New Zealand
Richard Shelley Lived in Palmerston North, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand.

This profile is part of the Shelley Name Study.



About Me


I was born on the 10th of October 1994 in Palmerston North, Manawatu, New Zealand to Andrew Shelley and Angelene McBride.

Relocation Relocation

We lived in Palmerston North for about a year after I was born and then at some point in 1995 we moved onto Whitby, Porirua until somepoint in 1997. We then moved to Timberlea in Upper Hutt.


I have two brothers, one from my mother's first marriage, and the second from her more recent marriage

  1. James Shelley
  2. Daniel Stephens

Medical Issues

Since I was little, I have been subject to asthma attacks. For a time when I was heavy into swimming and hockey - the asthma issue had almost disappeared. However now, it still remains. I am grateful that I have not been hospitalized as a result of an asthma attack


Around about 2008 I started going to a pentecostal church. Around about the 14th of October 2012 during the same weekend as I celebrated my 18th birthday - I was baptised.

Talents and Work...


As far as sports are concerned, I have a degree of skill in most of them; I prefer archery, fencing, soccer, Hockey and cricket. I also have developed a swordsmanship form (which I have yet to formally name)

  • Professionally I am a qualified barista, bartender and waiter having studied (and worked) in the Hospitality industry of New Zealand for a time however this didn't work out.
  • Currently I am in the process of completing an I.T degree majoring in programming.
  • Although untrained professionally, I have acquired adequate skills in a number of the construction trades


Since I joined, I have found a few interesting nuggets of interesting information regarding who my forefathers are, and who some of more notable family members are. To me it is interesting to have found that I have a connection to a number of the US Presidents and 24 out of the 25 Magna Carta Barons. Slowly I have been discovering a growing list of soldiers in the Family both directly related and distantly related.

Maternal Ancestry

The main point of interest here is the Mosley surname associated with a percursing grandfather. As a result, I help Debi where I can with the Moseley One Name Study

Paternal Ancestry

Here I'm looking at the study associated with the Shelley surname as that is my surname and additionally interested to see where it traces back to (currently 17th century England) and also the Lock surname as that surname is attributed to one of my grandmothers (currently traced back to 18th century USA)

National Ancestry

I direct a subproject of the New Zealand Project which takes care of our politicians in regards to fully (or as close to fully) categorizing as we can.


  • First-hand information from myself...
  • Second-hand information from parents and grandparents


  • Campbell Braddock regarding the bones for the tables displayed in the linked free space profile pages - Thank You.


  1. I attempt to be prompt in replying to comments or Private Messages regarding profiles I manage or from a comment posted
  2. My priority is my degree, having said that, I will attempt to be as active as time allows
  3. I can and have made mistakes

Hi Richards,

I am the new Project Coordinator for the Profile Improvement part of the England Project. I just wanted to say “Hello” and let you know that you can contact me if there is anything that I can help you with. I live in Yorkshire, have been interested in family history for over 20 years, and have been on Wikitree since February 2017. I have become addicted to it and need a fix of sourcing, error correcting or bio writing every day so that I don’t get withdrawal symptoms. Thank you for all the work you do for the Project. I am looking forward to working with you.

Regards Joan

Hi Richard,

I was happy to see the profiles for Le Bailly de la Falaise family - they seem to be connecting a lot of people. Isn't seems the actual family name "Le Bailly" for this family, with La Falaise a property title tacked on later? (the "proper" name is usually the first one, and I'm not sure there is much published research available on this family). Isabelle
