Several pedigrees of the Wallers of Groombridge claim descent from this Alured le Walur. Here are three examples of discussions of this pedigree. "The ancient family of Waller derives from Alured de Waller, of Newark,in the county of Nottingham, who d. in 1183, (see Domesday Book), and from whom lineally descended David de Waller, master of the rolls to King Edward III for thirty years. This David d. issueless; but from his only brother, Henry Waller, sprang John Waller, of Groombridge, in the county of Kent, who m. the daughter and heiress of Landsdall, esq. of Lansdall, in Sussex, and was father of Richard Waller, a gallant participator in the glories of Agincourt, who, in honor of having made prisoner the Duke of Orleans in that memorable conflict, obtained, from Henry V the addition to his crest, of a shield of the arms of the duke, pendent from the sinister side of a walnut tree, which his descendants have ever since borne. The French prince having been brought to England, was confined at Mr. Waller's seat, at Groombridge. The grandson and direct successor of this gentleman, John Waller, esq. of Groomsbridge, m. Anne, daughter of William Whetenhall, esq., and dying in 1517 left two sons, William, his successor [and] John, ancestors of the Wallers of Beaconsfield, in the county of Bucks; of which family was Edmund Waller, the poet." [John Burke, A General and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage of the British Empire, H. Colburn and R. Bentley, 1832, v. 2, p. 581-582]

"The family of Waller traces back to Alured de Waller of Newark, Nottingham. He lived in the reign of King Henry II and died in the year 1183. The name Waller is recorded in the Doomsday Book. Alured was of Norman origin... In the year 1405, Thomas de Waller the sixth generation from Alured de Waller purchased from Lord Clinton the estate "Groomsbridge" in Kent. [Sam Rayburn, "Waller," Filson Historical Society, The Filson Club history quarterly, 1952, v. 26, p. 333-337]

"The family of Waller is descended from Alured de Waller, of Newark, County Nottingham, who died in 1183, and from whom descended David de Waller, master of the rolls for thirty-six years to King Edward III. Henry Waller, of Hockerton, brother of David, was great great grandfather of John Waller, of Groombridge, Co. Kent, the latter being father of Sir Richard Waller who participated in the glories of Agincourt, where he made a prisoner of the Duke of Orleans, and was specially honoured by Henry V for his brave and gallant actions in that memorable conflict." [A Cyclopedia of Canadian Biography, v.1, edited by George Maclean Rose, Rose Publishing Co., 1886, p. 39, in an article about William Henry Waller of the Irish branch of the family]

Was the great grandson of the Hero of Hastings. He is mentioned on the mural tablet erected by Sir Jonathan Wathen Waller (b. 17609) at Speldhurst Church,m near Tonbridge Wells,m in County Kent, Eng. He lived at Newark, Nottinghamshire and married Adelina de Hockerton.

Alured de Valer, who died in 1183, was a great grandson of The Hero of Hastings. He is

mentioned on the mural tablet erected by Sir Jonathan Wathen Waller (b. 1769) at Speldhurst Church, near

Tonbridge Wells, in County Kent. He lived at Newark, Nottinghamshire and married Adelina de

Hockerton.

Alured DE Valer, who died in 1183 was a great grandson of the Hero of Hastings. He is mentioned on the mural tablet erected by Sir Jonathan Wathen Waller (born 1769) at Speldhurst Church, near Tonbridge Wells in County Kent. He lived at Newark, Nottinghamshire and Married Adelina de Hockerton (Gumbert).

Unknown DE Valers. Statements have appeared in print that Alured De Valer fought with William the Conqueror in the Battle of Hastings, October 14, 1066; was given land in England for his military service; that his name is recorded in the Domesday Book(published in 1086) and that he died in 1183. Since there is a spread of 117 years from the Battle of Hastings to the year 1183, it seems clear that the same person could not have taken part in that battle and lived until 1183. It has been decided, at least to our satisfaction, that two generations of Valers must have existed between the veteran of Hastings and the recorded death of an Alured in 1183. -------------------- Generation 4, Alured de Valer, who died in 1183, was a great grandson of The Hero of Hastings. He is mentioned on the mural tablet erected by Sir Jonathan Wathen Waller (b. 1769) at Speldhurst Church, near Tonbridge Wells, in County Kent. He lived at Newark, Nottinghamshire and married Adelina de Hockerton.
