Douglas Richardson states "Walter de Cornwall, the illegitimate son of Richard Plantagenet, Earl of Cornwall."

My research that Walter received land in Brannel, Cornwall in 1300 by gift of his half brother, Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, and that Walter died in 1313, leaving as his heir, a son William, aged 26.
