  • Notes 
    • Knight of the shire for Lincolnshire, 1450-52.

      The identity of his wife is confused. Maddison's Lincolnshire Pedigrees, page 1056, under "Welby of Multon," says "Joan, probably dau. of John de Rochford; owned Rochford Manor, East Barsham, Norfolk, 1468-86." The Wallop Family reproduces this language.

      Maddison's Lincolnshire Pedigrees, page 1313, under "Welby of Gedney, Moulton, and Stirwould," says "Joan, dau. of .... Stynte (or Rochford), died 1488. M. I. Holbeach Church. ['Visitations of Lincoln 1562,' Agnes, dau. and heiress of Thomas Stynte.]" Note that despite Maddison's citation, we find no mention of anyone named Stynte in the actual 1562-4 Visitation of the County of Lincoln.

      Finally, the Welby pedigree on page 192 of Thomas Blore's 1811 History and Antiquities of the County of Rutland identifies Richard Welby's wife as "Anne, dau. and heir of Thomas Stynte", probably deriving this from The Visitation of the County of Rutland in the Year 1618-19 whose Welby pedigree says the same thing in precisely the same words.
