From Sir John Lewknor's Dynastic Loyalty and Debt: "Walter Dallingridge was the brother of Sir Edward Dallingridge, a leading servant of the earl of Arundel". According to a footnote to the testament of William Mowbray, his wife was Margaret, daughter and heir of John Chaumont who after his death married Walter de Dallingridge. (Testamenta Eboracensia). In the Chancery Inq. p.m. 21 Henry VI, nº 52 Walter is named as brother of John son of Edward. Please the different statements above. It seems that the last word of the Dallingridge pedigree has not been spoken yet.
Traces of his activities:
1375 - Commission to John de Arundel, Walter Dalyngrugge and others to arrest John Basset, William de Tracy and others and commit them to the nearest prison for safekeeping until further order for their delivery. (Cal. Pat. Rolls)
1385 - Grant during the minority of the heir to Walter Dalyngrugg, of the custody of William Upton, bondman of the son and heir of Edward le Despenser, tenant in chief.

1394 and 1397 - he appears in lists headed by John (of Gaunt), Duke of Lancaster, Richard earl of Arundel, and Thomas [Mowbray], earl marshal, in Sussex. The year 1394 also sees him as a member of a commission to enquire what lieges of the king were in contact with the French or foreign merchants. (C.P.R.)
Walter was summoned for array in Sussex in 1394 and 1397. He was living in 1398 (Bodiam and his Lords, SAC). There is a brass in Fletching church showing him and his wife
