301 Biography

Of the sons of Sir Thomas Colepeper Walter succeeded to all the estates except Exton on the death of his half-brother Sir John and was the only one to leave sons...
Walter Colepeper who continued the line married Agnes the daughter of Edmund Roper of St. Dunstans Canterbury and is so described on her tombstone at Goudhurst. She was also the widow of John son of John de Bedgebury a fact not mentioned in the pedigrees recorded in the Visitations but which is amply evidenced by an undated Chancery Procceding temp. Hen. VI. where Walter Coulpepir and Agneis his wife late the wife of John son of John de Beggebury and Thomas Chaundeler chaplain appear as plaintiffs in a dispute relating to property in Goudhurst Cranbrook and Hawkhurst which John son of Roger de Beggebury left to pay for two chaplains to sing masses for his soul and for that of Johanna his wife. By this marriage Walter Colepeper had with two daughters--Margaret married to Alexander Clifford and Elizabeth married to John Hardes of Hardes co. Kent--three sons Richard John and Nicholas. Agnes his wife predeceased him on the 2nd December 1457 and was buried at Goudhurst and Walter himself died on the 24th November 1462 and was also buried at Goudhurst.
Although the pedigree given above differs in many respects from those recorded in the Visitation it is substantiated not only by many Inquisitions Deeds and Grants but also by a suit entered on membrane 484 of the De Banco Roll Hilary 4 Edward IV. whence the following pedigree is deduced:
..John Culpeper(5)
....Thomas Culpeper(6)
......Thomas Culpeper(7)
......Walter Culpeper(7)
........John Culpeper(8)
........Richard Culpeper(8)
........Nicholas Culpeper(8)
......John Culpeper(7)
......Nicholas Culpeper(7)
This suit has reference to the fine levied in 1320 the John at the head of the pedigree being the son of Sir Thomas and Margery and the plaintiffs John Richard and Nicholas Colepeper claiming one quarter of these lands against Sir John Fogge according to the customs of gavelkind in right of their father Walter.
Although Richard is entered in the Visitation in Kent in 1619 as Walter Colepeper's eldest son this was not the case as Sir John as the eldest son inherited Hardreshull co. Warwick Bayhall co. Kent and Wigsell co. Sussex. It appears also from the same Visitation that this Sir John married Agnes daughter of John Bedgebury but no mention whatever is there made of the undoubted fact that some time before 1460 he was the husband of Agnes Gainsford which is clearly proved by the Proceedings in Chancery relating to the abduction of the two Wakehurst heiresses by Sir John's brothers Richard and Nicholas where it is expressly stated that a sister of John and William Gainsford was wedded to John Culpepyr and later on in the same suit mention is made of John Culpeper and Agnes his wife. The marriage is also alluded to in De Banco Roll Trin. 5 Edward IV. m. 118d and it explains the mention of Ottewell and George Gainsford (grandsons of the above John Gainsford who married Anne Wakehurst aunt of the co-heiresses and sons of Sir John Gainsford by Anne daughter of Ottewell Worsley) as cousins in the will Walter Colepeper of Calais 1514--1516.
The question arises therefore as to whether the record of Sir John's marriage with Agnes Bedgebury is not due to a mistake on the part of the heralds. In their pedigree they certainly omit these two important facts viz. that before 1460 Sir John was the husband of Agnes Gainsford and also that his father Walter's wife of the same Christian name was the widow of John Bedgebury. It seems therefore not improbable that these two marriages have been confused; such indeed must have been the case unless Sir John was twice married and of this the Visitation affords no evidence whatever. Sir John Colepeper died 22nd December 1480 and was buried at Goudherst.

At the time of their check at the hands of Edward II the Culpepers seem to have recently inaugurated their characteristic practice of land acquisition by the time honored expedient of marrying heiresses. It was from their first manor so acquired that of Bayhall in the Kentish parish of Pembury on the southern border of the weald that they spread as Hasted remarks 'over the whole face of the county' of Kent; and we may add eventually of adjacent Sussex as well.
In this process the Walter Culpeper who fought at Agincourt being of the seventh recorded generation of his family put his roots in the ground a few miles southeast of Bayhall. About 1425 he married the widow of the last Bedgebury of Bedgebury in Goudhurst and was buried with that family in Goudhurst church. His tomb described him as 'arm. filius Thorne Culpeper militis... obiit 24 November 1462' (Weever Antient Funeral Monuments 1767 ed. p. 69); which identifies him genealogically as the Walter son of Thomas who himself left sons John Richard and Nicholas as rehearsed in DeBanco Roll 4 Edw. IV Hilary Term membrane 484.

Colepeper, Walter (I5184)
302 Biography

Walter Culpeper began life like his grandfather the squire of Agincourt for whom he was named as a professional soldier; but unlike his grandfather he did not live to retire to his estates. The earliest record of him is on the page of national history at the very end of his career.
The Chronicle of Calais (Camden Society No. 35 p. 6) recites him in October 1508 as under marshall of that town present at the treaty for the marriage of Mary daughter of Henry VII to the Duke of Burgundy afterwards the emperor Charles V; and in that capacity there was assigned to him at the beginning of the next reign (July 1509) a Crown tenement in Fisherstrete in Calais and an annuity of £20 out of the revenues of the town. Two years later in November 1511 being then recited a 'squire of the body' of Henry VIII lie was granted also the post of bailiff of the Scavage of Calais and the isle of Colne (L. & P. Henry VIII i 47 94 298).
His crowding hour came in August 1513 when his young master was engaged in the invasion of France to assert an outworn claim of inheritance of that realm and it was Walter's fortune to be left for the moment in responsible command of the garrison of Calais. The chronicler Hall records (Holinshed iii 580) that as the King lay before Therouanne on the Flemish border the captain of Boulogue made a night foray on Calais seeking booty and to insult the invading English. Arriving with a thousand men at the bridge which defended the causey leading to the town the Frenchman surprised the guard and captured the ordnance there mounted. Retaining 600 men at the bridge 'for a stale' he then dispatched the remaining 400 'into the marishes and meadows to fetch away the beasts and cattle which they should find there.' Some of these foragers approached so near the walls of Calais as to raise the alarm whereupon:
"about five of the clocke in the morning the gate of Calis called Bullongue gate was opened and by permission of the deputie one Culpeper the under marshall with two hundred archers under a banner of Saint George issued forth' and 'set so fiercelie on that finallie the Frenchmen were discomfited and four and twentie of them slaine besides twelve score that were made prisoners and all the ordnance and bootie again recouered. These prisoners were brought to Calais and there sold in open market."
Walter died before June 24 1515 (when he was recited dead on the appointment of Sir H. Banaster to his bailiffry L. & P. Henry VIII' ii 168) leaving a will which bristles with as many old world weapons as a modern museum. The will was as follows:

In 1215-16 he obtained from King John a confirmation of a grant of a market and fair at Hartlepool. He was a witness at York in 1221 of Alexander II's charter of jointure to his wife Joanna sister of Henry III. During this reign his own great estate and royal connection by marriage made the lord of Annandale one of the chief barons of southern Scotland. Like his ancestors he was liberal to the church confirming and increasing their grants. He died in 1245 and was buried at the abbey of Saltrey in Huntingdonshire.
