    • Fought at Agincourt. Supposedly, was later known locally as "The Squire of Agincourt."

      "Walter Culpeper of Goudhurst is described in his monumental brass in Goudhurst Church as son of Sir Thomas Culpeper. He is there stated to have died in 1462 and his wife Agnes Roper in 1457. [...] Walter appears to be in the list of gentlemen of Kent in the 12 Henry VI (1434), which will be referred to afterwards. Walter Culpeper of Goudhurst esquire and John Culpeper gentleman, his son, appear in the list of adherents of Jack Cade in 1450, which will also be referred to later." [The Family of Twysden and Twisden, by John Ramskill Twisden, 1939. Page 42.]
