  TSP shows 2 generations of Walters. BE1883 shows just one Sir Walter, High Treasurer and 1st Lord, who married Isabel Stewart. TSP reports that, whilst it "is generally stated that" the second Walter was created a Peer, "this is very doubtful, and it is more probable that it was his son who was the first Peer". TCP (Dirletoun) supports TSP.
