About Judith Shatswell

In an article by David A. Macdonald titled "A New Look at the Corwin and Shatswell Families" in the Register (NEHGR) 150:180 (Apr 1996), he discusses a Chancery court proceeding in 1627 against the administrator of the estate of widow Judith Shatswell of Sibbertoft, Northhamptonshire, England, who had died more than a decade earlier. The document indicates that widow Judith Shatswell was the mother of these children:

  • John, b. c1597
  • Margaret, b. c1598, m. Matthew Curwen,
  • Theophilus, Sibyl, b. c1601, and
  • Mary, b. c1605.

Macdonald thinks that Theophilus was born between Margaret and Sibyl because of the order of their mention in the suit, and thinks the age given in the suit is wrong. The age would make him born c1608. There is no mention of a William Shatswell, although there is reference to "two of ye uncles and neere kinsemen". So it looks like we can say that Mary (Shatswell) (Webster) Emery was from Sibbertoft, and her mother was named Judith.
