difficult to assign its proper place in the pedigree, which commences with

His son and heir, Edward Muckleston, esq. of Pen-y-lan, recorder of Oswestry, became possessed of the estate of Meriden, now Merrington, in the parish of Preston Gobalds, by his marriage (4th January, 1615) with Mary, daughter and heiress of Thomas Corbet, esq., by Sarah, his wife, sister and heiress of Thomas Colefoxe, esq. of Merrington.
