Marquis de Vallado is a Spanish title bestowed upon Humphrey Walrond on 5 August 1653, by King Philip IV of Spain.

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.[1]

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.[1]

The following is a list of those members of the Walrond family who inherited these Spanish honours:
