Notes

At least two Richard Sheltons were having children baptised at Winslow in the 1650s. The only child specifically said to have a mother called Mary was Jane, bap. 8 Jan 1658/9. Richard may be the son of John Shelton bap. 17 Sep 1629, or the son of Robert bap. 10 May 1623. He was evidently a shoemaker who also did malting.

At the manor court on 18 May 1666, Richard Shelton mortgaged a messuage in his own occupation (except for "a garden plot" on the east side) to Benedict Gaudry of Whitchurch (Centre for Bucks Studies, BAS 376/22, no.13).

At the manor court on 18 Oct 1672, Thomas Clements of Hogson [=Hoggeston] yeoman sought admission according to a surrender made on 14 March 1671/2 by Richard Shelton, now deceased, to a messuage in Winslow with garden. To the use of Thomas Clements and William Stonnill of Putnam, Herts [=Puttenham near Tring], yeoman. William Stonnill sought admission through Thomas Clements his attorney. Seisin granted to Thomas and William. Rent 4d, fine 5s, heriot by composition 14s (Centre for Bucks Studies, BAS 376/22, no.27).
