  General Notes:

WALTER FitzEdward de Salisbury (-1147). The Book of Lacock names "Walterum de Saresburia" as son of "Edwardum…vicecomitem Wiltes". Sheriff of Wiltshire during the reign of King Henry I. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record that "Walterus de Sireburne" used to hold one knight´s fee from the abbot of Glastonbury in Somerset "tempore Regis Henrici" (presumably indicating King Henry I) and that "comes Patricius" now held the same.

m ([1115/20]) SIBYL de Chaources, daughter of PATRICK [I] de Chaources [Chaworth]& his wife Mathilde de Hesdin. The Book of Lacock records that "Walterus de Saresburia" married "Sibillam de Cadurcia". The date of her marriage can be estimated very approximately from the likely birth date of her son William. Bracton lists a claim by "[Willelmus Comes] Sarr et Ela [uxor eius]" against "Paganum de Chawtesteford in comitatu Gloucestrie" dated 1218, recording that "Patricius de Chawrtes antecessor eiusdem Pagani" gave a manor (unnamed) "[in maritagium] --- Sibilla sua" from whom it descended to "Patricio filio suo et de ipse Patricio --- [patri ipsius] Ele et de ipso Willelmo predicte Ele".

Walter & his wife had five children: William, Patrick, Hawise, Walter and Sibyl.

-------------------------------------------

WALTER OF SALISBURY, styled also Walter FitzEdward and Walter the Sheriff, son and heir, was sheriff of Wilts under Henry I; but lost the office for a time in that reign. In 1130 he was acquitted of £4 Danegeld in Dorset and £7 in Wilts. He was present at the Council of Northampton, September 1131. He was with Stephen at Westminster at Easter 1136, and at Salisbury at Christmas 1139. He founded the Priory of Bradenstoke, Wilts; and was a benefactor to Salisbury Cathedral.

He married Sibyl, daughter of Patrick DE CHAOURCES [Chaworth], by Maud, daughter of Ernulf DE HESDIN; which Sibyl had as her marriage-portion 15 fees of the old feoffment and one newly made. She died before her husband and was buried near the quire in Bradenstoke. He took the habit of a canon there, died in 1147, and was buried in the same grave as his wife
