The American branch of the Shackelfords is generally believed to have descended from Baron Jacques-le-Forte, who was a nobleman in Normandy and an officer in the army of William the Conqueror, when he overran England in 1066. William the Conqueror granted him land, and this land became the ancestral seat of the family in Godalming Parish, Surry County, England (about 39 miles northwest of London) [actually SW]. The town was called Shackelford Village, but in 1620 it passed from the Shackelfords to the Earl of Middleton. (The name appears in old records with the spelling "Shackleford" as well as "Shackelford.")

Henry de Shackelford was a Gentleman in Waiting for Henry V circa 1390. William de Shackelford was a descendant of Henry. He joined the Huguenots in 1550 and moved to France, where he was in the army of Navarre (1553-1610). He later left France and settled in the Netherlands, where he and his wife (name not known) died. His son (name not known) returned to England, where he joined the army of Charles I (1600-1649). (Information provided by: J. D. Brittingham
