  • Note:
    The title Baron Fauconberg has been created twice in the Peerage of England. It was first created in 1295 when Walter de Fauconberg was summoned to parliament.

    Sir Walter Fauconberg was on the King's service in Gascony with the Earl of Leicester in April, 1254. Having forfeited his estates in that Earl's rebellion, they were given to Robert de Brus of Annandale, and he had to redeem them in 1268 for ?250. He was summoned for military service from Jan. 17, 1257 (42nd of Henry III) to Nov. 7, 1302 (30th of Edward I); to Military Councils 1287 to 1297. He attended the King at Shrewsbury and wherever he went from 1283-1294. He was summoned to Parliament 1295-1302 by writs directed to Walter Fau-cum-cun-com-con-berg, whereby he is held to have become Lord Faucomberge. As Walterus dominus de Faucomberge he took part in the Barons' letter to the Pope Feb. 1300/1. He married before Nov., 1243, Agnes, sister and coheir of Sir Piers de Brus III of Skelton and Danby, who died Sept. 18, 1272. She was first daughter of Piers de Brus II by Hawise, sister and heir of Sir William de Lancastre, Lord of Kendall, who died Nov. 29, 1246, and elder daughter of Sir Gilbert FitzRoger FitzReinfrid, Lord of Kendall and Lancaster. On Dec. 14, 1272, the King took his fealty and he and his wife had livery of her brother's lands, viz., of the castle, park and forest of Skelton, the Manors of Marske, Eastburn, etc., in County York, and a moiety of the wapentake of Langburgh, and a moiety of the advowson of Gunsborough Priory. On May 25, 1280, he alone had a grant of free warren to his demesne lands, from which it appears that his wife was then deceased. He died about midnight, Nov. 2, 1304, at Rise and was buried in the Priory of Nunkeeling. He was Governor of Plimpton Castle, County Devon, in 1224. He was summoned to Parliament from 23rd of Edward I, 1295, to his death, 32nd of Edward I. They had seven sons and four daughters: Peter d. y., Walter, Francis, Alice, Peter again, Alex, John, Patrick, Loretta, Helewys and Agnes.
