Hervey Walter was a member of aristocracy in England.

From the 1911 version of the Encyclopedia Britannica: "BUTLER, the name of a family famous in the history of Ireland. The great house of the Butlers, alone among the families of the conquerors, rivalled the Geraldines, their neighbours, kinsfolk and mortal foes. Theobald Walter, their ancestor, was not among the first of the invaders. He was the grandson of one Hervey Walter who, in the time of Henry I., held Witheton or Weeton in AmoundernĂªss, a small fee of the honour of Lancaster, the manor of Newton in Suffolk, and certain lands in Norfolk. In the great inquest of Lancaster lands that followed a writ of 1212, this Hervey, named as the father of Hervey Walter, is said to have given lands in his fee of Weeton to Orm, son of Magnus, with his daughter Alice in marriage."

He married a daughter (first name unknown) of Walter de CAEN.

Held lands in Norfolk, Suffolk, and Lancashire in the Reign of Henry I.
