Genealogy of the Sheldon Family
 

The Sheldons of Beoley

The Bigland Sheldon Pedigree is a large handwritten document (3 feet by 20 feet) completed 200 years ago by Ralph Bigland of the College of Arms. It is held at the Warwick County Record Office and this is a complete transcription of its contents.

There will be some errors and in some places the names are difficult to read, however it is 99% accurate (a bold claim from a genealogical transcriber).


In the book about the Sheldons by E.A.B. Barnard he notes (page 104) "Mrs Warriner of Weston Park possesses a very full Sheldon pedigree made by Ralph Bigland in 1808." Presumably she gifted it to the Warwick County library where it is stored under the reference HR/91.
