Walter Chetwynd, 1st Viscount Chetwynd (3 June 1678 – 21 February 1736), of Rudge and Ingestre, Staffordshire, succeeded in 1693 to the Ingestre estates on the death of his cousin Walter Chetwynd (1633–1693). He was the eldest son of John Chetwynd (1643-1702)

He served as Member of Parliament from 1702 to 1711, from 1712 to 1722 and again from 1725 to 1734.[1] He was also made Master of the Buckhounds from 1709 to 1711. He was elevated to an Irish Peerage in 1717 as Viscount Chetwynd, with special remainder to his father's descendants. He married Mary, daughter and coheiress of John Berkeley, 4th Viscount Fitzhardinge, but they had no children, so that his title and estates devolved upon his brother, John.
