The name of this family is supposed to be derived either from Walsham le Willows in Suffolk, or Walsham St. Mary in Norfolk, in both of which counties, as in Cambridgeshire, the Walshams were of note, and often of knightly rank, from the end of the nth to the beginning of the i8th century. The Walshams of Knill represent a branch that settled in Radnorshire about 400 years ago, through the marriage of John Walsham with Mary, granddaughter and heiress of Sir Jenkin Harvey of Llanvair, Knight. From this marriage lineally descended John Walsham, who married Barbara, granddaughter and heiress of John Knill, Esq., of Knill Court, M.P. for Radnor, tetnp. Philip and Mary, and was the direct ancestor, in the ninth degree, of the present baronet. The ist baronet received his baronetcy as being the eldest coheir and representative of Gen.
