THE STAFFORD/STOWFORD/KELLAWAYS

OF DOLTON AND DOWLAND

STAFFORD/KELLAWAY FamiliesThe History of STAFFORD BARTON Stafford COA


Arms: Argent two glaziers nippers in saltire between four pears or - This is identical to the Kellaway/Callaway Arms

"Thomas son of William gave his younger son Philip, Stoford in Dolton late in the reign of Henry III (1216-1272)." Risdon's "Survey of Devon"


This tree has been continued beyond the medieval period so that the history of the family and the fate of Stafford Barton in Dolton, Devon can be traced.

The family left many monuments in the local churches which can be seen here. The Villages of Dolton, Dowland and Iddesleigh

Sir John Le White de Stouford is particularly difficult to place. His name and locations(he had property in Dowland) would suggest he is related to the
Stofford/Stafford/Kellaways. However some of his other property might suggest he descends from the Kayle family of Humphrey de Kayle.
I have placed him beside this tree without definite attachment until more evidence can be found.
