Walter Long (MP 1701–1702)

Walter Long JP (ca. 1648 – 16 July 1731) was an English politician.

The son of Walter Long (ca. 1623-ca. 1699) and his wife Barbara Brayfield, he was elected Member of Parliament for Calne, Wiltshire in 1701 but lost his seat the following year to Edward Bayntun.

He was High Sheriff of Wiltshire 1703-1704.

His grandfather John Long (ca. 1585-1636), was disinherited by his father, Sir Walter Long (1565-1610) of South Wraxall and Whaddon, by the contrivances of the latter's second wife Catherine née Thynne (a daughter of the first Sir John Thynne of Longleat) but a compromise later led John to receiving South Wraxall, and his brother the manor of Draycot. South Wraxall eventually passed to Walter Long, who died unmarried in 1731. He is buried at South Wraxall, near Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire.

    More are men’s ends marked than their lives before.
