      John, was the Vicar of Ilketshall St. Andrew and later nearby Beccles, both in the county of Suffolk.

      Leonard was the father of the Thomas Shardelow at Kessingland, he married Kimborowgh Edgar and had 6 children before he died in 1612. There is considerable evidence that it was his youngest son, John, who obtained a scholarship to Sidney College, Cambridge at the age of 13 and matriculated three years later, was ordained Deacon at Norwich and Vicar of Ilketshall St, Andrews, Suffolk in 1632. He was also Rector of Beccles, Suffolk although the date of this appointment is not known.

      Unfortunately the registers of Ilketshall St. Andrews for this period have been badly damaged and, in spite of conservation work done on them, large parts are illegible. One entry which can be read refers to " John Shardelowe the son of John Shardelowe and Maria his wife was baptised the 18 May 1638". This is signed John Shardelow, vicar.
