  • Notes 
    • "[S]heriff of Angus before 1380, called 'Schir Waler of Ogylwy, shyrreff of Angus' 10 Aug 1338, when presiding an assize, slain repelling a raid by highlanders." [The Ancestry of Charles II, citation details below]

      Widely said to have been a descendant of Gillebride, first earl of Angus, but the intervening generations are unclear. The Scots Peerage says he was a son of another Walter Ogilvy, son of a Patrick Ogilvy, and agrees that the progenitor of the Ogilvys was Gilbert, son of Gillebride, but it does not trace a proven line all the way from Gilbert to this Walter.
