Walter was born in Boxted, Suffolk, in 1831 and baptised 23 July.  He was said to have been educated at King George School at Bury St. Edmunds but this not documented.  He enjoyed hunting.

Walter first married Georgina Deeks who was born in Marylebone, London, in 1835 and baptised 12th July.  She was the only child of George Deeks, auctioneer, and Catherine Harper, who were married in 1834 at St. Martin in the field, Westminster and lived at 136 Westbourne Terrace, Hyde Park, London. George Deeks was born 24 November 1798 at Poslingford, Suffolk, the son of George Deeks and Mary Golding.  He died 22 October 1871 in Wood Green, London.   Catherine Harper was born in Cockfield, Suffolk, 4 Jan 1805, the daughter of William Harper and Elizabeth James.

Georgina was 24 and Walter 27 when they were married at Bradfield Combust, 31 March 1859.  They lived at Loft Farm, Cockfield, a farm of 110 acres owned by Georgina's father.  One servant, Eliza Ann Gladwell, lived with them.

In August 1860 the servant gave birth to Walter's baby.  In 1861 Walter was living at Loft Farm with the servant and their baby while Georgina was in London with her parents.

Georgina died of TB on 9 April 1863 at Westbourne Terrace 'after severe illness brought on by great anxiety of the mind' according to the announcement in a Suffolk newspaper.  Walter's servant was now expecting their second child.

Eliza was born 22 March 1838 in Cockfield, the illegitimate child of John Tiffen and Martha Gladwell.  In 1841 she was aged 3 and living with the Tiffens but her mother was not there.

They were married two months after the death of Walter's first wife at St. Leonard's parish church, Shoreditch, London, 3 June 1863.  Eliza was 25, Walter 32.   The marriage certificate gives Walter's occupation as 'butcher' and their address as Holywell Street, Shoreditch, but neither were true.

Presumably Georgina's father made Walter leave Loft Farm, and in October the following year they were at Potash Farm in Donkey Lane, Lawshall.  But Walter was not a successful farmer and he got into financial difficulties.  When his father died in 1866 he left money invested for Walter who could draw the interest but the capital had to remain untouched until his death when it was to be divided equally among his 'legitimate' children. In 1871 Walter was at Lawshall, but 'out of business'.  The same year he was accused of indecently assaulting a 16-year-old girl who lived on the same farm, for which he was fined £5 plus costs.

He then moved to New Lodge Farm at Kenny Hill, known as 'The Fifties' because it was 50 acres.  Here the family grew to nine, but Walter was no more successful than at his previous farms, and by 1881 he was working as a farm labourer.   They now lived in Holywell Row in a cottage to the rear of the Post Office.  
The post office was owned by Mr. Haylock. and two of the children later married Haylocks.  In 1901 Eliza was a laundress.  She died 31 October 1911 aged 73, and Walter died 24 February 1915 aged 83.  Both were buried at Beck Row.
