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

    BP (above) and many others have Robert as son of Walter FitzOther, but the following, which adds later thinking, was excerpted from a post, 9 May 1999, to SGM:

    Debate has centred on whether his father Walter was Walter fitz Other (Windsor) or Walter the Deacon (otherwise known as Walter fitz Tedric). Moriarty opts for the first alternative and then in a later extended note of correction for the latter. Keats-Rohan *Domesday People* I:454 says that Walter the Deacon was brother (not son) and heir of Tedric (Theoderic) in the lands in Essex which became known as the barony of Little Easton and that Robert fitz Walter (aka de Windsor) was Walter's son. Moriarty and Keats Rohan both come to roughly the same conclusion based on the work of L Landon "The Barony of Little Easton and the Family of Hastings" in *Trans. Essex Arch. Soc.* vol xix. In addition K-R cites B Dodwell "Charters relating to the Honour of Bacton" in Stenton Miscellany (but precisely what this Stenton work is titled I don't know - a quick look at the bibliography hasn't enlightened me!).

    It is likely that Robert fitz Walter married a dau. of Walter fitz Other according to Moriarty and both he and K-R note that Robert fitz Walter's sister, Edith married (1) Ralph steward of Bury St Edmunds and (2) Maurice de Windsor.

    Note: I am following the above pedigree, making Walter, a son (not brother) of Tedric as the name "FitzTedric" implies.
