Keeling of Sedgley (Descended from Gibbons)
Richard Keeling (second son of William Keeling and Eleanor Gibbons) of Summerhill, Kingwinsford and afterwards of Pedmore Hall, co. Worcester, the lease of which he purchased October 22nd, 1745, baptized at Sedgley, November 5th, 1688: buried at Kingwinsford, June 6th, 1766. Will dated May 20th 1766, proved in P.C.C.

Patience, daughter of John Hodgetts of Shutt End (She was baptized at Kinwinsford, August 16th, 1685, and buried there January 15th, 1772)

From the Collections of a History of Staffordshire (1889) William Salt
Mr. Keelinge sealed with a lion rampant holding in the fore-paws an escutcheon charged with a cross pattSe fi tehee, impaling a chevron charged with three crescents, being the firms [arms?] of the North Staffordshire Keelings impaling Hodgetts. I presume he was related to his namesake of Brierley who married Katherine Dudley , but I do not know how. He was the second son of William Keelinge of the Lodge, Sedgley, gent., by Eleanor (nee Gibbons) his wife and was baptised at Sedgley, 5th November, 1688. He married at Pattingham, 23rd September, 1710, Patience, daughter of John Hodgetts of Shutt End, sister of John and of the Rev. Thomas Hodgetts, Rector of Kingswinford. He was buried at Kingswinford, 6th June, 1766, " aged 77 " ; and she 18th January, 1772.

Mr. Richard Keelinge died possessed of a considerable estate both real and personal, which, after some litigation, was divided among his co-representatives the Dudleys, Homers, and Briscoes.
