On 22 May 1306 he was amongst those knighted with Edward, Prince of Wales. In 1308 Walter presented to Sudbury church. [Charles Cox, Churches of Derbyshire, v.3 p. 316].

His first wife and mother of his children is unknown.
He married secondly Joan, daughter of Sir Robert de Stafford and widow of Peter de Gresley d.c 1310. She was implicated in the murder of her stepson, William de Montgomery.
