Edmund de Morton1

M, d. 1341
     Edmund de Morton was the son of Michael de Morton. Edmund de Morton married Ellen de Woodcote, daughter of Sir Robert de Woodcote I. In the year, 9 Edward II. (1316), by writ tested at Clipston on 5th March, Edmund de Morton is certified as one of the Lords of the township of Woodcote in the county of Salop. At a somewhat later date Edmund de Morton acquired the forfeited estate of Archibald Douglas in Wilbrighton, which was conceded to him by King Edward III. in the fourth year of his reign.2 Edmund de Morton died in 1341. A Writ of Diem clausit extremum upon the death of Edmund de Morton was issued in Westminster, 26 October, 15 Edw. III and the inquisition was held at Wylbrytton, before John Perton, the King's Escheator in the Counties of Stafford, etc., on the 6th November, 15 Edw. III.
The oath of Adam de Morton, John de Couley, Henry de Rok, William de Cotes, Thomas atte Tounesende, Henry de Wolaston, Adam Le Freynce, Robert de Stocton, John Le clerk, Robert de Orshlowe, John de Hayward, and William Besse, who say upon their oath that Edmund de Morton held in his demesne as of fee on the day of his death, one messuage, half a virgate of land, a certain wood, and one vivary at Wylbrytton, of the King in capite, by the service of 20 shillings by the year, to be rendered at the King's Exchequer by the hands of the Sheriff of Stafford. at the Terms of the Annunciation of the Blessed Mary and St. Michael by equal portions. And that the tenements are worth nothing by the year beyond the service aforesaid, because the tenements were not wont to pay more than 16 shillings by the year, before the same Edmund took the same tenements of the now Lord the King for 4 shillings by year more of increase. And there are no other profits there. And notwithstanding the said land lies uncultivated and in common and the buildings are ruinous.
They say also that the same Edmund de Morton held in his demesne as of fee, on the day of his death. one messuage and half a virgate of land with appurtenances in Wodecote of Master Henry de Percy, by the service of 40 pence by the year to be rendered at the Feast of St. Michael for all service. And the messuage is worth 12 pence. And the half virgate of land is worth 40 pence and no more, because the land is poor and sandy. They say also that John de Morton, son and heir of the aforesaid Edmund, is the next heir of the same Edmund, and he was of the age of 26 years at the Feast of Nativity of St. John the Baptist last past (June 24) In witness, etc.3

Michael de Morton1

M
     Michael de Morton was the son of Michael de Morton.2 Grazebrook says "I believe them to have been the same with the Moretons, of Moreton and Wilbrighton, in the County of Stafford, who were, descended, as I suppose, from that Hemming de Moreton who held Moreton under
William Fitzalan in 1166. Of this family, John de Moreton was Lord of Moreton in 9 Edw. II. (1315-16) and his son Edmund acquired the forfeited estate of Archibald Douglas in Wilbrighton, which was conceded to him by the King in 4 Edw. III. This Edmund de Moreton died in 1341. The writ of diem clausit extremum was issued on the 26th of October in that year, and the inquisition was held at Wylbrytton on 6th November following (Adam de Moreton being the foreman of the jury)"

     Ellen Mosley was baptised on 9 July 1587 at The Collegiate Church, Manchester.2 She was the daughter of Anthony Mosley and Alice Webster.1 Ellen Mosley married first Walter Nugent, son of Richard Nugent and Margaret Goldsmith, on 13 November 1606 at Manchester.2 Ellen Mosley married Henry Sewall, son of Henry Sewall and Margaret Grazebrook, after 16 December 1615 being the date that the Bishop of Chester granted a licence for them to be married at Ashton-on-Mersey, Cheshire or Didsbury, Lancashire.
(There is a discrepancy here, the notes in the Diary state that Henry was only married twice 1, Anne Hunt and 2, Ellen Nugent, the McClellan family tree clearly shows the earlier marriage, which is also noted by Duff p.13. This is an indication that the Henry who married in 1601 was from a different family).1,3
On 5 June 1638 Ellen Mosley and Henry Sewall were living in Ipswich, Massachusetts, when her husband Ellen was presented to the grand jury for beating her. This appears to be another example of the temper that his mother refered to in her will.1
