I got drawn in by my research on the Clowes of North Staffs from 1500 who spread worldwide. The Shelton word stumped me, and I believe from the census returns it should read Stratford on Avon - mother Catherine , who was widowed when he was young. At least two siblings. I think all these Clews come from the Clews family at Stafford from about 1533. In turn, the name is almost certainly a corruption of Clowes, as locally it has always been pronounced CLEWS.
