About Walter de Clifford, 2nd Baron Clifford

Walter II de Clifford

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walter II de Clifford (c. 1160 - 17 January 1221) was a Welsh Marcher Lord and High Sheriff in England.

Walter became Sheriff of Herefordshire and was a close associate of William de Braose. In March 1208 he held back from William's rebellion, but did not do enough to check it. As a result King John dismissed him from his Marcher barony of Clifford and made his son Walter III de Clifford de facto lord instead.

Walter had married Agnes Cundy of Kent before 1175. He was succeeded by his sons, Walter III de Clifford and Roger Clifford who founded the line of Northumbrian Cliffords.
