Name: Walter de Meus
Birth: BEF 1244
Change Date: 8 SEP 2006
Said by Bill Meux to be father of Thomas, ancestor of the Meux famly of the Isle of Wight.
Walter is not mentioned in Clay's account of "The Family of Meaux" save in that his father had five sons of whom the eldest was John.
In EYC, Vol XI, p. 263, Clay says that an account of this family is given in the Meaux Chronicle (vol ii, pp. 45-6).
Apr, 2006, TFPL: On re-reading Bill Meux book, he is very uncertain how the Meux line may have descended to those of the Isle of Wight (if at all). He gives the names of the four younger brother, Simon, Peter, Walter and Robert and seems to indicate that the supposed ancestor may have been Peter. I think the time has come to cut the line of descent here until some better evidence is found.
Father: Thomas de Meus b: BEF 1219
Mother: Mazelina Fitzgols
