Walter Shelley sailed to the English colony at Jamestown, Virginia before 1619.
Walter Shelley was one of the original subscribers to the London Company. He was a member of the First Legislative Assembly in America and sat for Smith's Hundred when they met at Jamestown on July 30, 1619. His name appears on a monument to the first House of Burgesses which stands at Jamestown today.
Shelley died of fever in 1619, very shortly after the Assembly began.
