4 Walters Brothers At Battle of Hastings 1066
Migrate From Devon To Southern Wales

As cited by Patty Bergman "From the Dictionary of American Family Names, by Elsdon C.Smith, we find that Walter "rule army" was introduced by the Normans into England at the time of the Conquest. "Walter Giffard, Lord of Longueville was a cousin of the conqueror and feudal barony of Long Crendon, comprising 107 manors, 48 of which were in Buckinghamshire,[14] of which the caput was at Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire."

In the book, THE WALTERS FAMILY, by the American Genealogical Research Institute, we see that: The "Walters were once only a few men serving in William the Conqueror's army. They had not yet founded their own families and were simply young knights whose swords had earned them a fief of land on the coast of Devon, England, in a place called Biddeford. Biddeford, though not much more than a village in the twelfth century, had a port that was the departure point of ships bound around Cornwall for the Irish Sea and trade with Wales and the Celts of Ireland."

"When the first Walters were mature men with grown sons, about the 1087, there was a prince in Wales who went to war with another Welsh prince and was badly in need of men skilled in the arts of war. One of the young vassals of the rebel Welsh prince offered to hire the Normans of Devon to fight for his Lord in exchange for gold. So the Norman knights of Devon were hired as mercenaries to bolster the army of rebellion in Wales. Among these Devon Normans were the Walters, a second generation of eager young swords intent on following their fathers'example by winning their fortunes in combat." continued opposite panel

"The Welsh rebellion was a success thanks to the Norman fighters from beyond the sea, and the young vassal of the conquering prince of Wales expected to be rewarded for his efforts. His hiring of the Norman mercenaries had turned the tide of battle. When the vassal approached the Welsh prince and asked for land, gold, and the hand of the prince's daughter in marriage, the prince actually laughed in his face. In rage the vassal rode to were the Normans were preparing to board their ships. Already paid, they planned to return to their homes in Devon. The Welsh vassal called them to council." "The vassal, a baron, had paid the Normans in gold, but now he offered them a second employment.

"He told them how the prince had scorned him, and implied that the prince scorned the Normans as well. The vassal said, "Let us return with our swords and take from the prince what he was only able to take by rebellion with our help. "Let us make ourselves lords of his lands and despoil him." The Normans, after consideration, saw how easy it would be to achieve the conquest of southern Wales and they agreed. they left their ships and while the Welsh prince was still celebrating his victory, they marched upon him and seized the kingdom he had not even yet begun to rule. Then the Normans, with a laugh, gave the Welsh vassal all the mountainous land of little value and kept the rich valleys for themselves. The Walters of Devon, Monmouthsire, and South Wales then grew to become a wealthy family with many descendants.....

Normal Warrior Inherits Lands for Services To Norman the Conqueror
Walter of Douai (Old Norman: Wautier de Douai) (born c.1046, died: c.1107) was a Norman knight, probably at the Battle of Hastings, and a major landowner in South West England after the Norman Conquest,[1] being feudal baron of Bampton in Devon and of Castle Cary in Somerset. He is given various names and titles in different sources including: Walter (or Walschin or Walscin) de Douai. Douai is sometimes written as Dowai. He has also been called Gautier de Douai and later Walter the Fleming.

He married Emma (or Eddeva)[3] of Devon, and may have had two children Richilde de Douai and Ralph (of Tintinhull) Lovel. He also had a second wife.[4] His son Robert built Bampton Castle in Devon.[5]
Family
Walter was the son of Urso of Douai, that was then a fiefdom of the counts of Flanders and now is a commune in the Nord département in northern France. Located on the river Scarpe some 40 km from Lille and 25 km from Arras. He may have had two brothers Fouque and Goselin, who also fought at the Battle of Hastings and another brother Hugh who did not come to England. He married Emma (or Eddeva) of Devon, and may have had two children Richilde de Douai and Ralph (of Tintinhull) Lovel. He also had a second wife. His son Robert built Bampton Castle in Devon.

NORMAN CONQUEST
In 1066 the Normans invaded south-east England, defeating the English forces at the Battle of Hastings. Walter in all probability fought at Hastings, yet he is not one of the proven Companions of William the Conqueror, as he was not recorded as having been such by contemporary chroniclers, who made notice of only 15 out of the many hundreds there.

In the aftermath of the victory, William the Conqueror entrusted the conquest of the south-west of England to his half-brother Robert of Mortain. Expecting stiff resistance, Robert marched west into Somerset, supported by forces under Walter of Douai, who entered from the north; a third force, under the command of William de Moyon, landed by sea along the Somerset coast.

POST CONQUEST
Following the defeat of the Saxons by the Normans in 1066, various castles were set up in Somerset by the new lords such as that at Dunster, and the manors were awarded to followers of William the Conqueror such as William de Moyon and Walter of Douai. Walter of Douai was feudal baron of Bampton in Devon and of Castle Cary in Somerset.

After the Norman invasion the land on which Bridgwater stands was given to Walter of Douai, hence becoming known variously as Burgh-Walter, Brugg-Walter and Brigg-Walter, eventually corrupted to Bridgwater. An alternative version is that it derives from "Bridge of Walter" (i.e. Walter's Bridge).

Cary Castle, a motte and bailey castle was built either by Walter of Douai or by his son Robert who also built Bampton Castle in Devon. He was also holder of the land on which Cockroad Wood Castle was built.

Doomsday Book
List of Lands Owned and Fees
The Domesday Book of 1086 lists Baentone as one of the 27 Devon holdings of Walter of Douai, also known therein as Walscin.[2] Walter was also feudal baron of Castle Cary in Somerset.[3] At Bampton he established a castle,[4] the motte of which survives today. The manor was a very large holding of 76 households,[5] and previously to the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 had been held in demesne by King Edward the Confessor. As a manor in the royal demesne it had paid no tax.[a] Walter had obtained it from William the Conqueror in exchange for the manors previously granted to him of Ermington and Blackawton.[6]

According to the Book of Fees[7] the member manors of the barony of Bampton included: Duvale, Hele (possibly Hele, Clayhanger),[8] Doddiscombe, Hockworthy, Havekareland (possibly Hawkerland, Colaton Raleigh) [6] and Legh (Lea Barton, Hockworthy).[6] Walter held the manor of Bampton in demesne, but nevertheless he had three tenants who held land somewhere within the manor, namely two men named Rademar, one of whom appears to have been a tenant of several of Walter's Somerset manors.[9] One may possibly have been Rademar the Clerk, Walter's brother.[10] The third tenant was Gerard, thought to have been Walter's steward and his tenant at Bratton Seymour in Somerset.[10] The descent from Walter of Douai was as follows:[11]

Robert of Douai (son), who in 1136 rebelled against King Stephen, when his lands passed to his daughter and heiress Juliana. Juliana of Douai, who married as her first husband Fulk Paynel (died c. 1165)

Walter of Roch Castle.
By FRANCIS GREEN
According to Lewis Dwnn the Walter family of Roch Castle and Rhosmarket, Perns., were descendants of an Englishman named John Walter, who emigrated to South Wales in the early part of the 16th century. This John Walter is described as a gentleman, and as the son of John Walter, otherwise ' Chwoms '-probably the pho­netic spelling of ' Holmes ' by the Welsh deputy-herald- who is said to have been a descendant of Sir Richard ap Sir William Koms of Colchester, Kent. With a view of testing the accuracy of Lewis Dwnn in regard to the origin of the famity, the writer some years ago searched for a family of Holmes in the county of Essex, but without success.

But while no sept of the Holmes could be found there, he discovered in the Harleian MSS. two pedigrees of a family which had taken the name of Walter. This family resided at Rokewell, in Essex, and curiously enough the ancester was said to have emigrated to Essex from Crickhowell in Wales ; another pedigree was of a family named Walter, which derived its ancestry from an English source, and it is a coincidence that not only did each of these pedigrees contain Christian names, which are found amongst the Walters of Roch Castle, but also the feminine name ' Thomasine' which was introduced into the Pembrokeshire family by a marriage at the end of the ijth century. From the information available at present, however, there is no proof of any connection between the Essex families referred to and that of Roch Castle. [West Wales Historical Records, V:271]

John Walter, after arriving in Pembrokeshire, married, according to Lewis Dwnn, Vol. I., p. 228; Alson, the daugh­ter of William Mendus, who lived at Fishguard (Cheetham MSS.), but a pedigree amongst the Papers of the Great Sessions states that she was the daughter of Thomas Mendus. There can be little doubt that this John Walter was the person of that name who, prior to 1509, held the appointment of approver and chancellor of the county and lordships of Pembroke and West Haverford, and was succeeded in those offices on 18 May, 1509, by Griffith Rede (Patent Rolls). This entry explains the reason for his coming to Pembrokeshire. The issue from his marriage to Alson Mendus was as follows:

..........3. Anne Walter, b. Abt 1530,of, Hwlffordd, Pembrokeshire, Wales
............ OFFICE: Prior to 1509 held the appointment of approver and chancellor of
........... the county and lordships of Pembroke West Haverford; he was succeeded in these

Castle Roch was founded in the 2nd half of the 13th century, although the lordship de Rupe (rock) can be traced back to about 1200. An earlier fortress may have existed here, but the prominent D-shaped tower on this isolated rocky outcrop is thought to have been built by Adam de Rupe. The de Rupe, or Roche, family came to an end in 1420 and the castle changed ownership a number of times until it came into the possession of the Walter family, who owned it when the Civil War broke out in 1642.

Dear Chris Walters

Revd Alun Evans has passed on your email to me as I have some knowledge of the history of St Mary's, Haverfordwest, parish. We certainly have a very significant tomb of William Walter in the chancel of the church. he died on 18 June 1614 aged 70. Described as an Alderman of the town, he was Sheriff in 1578 and mayor in 1581, 1592 and 1597.

Have a look at our website www.stmaryshaverfordwest.org.uk

Lucy Walter of the Walter(s) family might have been involved in the history of King Charles II; see http://www.cenquest.co.uk/Bas%20Peeps/LucyWalter.htm

Please let me know if I can help further.

Although Walter saw out the war in the safety of London, his castle was garrisoned by the Royalists, and it was involved in much action in 1644 when it was taken by Parliamentarians, recaptured by the Royalists, and then fell once again to Cromwell's forces. Walter did not return to Roch Castle, going instead to Hague, but his daughter Lucy stayed in London and became the mistress of Charles II. Their son was acknowledged by Charles, who made him Duke of Monmouth - the doomed leader of the rebellion against James II.

That William Walters and possibly some of his relatives fled to Holland and then to South Carolina was the subject of extensive research by Patricia Ann Bergman Retired Teacher Columbus,Ohio (D-2016) making extensive use of the Old Walters Family Bible owned by Lori Walters (Lampkins Durham NC)(DAR Collection DC) and Katy Walters

In times of persecution and flight it is understandable that people may change their names or other identifying elements to avoid further problems after being run out of Wales. Depending on which authority a person cites there are at least 3 William Waters/Walters who left for the new world about the same time and which one is which remains to be determined.

Biography Lucy Alleyne
Lucy Alleyne was the 6th child and 3rd daughter of Col Abell Alleyne of Barbados. She was born in Barbados, and was probably about 15 years old when she married John Walter.Lucy's first 2 children, both males, died young. She also had 2 daughters who died before they reached adulthood, as they are not mentioned in their father's will. Her other 11 children were born between 1701 and 1727. Lucy lived most of her adult years in Surrey in England. She died at the age of about 61 and was buried at the St Peters Church in Old Woking, Surrey

Mention of Walters Family Bible
William had a family Bible in which the birthdates of four sons is recorded. The Bible then picks up with Elijah's family. There is a possibility that William had a daughter born about 1786. On 27 Mar 1847, Moses and Elijah, who were sons of William, nd a Mary Ann Walter transferred some land to John Walters. (John was the oldest son of John Walters and Sara Hudson.) This evidently was Walters land to which all were heirs. (See Historical Southern Families - Mrs. John Bennett Boddie - 1971.) J. Durant Walters, deceased, formerly of Charlotte wrote a book about the Walters Family. There is a Walters Family file in the Monroe, NC Library that contains many notes and documents of the late Col. Louis E. Hicks.

Crowfield Planation

Sold To Pay Estate Debts
William Cantell Last Will
The South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine: Volume 20:

The title was evidently made and William Cattell must have transferred the place to his son in law William Walter who had married his daughter Mary. The tract is not referred to in William Cattell's will, and in a deed of that date of a tract bounding on this tract, it is stated as belonging to William Walter. William Walter was the same William Walter who was the owner of the neighbouring Wampee plantation.

He seems to have been a man of considerable means and was also the owner of the well known Crowfield plantation in the parish of St. James Goose Creek, which he purchased in 1754 from William Middleton. William Walter died in 1766 and by his will directed certain lands in cluding his plantation on the south side of Ashley River to be sold, and later proceedings were instituted for the settlement of his estate, and on 19 August, 1778 the Master in Chancery advertised for sale several tracts of land belonging to the estate of William Walter deceased, including the plantation called Jacksons containing 350 acres in two distinct tracts bounding north on Ashley River, east on lands late of William Cattell, Junr, decd. (The Oaks) and west on lands late of William Cattell, Senr (Brick House).

Millbrook Planation

Willed to John Alleyne Walter
At this sale the property was evidently acquired by John Alleyne Walter the son of William Walter for on 27 January, 1785, John Alleyne Walter agrees to sell to Abraham Ladson, Millbrook plantation, and on 27 February, 1786, executed the deed to Abraham Ladson for it, as containing 375 acres with boundaries showing it to be the same place as Jacksons. The name Millbrook appears to have been given to the place during the ownership of John Alleyne Walter who married Jane Oliphant daughter of Dr. David Oliphant Surgeon General of the Southern Department on the Continental establishment in the Revolutionary War. By Abraham Ladson the Millbrook property was conveyed to the Honourable Thomas Middleton sometime in 1786. The deed does not appear on record but the boundaries in deeds of the line of adjoining places show that Thomas Middleton owned it, and for some reason, probably to fortify his title, Thomas Middleton on 17 September, 1786, took out a warrant for a new grant which appears to have been issued. Thomas Middleton purchased the Vaucluse property lower down the river and does not appear ever to have made Millbrook his residence. Possibly the residence house had been burned. He died in 1795 and the property remained in his estate until 1838 when it was conveyed by his heirs and representatives to J. Pinckney Clement as Millbrook plantation containing 338 acres.
