About Elizabeth Michelgrove

Elizabeth Michelgrove (daughter of John Michelgrove and Mary Sidney) was born Abt. 1458 in Clapham, Sussex, England, and died June 30, 1518 in Clapham, Sussex, England. She married John Shelley, son of John Shelley and Beatrice Hawkwood. John Shelley established the Shelleys as landed gentry in Sussex with his marriage to Elizabeth Michelgrove in 1474. Shelleys in Sussex were recorded in Rye in East Sussex in the early fourteenth century. A John Shelley was able, in 1474, to secure the marriage of Elizabeth Michelgrove and thereby bring the extensive Michelgrove estates near Arundel under his control. For three centuries thereafter, the Shelleys were landed gentry in Sussex, with various branches in West and East Sussex. The branch in East Sussex included the black sheep of the family, the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.
