" & Margaret, wife of Edward Gage)."

This is incorrect; there's a source misprint. The Margaret Shelley who married Edward Gage was the daughter of JOHN Shelley of Michelgrave.

  • Sir William Shelley (1480?–1549) was an English judge.
  • Born about 1480, he was the eldest son of Sir John Shelley (died 3 Jan. 1526) and his wife Elizabeth (died 31 July 1513), daughter and heir of John de Michelgrove in the parish of Clapham, Sussex. Of the judge's six brothers, one, John, became a knight of the Order of St John, and was killed in defending Rhodes against the Ottoman Turks in 1522; from another, Edward, who is variously given as second, third, or fourth son, came the baronets of Castle Goring, Sussex (created 1806), and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the poet. The youngest brother, John Shelley, died in 1554. The settlement of an estate which he purchased on the dissolution of Sion Monastery led to the lawsuit known as ‘Shelley's case,’ and the decision known as the Rule in Shelley's Case. ....
  • In 1547 he was consulted by Henry VIII's executors about the provisions of his will. He died on 4 January 1549.[1]
  • Shelley married Alice (died 1536?), daughter of Sir Henry Belknap, grandson of Sir Robert de Bealknap of Knelle in the parish of Beckley, Sussex. By her he had four sons:
    • John (died 15 December 1550), father of William (not the same person as William Shelley of Hertford, also a prisoner in the Tower in 1580), who was attainted 15 December 1582 for complicity in Charles Paget's treasons, but not executed, and died 15 April 1597, being succeeded by his son John, created a baronet in 1611;
    • Sir Richard Shelley;
    • the third son, Sir James, was, like Sir Richard, a distinguished and widely travelled Knight of St. John;
    • the fourth, Sir Edward, was a master of the household of Henry VIII, treasurer of the council of the north, and captain of Berwick, and was killed at the battle of Pinkie on 10 September 1547.
    • Their daughter Elizabeth married Roger Copley, father of Sir Thomas Copley.[2]
