If ancestors were born in Shelton, Shrewsbury, where is the likely church they would be baptised in? I have checked St Chad, Julian & Mary.
Thanks Robert.

Hello Robert

What date and location are you looking for?

Historically the area was in the parish of Shrewsbury: St Chad.  Bicton was a Chapelry in St Chad's parish but became a separate parish in 1810 and was re-founded in 1853.  The register was included with St Chad's until 1853 after which Bicton had its own registers.

In addition there is the parish of Shelton and Oxon which was created in 1855, also from St Chad's.  The registers start from 1855 and 1856.

Hello Robert

Will you please give us the name(s) and year of birth of your ancestor(s) who were born at Shelton so we can work out what is going on.

With regard to your HULME ancestors in Shrewsbury, I have looked at them several times over the years but never found any connection to my own family who were farmers from Cheshire.
