He was the son and heir of John Reynell (d.1363/4)[3] of Trumpington in Cambridgeshire (stated in the Heraldic Visitation of Devon of 1620 to have been a Member of Parliament for Cambridgeshire in 1351/2) by his wife Maud de Fulburne[4] (alias Fulborne,[5] etc.), daughter of Giles de Fulburne of Cambridgeshire.[6] His identity is confused in the pedigree in the Heraldic Visitation of Devon of 1620, which shows his son Walter, rather than himself, as the husband of Margaret Stighull. His uncle was Sir[7]Hugh Reynell (fl.1275) (alias Hugues de Revel[8]), the 19th (or 20th) Grand Master of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem in 1275, who is memorialised by a small harbour in Malta called Renelle.[9] The earliest recorded member of the Reynell family is Sir Richard Reynell (d.pre-1213) (alias Reinell,[10] Reynolds, etc.), of Pitney in Somerset, Sheriff of Devon in 1191–4,[11] Walter Reynell’s great-great-great grandfather.

He married three times:

  • Firstly, at some time before 1376, he married a certain Agnes;[12]
  • Secondly, before 1383, he married Margaret Stighull,[13] daughter and heiress[14] of William Stighull (alias Styl, Stigill, etc.) by his wife Elizabeth Malston, daughter and heiress of Robert Malston of Malston, in the parish of Sherford in Devon, by whom he had children including:
  • Thirdly, at some time before 1400, he married Joan Bassingbourne, daughter and heiress of John Bassingbourne of Badlingham,[28] and cousin and heiress of Alan le Francis,[29] by whom he had 3 sons and 4 daughters.[30]
