Walker

[The Walkers, of 'Ulster-Scotch-Irish' of Dane, Gaelic, Saxon descent: Followed John Knox's Presbyterian teachings based on John Calvin's Institutes of Christian Religion, pub. 1536; that it was not good to be rich nor beg, that life's satisfaction was derived from hard work. They renounced Catholicism, became outcasts; during the Reformation, Cromwell beheaded the King, exiled many of them to N. Ireland.  They were leery of government, avoided the census, recorded few deeds, moved frequently yet in groups.]
