The family of CHARLTON* is of very ancient extraction,

Sir Alan CHARLTON, knt. of Appley Castle, in the county of Salop, had issue,

1. John (Sir), who m. Hawise, daughter

and heiress of Owen ap Gryffith, the
last Prince of Powys, and in her right
acquired the feudal barony of Pole,
held in capite from the crown; but
in the next year, Gryffin de la Pole,
uncle to the said Hawise, pretending
a right to the castle of Pole, (after-

wards called Red Castle), raised
a body of the Welsh, and regu-
larly besieged it, his niece and her
husband being at that time residing
therein ; whereupon the king directed
his precept to Roger de Mortimer,
then justice of Wales, to march
thither for their relief and protection.
Again, however, they were disturbed
by the said Gryffin, who had summons
to appear before the king, to answer
for his proceedings: and to render
John Charlton and his wife more
secure in their title, they had a royal
charter in the 7th of EDWARD II. con-
firmatory of all their lands and castles
in North Wales, South Wales, and
Powys; in which year (26th July,
1313) John Charlton was summoned
to parliament as BARON CHARLTON,
and from that period to 25th July,
1353. His lordship was subsequently
Justice of Ireland, and dying in 1353,
was s. by his son,
JOHN DE CHARLTON, second baron,
who was s. by his son,
John De CHARLTON,third baron,

who was s. by his brother, EDWARD de Charlton, fourth

baron,who leaving daughters only, the title is supposed to have fallen into ABEYANCE, as it still continues. (See

Among its distinguished members we may enumerate Lud Charlton, bishop of Hereford ; George Charlton, bishop of Landaff; and Guy Charlton, bishop of Chiebester.
