  • Notes 
    • no trace of will glos archives

      No trace burial other than one noted on Ancestry

      His burial is the only one possible it appears although really need to see death certificate

      Believed 1841 census entry, not born in Gloucestershire

      Baptism candidates via FS:

      8 june 1766 Ewyas-Harold herefordshire James & Anne

      8 mar 1752 westwood wilts James & Anne (wilts fhs) - there are baptisms for Walter and wife margaret (margery) from 1775 onwards so not him

      13 jan 1761 Huntington nr Kington Herefordshire James & anne

      4 Herefordshire marriages
      20 jan 1777 Ewyas-harold to Anne Prosser
      11 may 1781 Eardisley to Susannah Stephens
      27 nov 1794 Walford to Elizabeth Pearce
      2 jun 1791 Eardisley to Ann Phillips

      In 1841 census there is

      Walter with John & Sarah Pumphrey and daughter Elizabeth at St mary de lode aged 82. Sarah was nee Evans (could not find marriage. Looks like she remarried John Porter Linton in 1847. This Walter is presumed to be the one who died in the workhouse in 1844

      Also in 1841 there is Walter b 1769 with Elizabeth at Whitney hay hereford which is 3.3 miles from Eardisley

      Also in 1841 there is walter with Elizabeth b 1781 at cobhall common allensmore which is 6.6 miles from Ewyas Harold

      On Walter's marriage record there is a line through "Bach". Not a definitive line but could indicate he was actually a widow. Would not be a surprise given his age. Having said that I cannot find his potential previous marriage but then again I don't know where he came from!
