It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system

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

Shirley: Shirley of Ettington Ettendon, Shirley of Preston, Shirley of Shirley, Shirley of Staunton Stanton, Shirley of West Grinstead, Shirley of Westneston Wiston
m2 1606 Grace Stapley bpt 06.12.1586 dau of Anthony Stapley of Framfield
Sh30. Sasuallo or Sewallus of Ettington, etc. b c 1925 d c 1085
Sh29 Fulcher of Ettington, etc. b c 1060 d c 1105
Sh28-1 Henry ancestor of Shirley of Ireton and families named Ireton
Sh28 Sewallis of Shirley b c 1080 d c 1129
Sewallis and the next few generations may well have been known as 'de Ettington' rather than 'de Shirley'.
m Matilda dau of Ridel of Halaughton
Sh27 Henry de Shirley b c 1110 d c 1165
m Joanna dau of John de Clinton of Essex
Sh26 Sewallis de Shirley b c 1140 a 1167
m Isabel Meynell dau of Robert Meynell of Langley Meynell
Visitation adds 2 intervening generations here: Henry then Sewall, apparently younger son of Henry the other son being another Henry and father of the following, but greater span between the guesstimated births indicate the existance of (an) intermediate generation(s).
Sh25 Sir James de Shirley and Ettington b c 1240 d c1278
m Agnes de Walton dau of Simon de Walton, Bishop of Norwich
Sh24 Sir Ralph de Shirley, Sheriff of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire b c 1270 d 1327
m Margaret dau of Walter de Waldeshief of Fairfield
Sh23 Sir Thomas Shirley b c 1310
m Isabel Basset sister of Ralph Basset, Lord of Drayton
Sh22 Sir Hugh Shirley d Shrewsbury b c 1345 a 1403, grand falconer
m Beatrix de Braose sister of John de Braose of West Neston d Shrewsbury b c 1330 a 1403, grand falconer
Sh21 Sir Hugh Shirley d Shrewsbury b c 1370 a 1403, grand falconer, Sheriff of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire b c 1370 a 1422
m1 Joan Basset b c ?1391 dau of->
Basset 4 shows her marriage to son Ralph. As the complier of the Shirley pedigree is more likely to have know which Shirley Joan married, but this does have to b checked. The date given for father's marriage favors guesstimating Hugh's to have been no earlier than 1370.
+1 Thomas Basset of Braylesford

m1 Margaret Gresley ne of the author's DNA matches does have a double Blunt ancestral line and others in the match group indicate that the matching DNA on chr 12 does come over the West/Shirley line of decent for them and the author.

Sh19. Ralph Shirley of Westneston Wiston b c 1440 continued above Visitation shows this Ralph as married also to Elizabeth, dau of Thomas Blount, with a note apparently provided The Harleian's Society's editor saying that she was "added, but in a like hand". On the basis that this looks like a repetition of his mother whose marriage to his father is mentioned in BP1934 we ignore this. However,.
