The Coat of Arms associated with the Little Dunmow Branch of House de Clare, the Lords of Little Dunmow & the Barons Fitz Walter from 1064 to 1485
House Fitz Walter has it's origins with Robert Fitz Richard, 1st Baron of Little Dunmow (1064–1136), son of Richard Fitz Gilbert, 1st Lord of Clare (1030–1091) by his wife Rohese de Giffard, (1034-1100). Robert Fitz Richard became tenant in chief of Little Dunmow after the conquest of Enlgand in 1066. It was this Robert FitzWalter who became one of the Sureties for the barons when Magna Carta was signed in 1215. Elizabeth Fitz Walter, 6th Baroness Fitz Walter (1430–1485), heiress of the 5th baron and mother of John Radcliffe (1452-1496), was the last person carrying the FitzWatler name to hold the title.

It passed onto the Radcliffe family in 1506 when Robert Radcliffe was named 6th Baron FitzWalter. At the end of the 16th century the title passed into the Mildmay family when Henry Mildmay became the de jure 15th Baron Fitz Walter (1585–1654) when the title was reverted. Tt went into Abeyance in 1756 on the death of Benjamin Mildmay, 19th Baron Fitz Walter (1672–1756). Abeyance was terminated in 1924 when it entered the Plumptre family and Henry Fitz Walter Plumptre (1860-1934) became the 20th Baron Fitz Walter (1860–1932). The creation of the Barony of FitzWalter in the 13th century and first held by Robert Fitz Walter, 1st Baron Fitz Walter (1237-1326) survives to this day with the current title holder is Julian Brook Plumptre, 22nd Baron Fitz Walter (1952-present) and her Heir being Edward Brook Plumptre (1989-present).
