Sir Walter Calverley c.1368
« on: Monday 03 March 08 17:54 GMT (UK) »
I have recently traced my tree to a Sir Walter Calverley, from Calverley in West Yorkshire. His daughter was Margaret Calverley c.1409. Does anyone please have any information on him. I have tried looking on the internet but drew a blank.

I would be very grateful for any information at all about him.

Best Regards
Yorkshire Rose

The peerage seems to have begun with Sir Walter Calverly b. 16 Jan 1669 and created 1st Baronet Calverly in 1711.

His father Walter - no title - was born about 1629


There is a fair amount there if you Google Sir Walter Calverley, but not before the 1600's.

If you are sure of your data and dates, then Burkes Peerage should be able to help you

Calverley "Battle of Shrewsbury"

A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies ... By John Burke Esq., John Bernard Burke Esq. (Second Edition) 1841 Reprinted 1844
Calverley, of Calverley
https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=j3Q-AQAAIAAJ&pg=PA97&lpg=PA97&dq=Calverley+%22Battle+of+Shrewsbury%22&source=bl&ots=CSWW438H1j&sig=ACfU3U0bsarlVXmF9Dhl_k1DWGaTqb5OiA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwig5LvAr6nnAhXBkFwKHZOTCiYQ6AEwAnoECAQQAQ

 ----------

A person who is issueless, is childless.

Dying issueless, could also mean no child descendant still alive.

 ----------

Arms were specifically styled and granted to one specific individual only, although the original holder's son or direct line descendant sometimes applied for a Royal Grant and they had their own personal Arms designed and approved (see Cadency).

 ----------

When you see "de" before a name (Medieval period) it means of or from and can be a place name.

 ----------

For example Thomas de Stockingford Warwickshire, meant Thomas of Stockingford and I have a scan of the 1592 Plan of the Galley Common Stockingford, Warwickshire and in the accompanying Nuneaton and Stockingford Charters, it stated the 1592 Plan was drawn from a description in an ancient Deed of Hugh Lylborne [Hugh Lilleburn] and one of the field areas on the 1592 Plan West of the Common was called Thoms Field, so referring to land of Thomas of the earlier Hugh Lilleburn period.

Also Thomas was a Prior of Daventry, (Northamptonshire - Victoria County History)
Thomas of Stockingford, elected 1360, died 1361.

Laud Mss at the Bodleian Library, Oxford, refer to Henry II and confirm the above Stockingford was a Locus c.1154. Locus means it was a place (so a place name).


Many Medieval people were often known by their first name only, in the example above as "Thomas" followed by the place name, making Thomas de Stockingford.
