  • Notes 
      Walter FitzEdward, son of Edward of Salisbury, styled also Walter FitzEdward of Salisbury and Walter the Sheriff, was sheriff of Wiltshire under King Henry I, but lost the office for a time in that reign. In 1130 he was acquitted of four pounds _Danegeld_ in Dorset and seven pounds in Wiltshire. He was present at the Council of Northampton in September 1131. He was with King Stephen at Westminster at Easter 1136, and at Salisbury at Christmas 1139. He founded the Priory of Bradenstoke in Wiltshire, and was a benefactor to Salisbury Cathedral.

      Walter married Sibylle de Chanort, daughter of Patrick de Chaorces (Chaworth) and Maud, daughter of Ernulf de Hesdin. Sibylle had as her marriage-portion fifteen fees of the old feoffment and one newly made. She died before her husband and was buried near the choir in the Priory of Bradenstoke. He took the habit of a canon there, died in 1147, and was buried in the same grave as his wife. They had three sons, William, Patrick and Walter, and at least two daughters, Havise and Sibylle, of whom Havise would have progeny by both her husbands, Rotrou I, comte du Perche and Robert I, comte de Dreux.
