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

    SIR ROBERT FITZWALTER, of Woodham Walter, &c., 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, by 2nd wife, aged 25 and more at his father's death. In August 1322 he was about to go to Scotland on the King's service. On 12 February 1325/6 the King took his homage, and he had livery of his father's lands, with the issues from the date of his father's death to the said 12 February. He was affianced, by contract dated Thursday before the Annunciation 18 March 1304/5, to Joan, daughter of Sir John BUTETOURTE.

    He married Joan, sister and coheir of Sir John DE MULTON, of Egremont, Cumberland, Moulton, Fleet, and Beausolace, co. Lincoln, &c. [LORD MULTON], and 1st daughter of Sir Thomas DE MULTON, of the same [LORD MULTON], by Alianore, 1st daughter of Richard (DE BURGH), EARL OF ULSTER. He died 6 May 1328. On 6 August 1328 his widow had livery of her dower, viz., the manors of Henham, Hempnall, and Shimpling, and, 28 October following, of the knights' fees and advowsons, of her dower, all of which had been assigned to her by the King. There was a licence, 12 December 1328, for her to marry John de Waylond, if she gave her consent. On 29 April 1338 the king took her homage, and she had livery of her purparty of the lands, knights' fees, cornages, and advowsons, that she inherited from her brother, John de Multon, all of which had been assigned to her by the King. She thus obtained the castle of Egremont, and one-third of each of the manors of Fleet and Beausolace. On 25 October 1339 she obtained her purparty of the lands which Alice, late the wife of John de Multon, had held in dower in England, and, 24 May 1340, of those which the same Alice had so held in Ireland. She, who was aged 30 in 1334, died 16 June 1363, and was buried in Dunmow Priory. [Complete Peerage V:475-6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: CP doesn't consider Sir Robert a Baron, although Burke's Peerage does. Robert outlived his father, so I agree with BP; however I will follow CP's numbering in his descendants. Also CP doesn't mention a previous marriage for Robert, which Magna Carta Ancestry does.
