Marquis de Vallado
Walrond, from Sea, Somerset, was a distinguished Royalist commander, and subsequent Deputy Governor of Barbados. He defeated the Roundheads in the island in 1650, maintained a Royalist regime there throughout the Commonwealth and Protectorate, was appointed Deputy Governor in 1660, but continued to act as Governor until 1662.
Along with the Marquisate he was also created the Conde de Parama y Valderonda ("Count of Parama and Valderonda") and a Grandee of the 1st Class. It was general practice for the eldest son of the incumbent of the title to bear the lesser and courtesy title of Conde de Parama.
