Walter Long Edit Profile
He served as a Justice of the Peace for Wiltshire from 1623 until his death. He replaced Sir James Ley as MP for Westbury in 1621 when Ley was appointed to a post in the House of Lords. He was re-elected for the same seat in 1625 and 1626.
There was one son from this marriage, his heir, Sir James Long, 2nd Baronet. The rift seems to have continued till the end of the Earl's life - in his will he 'begged pardon of the Lady Anne'. Long married secondly, Elizabeth Master c.1636, and they had one son, Walter (d1673).
Sir Walter Long died in July 1637, and his widow died in 1658. According to one of William Waller's men writing about the capture of Long's son Sir James at Devizes in 1645, Sir Walter Long had died after falling from his horse near Chichester and breaking his neck.
