned by Walter Lehart, Bishop of Norwich and the wife of Sir Richard Fitz-Lewes and other Elizabeth as daughter by second wife Margaret, with no information on birth, death or marriage. Sir Richard Fitz-Lewes was probably born about 1446 and on his succession initially resided at Bardwell, Suffolk, doubtless in straightened circumstances. Some of the Essex manors, including West Horndon, were, however, restored to him in 1480, but he later gained greater favour as a loyal supporter of Henry VII. He was knighted after the Battle of Stoke, 9 Jun 1487; and was made Banneret at the Battle of Blackheath in 1497. He is also recorded as Sheriff of Essex and Hertfordshire in 1493. He married four times and had a good number of children. His first wife, whom he married before 1466, was Alice, daughter of John Harleston of Shimpling, Norfolk. His second wife's descent is unknown, though is has been conjectured that her name was Maud. The fact that she is shown in ordinary dress suggests that she came from a family of modest social standing. Sir Richard's third wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Ralph Shelton; she died in 1523 and was buried at Dagenham. Sir Richard was survived by his last wife, Joan Hornby of Lincolnshire, who subsequentky married Sir John Norton of Faversham, Kent. She is commemorated by a tomb at Faversham, but in her will, dated 1535, asked to be buried at at West Horndon, her second husband having opted to be buried at Milton with his first wife. Sir Richard died in 1528, at the great age of about 82, having survived all his brothers and even his own sons. His heir was his grand-daughter by his eldest son John Fitzlewes, Ellen, wife of John Mordaunt. Thus, despite the fecundity of Sir Richard's wives, the name of FitzLewis died with him. Perhaps this was why he chose to be commemorated by such a splendid brass celebrating in heraldry the Fitzlewis name. The Fitzlewes brass at Ingrave Church is one of the many figure brasses of Essex listed and illustrated in the newly published "The Monumental Brasses of Essex" by William Lack, Martin Stuchfield and Philip Whittemore.

Notes: eldest son and heir. At his father’s death, he had livery of his inheritance including Shelton, Snoring, Carrow and others and 8 Jun 1559 he was given license to take possession. He was High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1570. During his term as High Sheriff, he developed a close relationship with John Parkhurst, Bishop of Norwich. The Bishop held Ralph in great esteem as seen in a series of letters published in the Norfolk Record Society and Ralph proved to be a great ally during the prosecution of George Thimelthorpe, one of the county officers accused of corruption. Sometime after 1558, Ralph sold the Suffolk manor of Mildren which had been in his family since 1480 to Robert Thorpe. 31 May 1561, he paid 5 pounds in alms for William Godsalve, Esq., who had died very suddenly. 8 May 1566, he was made commissioner of the sewers with several other Norfolk notables. In 1573, he presented William Mann as the rector of Hardwick church and in 1576 presented Reginald Nuthall as rector to the same church. He was knighted at Norwich by Queen Elizabeth 22 Aug 1578 along with Thomas Knevett, Edward Clere, Roger Wodehouse, Henry Wodehouse. 19 Jun 1573, Ralph was made a justice of the peace for Norfolk and appointed again 23 Jun 1574. 20 Mar 1574 Ralph was commissioned with Edward Flowerdew and Roger Wodehouse to inquire into the death of Edward Cusshin and 17 Sep of the same year, served in the same capacity upon the death of Stephen Burrell. Ralph married 13 Sep 1551 Mary, daughter of Sir William Wodehouse of Waxham. In the Shelton family church at the manor, there are ten panels on the left side of the altar, which record the marriage of Mary Wodehouse and Ralph Shelton, as well as the birth of their children Margaret, Thomas, John, Ralphe, and Edward. She was buried at Shelton 6 Jul 1558. He married secondly 16 Oct 1570 at Shelton to Anne, daughter of Thomas Barrow, Esq of Barningham co Suffolk by Mary daughter and coheir of Henry Bures at Acton co Suffolk. Sir Ralph died 3 Oct 1580 and was buried at Shelton on the north side of the altar 6 Oct 1580. His IPM was held 25 Apr 1582 and another 28 Apr 1584 where he was found to hold Carrow in Norwich which he had prior to his death settled on Thomas Barrow with remainder to Anne and his children by her, as well as being seized of Shelton, Snoring Magna, Barettes and Thirsford. His widow Anne, married after 9 Jun 1585 as her second husband Sir Charles Cornwallis and they jointly held Carrow Abbey. In 1589 she presented to the church of St Julian’s in Norwich. Sir Charles Cornwallis had a distinguished career including serving as Ambassador to Spain and treasurer and died at Harborne co Suffolk 21 Dec 1629.

According to records in the British Museum, he was Minister to Spain, Secretary to the Prince of Wales and one of the entourage of the Earl of Carlisle on the trip to France in 1612 to arrange for the marriage of Charles I with the sister of the French King. It was this Sir Ralph who held the Norfolk and Sufolk estates in 1606 (succeeding his brother John) prior to the sale of Shelton. In an account of his marriage to Jane West he is given as Ralph Sheldon, Esquire of Beoley, Worcestershire. Sir Ralph was a member of the Second and Third London Companies. In all the Colonial records of the Second Charter granted to the London Companies, 23 May 1609, the names of Sir Ralph Shelton of Norfolk England, a Captain Shelton and a James Shelton, Gentleman, appear. The Second London Company sailed under Lord De La Warr with nine ships and 500 people. The admiral's ship named "Sea Venture". They landed in America in 1610. A charter was granted to the Third London Company in 1611. As a member of Parliment, Sir Ralph signed the petition circulated there by the Company in 1610. There is nothing to indicate that Sir Ralph ever came to America to live. If so, he returned to England; but his son James Shelton, Gentlman, came with Lord De La Warr in Jun 1610, remained and founded the Shelton family of America and Virginia.

He and his father were members of the "London Company" James had a land grant on the Potomac, 16 Oct 1650. Part of "Currioman" Westmoreland County, Virginia was one of the original land grants to James. This grant was probably taken up by his son Thomas Shelton, who died in Cecil County, MD in 1650.

The Visitation also says that William married secondly to Elizabeth daughter of Richard Townshend of Rainham by Catherine daughter of Sir Humphrey Brown. In Anne’s father’s will there is a curious note “to daughter Godsalve ?200, if she marry some gentleman by her own consent with the advice of her friends” which suggests that her husband died by this time so there would seem to be some conflict in the fact that he married again after her death in 1588. Another unresolved conflict is that Blomefield notes that 31 May 1561 Mr Ralph Shelton paid 5 pounds to be given in alms for William Godsalve, Esq who died very suddenly in Whitsun week. The Harleian Society has her married to a second husband named Grey.

In a letter from Eleanor Brydges to the Earl of Rutland it was written that "no one ever bought her husband more dearly", speaking of an incident when the Queen reportedly broke Mary’s finger by hitting her with a hairbrush. The Queen, in a passion at the discovery of what had taken place, "telt liberall bothe with bloes and yevel words". But after that, Elizabeth not only sanctioned the marriage, but appointed the new Mrs. Scudamore as gentlewoman of the bedchamber. Mary had hundreds of gowns under her charge, and kept careful inventory of them all.

Notes: second son. Often called Sir Richard Shelton of Rowley Regis, from the manor of that name in Warwickshire. Richard studied law at the Inner Temple and was employed by the Duke of Buckingham to handle his private affairs. He was appointed by King Charles I as Solicitor General Oct 1625 and was knighted by the King at Hampton Court 31 Oct 1625. Sir Richard was elected to Parliament for Bridgnorth 17 Jan 17 Jan 1625/6 and for Guildford 3 Feb, but in the commons his lack of debating skills and general incompetence made him easy prey for the opposition. 6 Mar 1627/8 he was re-elected to Parliament for Bridgnorth and in 1628 was appointed treasurer of the Inner Temple. In Oct 1634 being according to Clarendon “an old, illiterate, useless person”, he was forced to resign as Solicitor General and was succeeded by Sir Edward Littleton. Richard retired to his manor at West Bromwich which he had acquired from his cousin William Stanley in 1626 and lived there peacefully during the Civil War. Richard was mentioned in the will of his brother Robert 23 May 1642. 23 Jul 1642 Lettice died and was buried at West Bromwich. Sir Richard Shelton of West Bromwich, co Staffs, made his will 26 Jul 1642 where he asked to be buried in the church in West Bromwich near his recently deceased wife. He mentions William Boothe of Middle Temple, Humphrey Lowe of Oaksmoore co Salop (possibly married to his sister Alice), Thomas Pearson of Clement’s Inn, niece Folliot and her husband and children, nephews Richard and Henry Lowe, unmarried daughter of his brother “Roger” (Robert) Shelton, sister Shelton. He named as his right heir Alice Lowe who received lordship of West Bromwich. Executors were Humphrey Lowe and Thomas Boothe, who proved his will 10 May 1648.

Notes: Third son, a clerk who was Master of Metingham College and still living in 1538 when he was mentioned in the will of his brother Ralph Shelton of Brome. Copinger says that Mettingham Castle was converted to a college and the arms of Richard Shelton, one of the last master of the college with several matches of his family ornament the walls of the Keep which was the residence of the master. In 1492, he was named in the will of his maternal grandmother Elizabeth Clere. Richard held the manor of Peter’s Hall in Bunwell. 27 Nov 1505, King Henry VII issued a writ from Westminster issuing a pardon to Sir John Tate, John Shelton, Richard Shelton and 300 others of all offenses in regulating trade. He was probably the Richard Shelton who presented the rector at the church at Redenhall in 1518. Blomefield noted that Richard had such skill in water works that in 1528, his advice was used in cutting Yarmouth Haven.

Robert SHELTON b c 1307 In 1316 Robert and his brother John sold their share in the manor of Heverland to another brother Nicholas. In 1325 he and William Tastard were guardians of John De Lowdham as noted in church records in Frense. In 1333, Robert Shelton, clerk, had land in Shelton.
Sh23-4Nicholas SHELTON In 1316 he and his wife Alice purchased shares of the manor of Heverland from his brothers John and Robert. Blomefield says that he and his wife Alice had a son Thomas.

Sh24-2Thomas SHELTON listed as 2nd son in his father’s IPM in 1306. Blomefield says that this Thomas and his brother Henry presented to the church in Scole.

Another writ was issued 26 Mar 1324 to him for protection to go beyond the seas with Edmund, Earl of Kent.

Sh25-2John SHELTON of Stradbrooke Listed by the Visitation of Norfolk as a son of Henry de Shelton and shows him with one son, John, though his wife’s name was not shown. The Harleian MSS of the Knights of Edward I have perhaps this John listed as Sir John Shelton serving for Robert de Shelton on 6 Jul 1277. As the son of Robert de Shelton was either not yet born or an infant in 1277, it was likely this John who is referenced. If so, then he was likely the John de Shelton summoned from Norfolk and Suffolk to serve against the Scots 24 Jun 1301. May also be the John de Shelton pardoned 10 Nov 1303 for the death of a man in consideration for his service in Scotland (the letter patent issued from Dumferline on that date reads “Pardon in consideration of service in Scotland to John de Shelton for the death of Roger le Yongebonde of Shelton”). The Visitation indicates that he died in 1306.
