About John de Shelton

Notes: 13th Lord of Shelton was Knighted of Shire of Cumberland. 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 De Shelton 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assigned to Margaret, widow of John De Shelton was removed from her hands, as the King had learned that she had long withdrawn from her husband to be with her paramour and since she was never reconciled with him, should have no dower.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.
