    Robert Shelley perhaps came from Kent, England. He was known to have been on the good ship "Lion" in 1632. On 26 Sep 1636 at Scituate, he married Judith Garnet of Boston. In the same year, along with other colonists, they settled at Barnstable on Cape Cod. There were 3 children born to Robert and Judith between 1637 and 1642. We do not know the year of Judith's death. It seems likely that she may have lived for a considerable number of years after the birth of the 3rd child. In any event, Robert remarried before 1668, in which year there is a record indicating that his wife was Susanna. The first child of Robert and Susanna was born ca. 1662, so we can estimate the second marriage date as about 1660.

    According to the evidence presented by Edith Sumner, "names and circumstances point to the possibility that Susanna Shelley was the daughter of Elder Thomas Dimock." It is likely that she was born in Watertown or Hingham, where Elder Dimock had lived before moving to Barnstable. Shubael Dimock was one of the men who inventoried Robert Shelley's estate in 1692, a task often undertaken by relatives of a deceased.
