Walter FitzRobert, 2nd Baron of Little Dunmow (1124-1198) was the son og was the son of Sir Robert FitzRichard, 1st Baron of Little Dunmow (1064-1138) by his wife Matilda de St. Liz (1091-1158).


Walter FitzRobert married Matilda de Bohun (1140-1222), daughter of Humphrey de Bohun by his wife Margaret of Huntingdon, Princess of Scotland (1140–1201), and had two children by that marriage:

  • Robert FitzWalter (1167-1235) Heir; a Magna Charta Surety
  • Alice FitzWalter; married Gilbert Peche.

When Robert, and his co-conspirators, fled after being implicated in the 1212 plot against King John, John required that the Barons present hostages to show their loyalty. Alice and Gilbert Peche had the same requirement placed against them; one of the hostages was their daughter, Alice.
