  • Notes 
    • NAME: Alice Roberts Carter notes list "James Boyer Shelly" as the father of James Bowyer Shelley.

      DEATH & BURIAL: One IGI record lists deathdate as 10 Apr 1853. There is conflicting information in Ancestral File and the IGI, indicating James d. 31 Oct 1798 Ditton Priors, Shropshire and bur. 14 Apr 1853 Rock, Worcestershire.
