(Vide infra, No. 8.) He appears as his father's successor in the fourth generation of the Sheldon pedigree in the Visitation of 1662, and was evidently the eldest son. Most of the other available information about him is derived from the following suit in Chancery, brought by his eldest son:
In 1553 Denys Sheldon, complainant, showed that over sixty years ago his father, Hugh Sheldon, married Parnell Bereforde, daughter of Denys Bereforde, on which marriage it was agreed between the said Hugh Sheldon and one John Bereforde that all of the lands of the said Hugh, after his death, should descend to the issue of the said Hugh by the said Parnell; and afterwards the said Hugh bought homes and lands in Monyash and Chelmorton, co. Derby, and Carleton, Co. Nottingham, to the yearly value of 20 marks [£13. 6s. 8d.]. The said Hugh and Parnell had issue the complainant, and afterwards the said Parnell died. Later the said Hugh married again, and had issue Hugh and Henry Sheldon. The said Hugh, the father, died, and left the said lands to his said sons Hugh and Henry, contrary to his first marriage contract. The evidences being in the hands of the said sons, Hugh and Henry, complainant has no redress in the common law, and prays for a summons in this Court. (Early Chancery Proceedings, bundle 1383.)

Derby, called Lowefield, to the use of his son John Scheldon and his heirs for ever. (Court Rolls of the Manor of High Peak Hundred, 41/423.) Probably this grant was in the nature of a marriage settlement on this younger son, to whose descendants this cottage passed for several generations. But John Sheldon also acquired property in Monyash, where he resided.
On 4 Oct., 6 Henry VIII [1514], John Sheldon of Monyash and Richard Sheldon, his brother, were each fined 2d. for brewing.

He appears as his father's successor in the fifth generation of the Sheldon pedigree in the Visitation of 1662.
He was a juror at manor courts held on 12 Apr., 17 Henry VIII (1526), 5 May, 22 Henry VIII [1530], 26 Sept., 23 Henry VIII [1531], and 28 Oct., 33 Henry VIII [1541]. (Court Rolls of the Manor of High Peak Hundred, 41 /428-430, 434.)

" HENRY, b. about 1500. He was assessed 40s. at Monyash in the subsidy of 35 Henry VIII [1543-44]. (Lay Subsidies, 91/143.) He is also mentioned in the Chancery suit brought by Dennis
Sheldon given above. He seems to have been at one time a large landholder in the parish of Bakewell, disposing of property there by a final concord made on the Octave of St. Michael, 2 and 3 Philip and Mary [6 Oct. 1555], between Richard Harper, gent., querent, and Henry Sheldon, deforciant concerning a mansion, garden and orchard, and 524 acres in Monyash, co. Derby, in consideration of £100, and also by a final concord made fifteen days after Easter, 2 and 3 Philip and Mary [20 Apr. 1556], between John Morgan, surgeon, querent, and Henry Sheldon, gent., deforciant of 12 dwelling houses, barns, gardens, orchards, and 4 tofs and 1,360 acres of various lands in Chelmorton Monyash, Longesdon, Over Haddon, Flagg, Buxton, and Ashford, all in the parish of Bakewell, co. Derby, in consideration of 200 marks. (Feet of Fines, Derbyshire, Michaelmas and Easter Terms, 2 and 3 Philip and Mary.) The later history of this Henry Sheldon has not been learned with certainty; but it scents almost certain that he was the father of Hugh Sheldon (1525-1577) of Stanton in Ellaston, co. Stafford (fifteen miles south from Monyash), the progenitor of the Sheldons of Ellaston.*"
*Hugh Sheldon, of Stanton in Elaston, co. Stafford, was born about 1525 and died at Stanton in 1577. He married 21 Oct. 1554 Dorothy Hurte, who was buried at Stanton 23 July 1580.
Roger Sheldon, of Stanton in Ellaston, gent., one of the five children of Hugh and Dorothy (Hurte) Sheldon, was baptised at Stanton 11 Aug. 1561, and died in 1638. He married 27 Nov. 1592 Helen Woodcocke, who was buried 18 Apr. 1631. In Sept. 1615 the attorney general of the Duchy of Lancaster, in behalf of the Crown, sued Sir Charles Cavendish, Knight, in regard to land tenures in Chelmorton, co. Derby. Among the witnesses for the defendant was Roger Sheldon of Stanton, co. Stafford. gent.. aged 54 years, who on 18 Sept. 1615 deposed that Henry Sheldon of Chelmorton had paid a chief rent to the Earl of Shrewsbury. (Depositions in Duchy of Lan- caster, 13 James I, no. 43.) It seems likely that the deponent was a grandson of Henry4 Sheldon (4. iii, of the pedigree given above).
The children of Roger and Helen (Woodcocke) Sheldon were: 1. Hugh. bapt. 12 Aug. 1593. 2. Ralph, bapt. 1 Aug. 1595: m. Mary ---, and had children. (1) Gilbert. bapt. 25 May 1627; (2) Joseph, bapt. 28 Dec. 1628. Lord Mayor of London in 1676: (3) Benjamin, bapt. 21 Feb.
