The following is copied from portions of the Wikipedia article on the "De Walcott family", which was adapted from information on the "The Historic Happing" Website with permission.
In 1240 and possibly 1281, Thomas de Walcott held part of the advowson (income) of Walcott church and was lord of West Hall in Walcott.
In 1286, Sir Walter de Walcott held a moiety in Hempstead  and was patron of Wallington[disambiguation needed] in 1302. Walter was married to Lucia.
In 1286, Alexander de Walcott, son of Walter de Walcott, and his brother Thomas had 16 messuages, 120 acres (0.49 km2) of land, 12 acres (49,000 m2) of pasture, 31 acres (130,000 m2) of wood in Eccles, Hempstead, Palling and Stalham.
Alexander de Walcott was lord of West Hall in 1302, a lord in Walcott in 1315, and in 1316 he and his wife (Maud) held West Hall.
Alexander de Walcott presented his brother Hugh as Rector of Walcott church in 1302  and presented John de Walcott as Rector of Walcott church in 1322.
There is confusion about whom Alexander de Walcott married. Francis Bloomfield states that in 1333 he was married to Joan and paid 15 marks to the King for an interest in Hempstead. However, he is also noted as being married to Maud and had four daughters called Cecilia, Elizabeth, Mariota and Margaret. Possibly he was married twice.
In 1340 Alexander de Walcott conveyed his right in West Hall in Walcott to Sir Walter de Walcott [A], his son  Alexander de Walcott died in 1341.
Sir Walter de Walcott was a lord in Walcott in 1347 and in 1355 he presented to Walcott church.
In 1347 Simon de Walcott was presented to Walcott church by Thomas de Walcott, Rector of Felbrigg.
Walter married Millicent, daughter and heir of Walter de Gunton and held the manor of Gunton. Walter and Millicent had three daughters  – one was Margaret, who married Thomas de Wymondham – and a son, also called Walter [B].
Sir Walter de Walcott died in 1355.
Sir Walter [B] de Walcott died in 1366. He was married to Joan, daughter of Walter de Clopton. Walter and Joan had four daughters: Elizabeth who married Ralph Bray of Wickhampton; Catherine who married John Durward; Margery a nun of Carrow Priory in Norwich; and Margaret who married Sir Robert Berney of Wickhampton and had the manor of Gunton.
NOTE: I believe that there were 2 people named Alexander de Walcott, father & son, with the father m. to Maud and the son m. to Joan. Also the Walter stated above to have died in 1366, must have died before 1362, which is the year his wife Joan Clopton gave birth to a child by her 2nd husband Roger de Beaumont. Also note that Bloomfield, in its article on Walcott (see notes for Thomas Walcott, b <1216) stated that the Walter who d. 1355 3 daughters & coheirs (implying no son)-- maybe Millicent de Gunton was a 2nd wife, with the 3 daughters born to the 1st wife, making them coheirs of her. On the other hand Walter (B) of Gunton was definitely an heir of Millicent, and Bloomfield, in his article on Gunton, states that Walter (A) and Milicentia had a son Walter (B) who m. Joan Clopton.
