There were Keilways in Devon, Dorset and Gloucestershire and at Rockbourne, in southwestern Hampshire; Sir William Keilway was sheriff of Wiltshire in 1502 and other members of his family were sheriffs of Hampshire between 1519 and 1586. Robert Keilway, whose parentage is unknown, was presumably a younger son who settled in Salisbury. Like
