Families covered: Selwyn of King's Stanley, Selwyn of Stanley St. Leonards (Leonard Stanley)

Visitation (1623) start with John Selwyn of Sussex, shown as father of Roger of Sussex and Richard of Stanley St. Leonards (m. dau of William Harmer). Visitation (1682) shows that but also shows (in italics) William as their father (by Elizabeth) with sisters Alice & Agnes. 'Transactions' starts with the following William, probably brother of Richard of Frampton (last Abbot of Malmesbury), descended from John Selwyn "said to have come from Sussex" 1484-5. Their coats of arms supports the view that this family was connected to that shown on Selwyn1.
