Waltheof of Bamburgh
The name 'Waltheof' remained in his family when Earl Siward married his great-granddaughter and named his son Waltheof. This son of Siward became Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria, and one of his descendant being Saint Waltheof of Melrose.
Additionally, another branch of the family would use the Waltheof name including: Waltheof of Allerdale who was son of Gospatric, Earl of Northumbria. Waltheof of Inverkeithing and Dalmeny was son of Cospatric, and grandson of Waltheof of Allerdale. Another descendant of Gospatric, Earl of Northumbria was Waltheof, Earl of Dunbar
Genealogical research provides a thesis that there is a high probability that Waltheof de Strachan is likely descendant from this line as well. Walthoef de Strachan is the progenitor of Clan Strachan.
Nothing is known about Waltheof I's period in office.
