    Younger son.
    of Powyke and Alcester. (See Burke, pg. 34.) He having purchased from Reginald Fitzherbert a moiety of the manor of Alcester, co. Warwick, made that one of his principal seats, calling it Beauchamp Court; the other being at Powyke, co. Worcester. This Walter, who was an eminent person at the period in which he lived, being signed with the cross for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, had a legacy of 200 marks bequeathed to him by his father, for his better performance of that voyage. He was steward of the household to King Edward I., and attended that monarch to Flanders, and into Scotland, where he shared in the honors of Falkirk on July 22, 1298. In the 29th year of the same reign he was one of the lords in the parliament of Lincoln, being then styled Dominus de Alcester, who signified to the Pope, under their seals, the superiority of King Edward over the kingdom of Scotland. In Prestwich's "Edward I," it describes Walter de Beauchamp in a quotation from "The Siege of Carlaverock" as follows: "a knight who would have been one of the best of all, according to my opinion, if he had not been too proud and rashly insolent, but you won't hear anyone talk of the steward without a 'but' ".
