In the Multon (Moulton) Welby line were Roger Welby, High Sheriff, 1397, Richard Welby, M. P., Lincolnshire, 1422, Richard Welby, M. P., 1450-2, Richard Welby, High Sheriff, 1471, and M. P., 1472-7, Richard Welby, High Sheriff, 1487, and Thomas Welby, High Sheriff. 1491.

In the period preceding the Norman Conquest two officers appear at the head of the county organization. These are the earldorman or earl, and the scirgerefa, or sheriff.
The latter was more particularly the representative of the king. Alter the Conquest the sheriff became a purely royal officer (vice-comes or ballivus). He held an annual court (the Sheriff's court or leet) to which the vassals of the king were suitors, arranged the assessment of rates and was in fact the financial representative of the Crown within his district. He presided over the assembly which elected the knights of the Shire.
From Fuller's "Worthies," written in 1662, speaking of the office of High Sheriff, he says: "From King Edward III until our own remembrance, the principal gentry in every shire were deputed for that place, keeping great attendance and hospitality: so that as some transcripts hath for the fairness of their character not only evened but exceeded the original, the Vice-comes has pro tempore equalled the Court himself and greater Lords in the land for their magnificence."

In the early part of the 17th century the family lost prestige and declined, but later made peace with the Crown and one branch made a rapid rise once more in Royal favor and purchased back a part, at least, of their estates.

²With reference to the value of money at this period, Henry in his history  of Great Britain says that in the fifteenth century, three half pence would purchase as much of the necessaries of life as fifteen pence would do at the time he wrote, viz. 1780. Hence some estimate may be formed of the value of the numerous bequests to the Church, contained in this and in the other wills quoted.
