The first mention of "weight" (village) of Shchelkovo is revealed in the writing - "Acts of the Russian State of 1505-1526". From one of these acts we learn that the owner of this village V.I.Homutov in 1522 transferred it according to the will to the Trinity - Sergiyeva to monastery. And a bit later the name "Shchelkovo" meets once again in "Pistsova to the book of the Moscow state of the 16th eyelid" from 1584 for 1586.
