The other early Walsh possessions in England were in Worcester, at Abberley and Sheldesly (Shelsley), and branches of this family were also apparent in Warwickshire. In The Heraldry of Worcestershire (by Henry Sydney Grazebrook), the family is described of Shelsely, Abberley, Redmarley, and Stockton (Warwickshire); and of Walsh Hall, in Meriden (Warwickshire). The Worcester history appears to start with a Johannes Walensis who held lands in Shelsley circa 1211. Henry le Waleys held half a fee in Sheldesleye in 1287. Henry le Waleys held the hamlet of Scheldesleghe in 1 Edward II (1307-08). Descendants of Henry's family included Thomas Walsh, chief baron of the exchequer, who went to Ireland in Henry VIII's time. His brother Walter (Welshe) was of Henry VII's household, and it was he who arrested Cardinal Wolsey. William Walsh (1663-1708) the poet-critic, and friend of Alexander Pope, was of the same family. One may suspect that Thomas Walsh installed some of his family in Ireland (he had no sons) as all other important English officials did. The arms of the family, attributed to Henry Walsh in the time of Henry III, are the same as those of Walsh of Ballykilcavan in Queens County Ireland, as well as Philip of Wigorn (Worcester), "a fess between six martlets".
[source: Walsh 1170-1690; by J.C. Walsh]
In 1086 the area was included in the lands of Osbern Fitz Richard of Richards Castle. At this time the manor contained a Fishery rendering 16 " Stitches" of Eels. The Walshes, (from whom the hamlet takes its name) first appear in 1211-12 (RBE) when John Walensis (called le Waleys in 1235) was holding half a fee in Shelsley. St. Andrews church nestles here under high wooded hills, surrounded by orchards and black and white cottages. Access is up the private conifer lined drive to the Court House. A small, mainly 12th century church is built of travertine, quarried from nearby Southstone Rock. The interior is one of the most beautiful in all of Worcestershire. The nave and chancel are divided by a 15th century oak screen that cannot be bettered anywhere in the county. A major restoration was done in 1859 by the London-based architect George Truefitt. By 1908, most of Truefitt's work had been removed or destroyed for which no explanation can be found. In 1975 a report suggested further restoration work was needed. It was completed by 1980. Roof timbers are quite an impressive feature of the church, while the plank ceiling of the chancel is decorated with painted gold stars. In the corner of the Sanctuary is a rare wooden tomb to Sir Francis Walsh who died in 1596. The panels are painted with the Walsh Coat of Arms. Today, perhaps Shelsley Walsh's main claim to fame lies with the famous hill climb.
In "The heraldry of Worcestershire", by Henry Sydney Grazebrook, he cites the first Walsh, of Shelsley, appears to have been Sir Henry le Waleys, who flourished in the reign of Edward I., and was patron of the church in 1300. Next occurs William, in 1313; and Henry, in 1333. John Walsh, of Shelsley-Walsh, grandson of Henry, married temp. Henry VI., Joan, daughter and heiress of John Wyard, of Aspath, co. Warwick, and was grandfather of John Walsh, of Shelsley, who by Margaret, his wife, daughter of John Blount, of Sodington, had four sons : John, of Shelsley; Thomas Walsh, Baron of the Exchequer (whose son Thomas was lord of Stockton); Edwin Walsh, rector of Holt; and Walter Walsh, ancestor of the Abberley branch. John Walsh, of Shelsley, the eldest son (above), had issue a son Francis, who was of Shelsley at the Visitation of 1569, and then had an eldest son, Richard, aged twelve. This Richard, who was afterwards knighted, was the last Walsh of Shelsley; he was lord of Aspath (now called Meriden), co. Warwick. and high Sheriff of Worcestershire at he time of the Gunpowder Plot. By Katherine, his wife, daughter of Sire Thomas Porter, he had issue two daughters and co-heiresses, viz., Anne, married to Sir Thomas Bromley, of Holt; and Joice, wife of Sir Roland Cotton, of Bellaport. Walter Walsh, the youngest son of John and Margaret, was Groom of the Privy Chamber to King Henry VIII., and twice served the office of Sheriff of Worcestershire. To him the king granted the manor of Abberley. He had issue Walter Walsh, whose son, Sir William Walsh, dying without issue, left Abberley to William Walsh, the son of his brother Walter, whose son Joseph was aged "about sixteen" at the Visitation of 1634, and died in 1682, aged sixty-three, having had issue William Walsh, the once celebrated poet and critic, on whose death, without issue, in 1707, the Abberley estates passed to his sister and co-heiress, Anne, wife of Francis Bromley (younger son of Henry Bromley, and grandson of Sir Thomas Bromley who married the co-heiress of Walsh, of Shelsley).
A pedigree of the Walsh family was recorded at the Visitations (of Worcestershire) in 1569, 1634, and 1682-3.

[source: The Parliamentary History of the County of Worcester; by William Retlaw Williams]
Henry VII, the victor of the Battle of Bosworth and the first of the Tudors seized Abberley as a royal possession. His son, Henry VIII, granted Abberley to his Groom of the King's Chamber, Walter Walsh whose family lived at nearby Shelsley. Walter Walshe was sheriff of Worcestershire at his death by March 1538. Among his holdings included the lordship of Abberley, and lordship in Grafton Fleforde, and tenements (parks) at Elmley Castle, Busheley, Shewdley and Wygmore.
The Walshes held Abberley for over 175 years, but not without interruption. Queen Elizabeth I took it away to give to a favourite, but after a law suit it was restored to the Walshes. Joseph Walsh fought on the Royalist side at the Battle of Worcester on September 3rd, 1651 and later suffered imprisonment for his loyalty to the Crown. In the 18th century, Abberley Manor has some literary connections. It was visited by the poet Pope, and also by Joseph Addison who often stayed there. A walk lined with yews behind the present building is still known as 'Addison's Walk'.
The Poet Willliam Walsh
William Walsh (1663-1708), the son of Joseph Walsh, Esq., of Abberley in Worcestershire, was born in 1663, as appears from the account of Wood, who relates that at the age of fifteen he became, in 1678, a gentleman commoner of Wadham College.
He left the university without a degree, and pursued his studies in London and at home; that he studied, in whatever place, is apparent from the effect, for he became, in Mr. Dryden's opinion, 'the best critick in the nation.'
He was not, however, merely a critick or a scholar, but a man of fashion, and, as Dennis remarks, ostentatiously splendid in his dress. He was likewise a member of parliament and a courtier, knight of the shire for his native county in several parliaments; in another the representative of Richmond in Yorkshire; and gentleman of the horse to Queen Anne under the duke of Somerset.
Some of his verses shew him to have been a zealous friend to the Revolution; but his political ardour did not abate his reverence or kindness for Dryden, to whom he gave a Dissertation on Virgil's Pastorals, in which, however studied, he discovers some ignorance of the laws of French versification.
In 1705 he began to correspond with Mr. Pope, in whom he discovered very early the power of poetry. Their letters are written upon the pastoral comedy of the Italians, and those pastorals which Pope was then preparing to publish.
The kindnesses which are first experienced are seldom forgotten. Pope always retained a grateful memory of Walsh's notice, and mentioned him in one of his latter pieces among those that had encouraged his juvenile studies:
'Granville the polite,
And knowing Walsh, would tell me I could write.'
In his Essay on Criticism he had given him more splendid praise, and, in the opinion of his learned commentator, sacrificed a little of his judgement to his gratitude.
The time of his death I have not learned. It must have happened between 1707, when he wrote to Pope, and 1711, when Pope praised him in his Essay. The epitaph makes him forty-six years old: if Wood's account be right, he died in 1709.
He is known more by his familiarity with greater men, than by anything done or written by himself.
His works are not numerous. In prose he wrote Eugenia, a Defence of Women, which Dryden honoured with a Preface. Æsculapius, or the Hospital of Fools, published after his death. A collection of Letters and Poems, amorous and gallant, was published in the volumes called Dryden's Miscellany, and some other occasional pieces.
To his Poems and Letters is prefixed a very judicious preface upon Epistolary Composition and Amorous Poetry.
In his Golden Age Restored, there was something of humour, while the facts were recent; but it now strikes no longer. In his imitation of Horace, the first stanzas are happily turned; and in all his writings there are pleasing passages. He has however more elegance than vigour, and seldom rises higher than to be pretty.

St. Andrew's Church, Stockton
In the parish of Teme Valley North, Diocese of Worcester, is Stockton Church, dedicated to St. Andrew, dating back to about 1100 A.D. In the church rests the beautiful wooden tomb of Thomas Walshe (1593). Thomas Walsh's father was chancellor to Henry VIII.
In The Visitation of the County of Worcester, 1682-83, is a pedigree for Walshe of Stockton, which begins with John Walsh and his wife Elizabeth Blount. The pedigree focuses on a Richard Walshe, Priest, Rector of Holt, co. Worc., temp. Edward VI (1547-1553). The arms of this branch are given as "Argent a fess between six martlets Sable, a mullet for difference."
