    The first of this family mentioned by Sir William Dugdale is Adam de Welles, who, in the 6th of Richard I [1195] paid 10 marks for adhering to John, Earl of Moreton, who at that time assumed more authority, during his brother's captivity, than he was afterwards able to justify. After this Adam came William de Welles, who, in the 9th of John [1208], gave 50 marks for one knight's fee in Grimsby, co. Lincoln, and was s. by another William de Welles.
