Felton 1: Felton of Edlingham, Felton of Litcham, Felton of Playford
The children of the following Sir William are shown as reported in TCP Hylton.
Sir William de Felton,1st of Edlingham, Northumberland d 21.09.1358, Constable of Roxburgh Castle
m1 ??mother of at least Alianore
1. Sir William de Felton, 2nd of Edlingham d Vitoria 20.03.1366/7 TCP Hylton reports that the children of William's sisters, Alianore and Agnes, became his heirs. But this seems to be the William shown in BE1883, and confused with his father, who had a son Sir John, shown below as uncle of this William.
2. Alianore de Felton
m Robert de Hilton, 4th Lord of Hilton d before 27.05.1370

BE1883, which does not provide any details on his children, says of John, 2nd Lord, that "nothing further appears known, except that he was an ancestor of the Feltons of Playford". We presume provisionally that this was through a son not mentioned by TCP, as follows.
D. ?? de Felton
Uncertain on number of intervening generations. Some web sites name this son of Sir John as Sir Edmund and show him as father of John m. Agnes Denys father of another John who either was the John who married Joan Mossell or was father of that last-mentioned John.
i. ?? de Felton
1 Note that around this time there was a William Felton alias Chapman 'of Playford', father of Margaret who married John Drury of Rougham 1456-1499. The dates for that John Drury seem to be shortly before Playford came into this family so we suspect that that Drury data was wrong in identifying Margaret's father as 'of Playford'. Nevertheless, it is possible that William was a son of this family.
2 VCH 'An Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk: volume 1', Hundred of Diss: Shelfhanger refers to a sale in 1526 by "Thomas Felton, Esq. which Thomas was son of Robert Felton, Esq. had Margery his wife, sister and heiress to Sir Thomas Sampson of Playford in Suffolk, Knt. which Robert was son of John Chapman, alias Felton, by Joan, the other daughter of Thomas Mossell". That seems to imply that it was Thomas who married Margery Sampson but we presume that that was loose wording and follow BEB1841 which starts with the following John.
a. John Felton the first mentioned by BEB1841, presumably the "John Chapman alias Felton" mentioned by VCH. BEB1841 identifies John's wife as the heiress of Alcott. VCH identifies her as ...
m Joan Mossell dau/coheir of Thomas Mossell by Margaret (dau of Sir Thomas Vise de Lou, son of William by Rose, sister/heir of Elizabeth de Shotisbroke)

a Sir Anthony Felton of Playford, Sheriff of Suffolk d by 1614
m Elizabeth Grey dau of Henry Grey, 1st Lord of Groby
1 Sir Henry Felton, 1st Bart of Playford d 18.09.1624
TCB identifies Sir Henry's Wife as Dorothy, dau of Sir Nicholas Bacon of Redgrave by Anne Butts, but we suspect that BEB1841 may be correct in identifying her as Dorothy, dau of Sir Bassingborne Gawdy, as he married Dorothy, dau of Sir Nicholas Bacon of Redgrave. This is supported by Visitation Norfolk, 1613, Gawdy.

TCB suggests that Sir Compton dsp and that the following Elizabeth was daughter of his younger brother, John of Worlingham. We provisionally follow BEB1841.

BE1883 mentions a contemporary of the above John of Litcham, 2nd Lord, as a William, Governor of Roxburgh Castle, summoned to parliament in 1342 but not afterwards, who left a son Sir John. TCP Felton shows the William of Roxburgh Castle as the William of Edlingham shown above as uncle of John of Litcham and points out that that summons was to a council rather than to a parliament. As TCP, which seems more reliable than BE1883, identifies William of Edlingham's children differently, as shown above, it might be presumed that BE1883 had confused two if not 3 different Williams, including both the afore-mentioned William, 1st of Edlingham, and his son William. But BE1883 does report Sir John had a daughter, Joan, who married Walter Falconberg and had a son Thomas. This may refer to the Constance who married Thomas de Fauconberg, son of Walter, and is shown by TCP Fauconberge as dau "most probably, of John de Felton yr. br. of Sir William de Felton, of Edlingham, Northumberland". So the following Sir John, presumably one of the heirs of William of Edlingham, could have been identified as his son rather than a younger brother or perhaps more likely given the dates nephew.
