The Family of Medlicott

The Family of Medlicott

This is an account of Medlicott family history as largely recorded by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott up to 1916 and completed by his son Colonel Henry Edward Medlicott, who presented nine copies of the document to other members of the Medlicott family in 1938. There are 12 sections in the original account and a “Supplement” added in 1985: 1. I (a) Introduction by Colonel Henry Edward Medlicott. 2. I (b) Preface by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott (1841 - 1916) 3. II "Medlicott" by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott 4. III Letter from William Medlicott (1862 - 1930) to H.E. Medlicott 5. IV Note on Medlicott by William Medlicott 6. V References to Accompanying Pedigree of the Descendents of John Medlicott of Medlicott, Co. Salop, (d. 1592) by William Medlicott 7. VI Pedigree and Notes on the Family of Medlicott of Dunmurry (1-40) - Compiled from Glascott's Pedigree and from material collected by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott 8. VI Pedigree and Notes on the Family of Medlicott of Dunmurry (41-75A) - Compiled from Glascott's Pedigree and from material collected by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott 9. VII Lieutenant H.W. Medlicott (1895 - 1918). Some details of his adventures in the Great War collected from various sources 10. VIII A visit to Medlicott by Colonel Henry Edward Medlicott 11. X Collateral Branches of the Family by Henry Edmondstone MedlicottHeraldry of the Family by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott 12. XI Sundry Occurrences of the Name of Medlicott by Henry Edmondstone Medlicott 13. XII Family of Medlicott. Articles reproduced from the Centenary Edition of Burke's Landed Gentry 14. Supplement by Ronald Medlicott Henry Edmondstone Medlicott died in 1916 and I am indebted to Katie Morris of California who came across this picture of Henry Edmondstone Medlicott while carrying out research into the Scriven branch of the family. The picture was taken in 1868 by Montreal photographers Notman, while on a visit to Canada and the United States. At that time his cousin, Joseph Medlicott Scriven, was living at Port Hope, Ontario, Canada. Further details of Henry Edmondstone Medlicott are given in the section covering the Dunmurry branch of the family under item 57. His son, Col HE Medlicott had a very distinguised career and died in 1948. In 1985, Ronald Medlicott, the son of Henry Edward Medlicott, produced the “Supplement” to “The Family of Medlicott”, which both expands upon and provides clarification to the information given in the original publication. This includes the background to the revision given in the 1976 Burke's Irish Family Records with regards the parentage of George Medlicott of Tully, founder of the Dunmurry branch of the family, which is different to that previously decribed in the 1900 Centenary Edition of Burke's Landed Gentry. The Supplement also provides more details about Colonel Henry Edward Medlicott. My family did not receive a copy of the supplement when it was issued so I was never quite sure if the copy I came across was completely accurate and complete. I was therefore very grateful when I received an email from George Bird, a first cousin of Ronald Medlicott with whom he had discussed the supplement several times, who was able to confirm the authenticity of the contents. With regards to the Irish connection and George Medlicott of Tully, the Supplement describes how Mervyn Medlycott established that George was not a brother of Thomas of Binfield, from whom the Rocketts Castle line is descended. Instead, he suggests that George Medlicott was the product of the marriage between James Medlicott of Stockwell and Ashstead and Frances Culpeper, a cousin of the 1st Lord Culpeper. An inspection of the Culpepper Family Tree confirms that Frances Culpepper was indeed the first cousin of John, 1st. Lord Culpeper and that she did indeed marry a Medlicott, although the Culpepper family tree refers to him as James Medlicote of Feckenham, Co. Worc. The date of the marriage between James and Frances held in Feckenham is 7 January 1626, the same as that identified by Mr Mervyn T. Medlycott for James Medlicott, of Ashtead, Surrey. Hence it is likely that they are the same person. The Culpepper Family Tree does not identify any children by James and Frances, but this does not mean there were no children, since often only the children from the male line were identified who could carry on the family (i.e. Culpepper) name. The Supplement also gives further information about the possible relationship of George Medlicott of Tully with Lord Ossory who lived from 1634 to 16880) and was an Irish nobleman;, the son of James Butler, 12th earl and 1st duke of Ormonde.
