The manor of Modlicott or Medlicott was in the parish of Wentnor in co. Salop (Shropshire).
Sir Roger de Meldron (a c1200)
1. Llewellyn de Modlicott
  BLG1952 reports that Llewellyn was ancestor not only of the later Medlicotts of Medlicott, reported in the section below, but also of the Medlicotts of Dunmuury and of those of Ven House. It refers to the work of Col. H.E. Medlicott of which we found a copy of online as reported below.
  A. Leonard de Modlicott
  i. Kenarde de Modlicott
  a. Eynian de Modlicott
  (1) Llewellyn de Modlicott
Wholly arbitrarily, we speculate that this was the generation from which branched the line that eventually led to the Medlicotts of Dunmurry from the senior line of Medlicott of Medlicott. BLG1952 indicates that some of the lands held by the above "are still in possession of the family" so we presume that the family reported in BLG1952 as 'Medlicott of Medlicott' was indeed descended from this senior line.
  (A) ?? de Modlicott or Medlicott
  Uncertain on number of intervening generations.
  (i) ?? Medlicott of Medlicott
  (a) John Medlicott of Medlicott (d 1592) - continued below
  m. Eleanor Thin (dau of William Thin of Botefield)
  (b) Edward Medlicott of Moorhouse, Wentnor
  ((1)) Thomas Medlicott of Moorhouse
  (B) Medino de Modlicott
  (i) Hugo de Modlicott of Whitley Hill
  m. Alice Dodd (dau of John Dodd)
  (a) John de Modlicott (2nd son?)
  m. _ Vernon (dau of John Vernon)
  ((1)) Richard Modlicott
m. Jane Boycott (dau of _ Boycott of Eye (Edge?))
  ((A)) Thomas Modlicott
  m. Joane Whitgone (bur 21.04.1577?, dau of William Whitgone of Beswick)
  See note just below.
  ((B)) Thomas Modlicott 'of Shrewsbury?' (2nd of the name)
  H.E.M. shows that this Thomas had issue but confuses the tree with a possibility of those children being the children of a Bartholomew (1586-1626) son of a Thomas of Harwood (bur 17.02.1614) with that Thomas being shown underneath but not actually connected to the Thomas above who m. Joane Whitgone. It may be that the matter is clarified within the text but a brief attempt to obtain clarification was not successful so this has been left as something to investigate further in due course. [Note. There is no obvious overlap between the issue shown for this Thomas (or the above-mentioned Bartholomew) with the issue found for the below-mentioned Thomas of Longden.]
  m. Jane Mitton (bur 29.08.1585, dau of Sir Adam Mitton)
  ((C)) Eliza Modlicott
  m. Hugh Willcocks
  ((2)) John Medlicott (a 1569)
  m. _ Lecke of London
  ((A)) William Modlicott of Shrewsbury (a 1628)
  m. (11.12.1587) Eliza Prowd (bur 1604, dau of George Prowd)
((i))+ issue - John (bpt 1577), Mary Martha, Judith
  The following connection is speculative & presumptious! However, BIFR1976, which supports the above descent to the John de Modlicott who m. a dau of John Vernon, reports "it is from this line that the family we treat claims descent" and then notes "For further details see The Family of Medlicott by Col Henry Edward Medlicott" which we have done (and have used for this page). However, despite a brief look at that work, we have yet to find clarification as to exactly how the following Thomas (shown by BIFR1976 as the earliest connected ancestor of the later generations) was descended from the afore-mentioned John de Modlicott and there are not many alternative generations that he could have been of. This has been left as something to investigate further in due course.
