According to The Visitation of Shropshire (1564), the Medlicotts trace their ancestry back to an 11th century knight, Sir Roger de Meibron, who fathered three sons, Llewellyn, Kynnard, Hughe. The eldest styled himself Llewellyn de Modlicott and his line runs straight through the Middle Ages to Thomas Medlicott of Pontesbury who had lands at Haberly, Shropshire, in the time of Queen Elizabeth.
Thomas’s grandson James was born in London on 5th July 1596 and educated at the Merchant Taylor’s School. He was a common councillor for London’s Queenhithe Ward. In 1621 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Edmund Joyner of Newbury, Berkshire. He died in January 1663 and was buried at St Peters in London’s Billingsgate.
