Walter was listed as stock owner in the Chch 1860's Militia list. In 1860 men were called upon to serve in the Christchurch Militia which was a home guard for settlers.

Note

Walter had an older brother John Ingram Shrimpton who came to Canterbury on the Charlotte Jane (Chief Cabin passenger) at the age of 20.

John was accidentally killed in a duck shooting accident at Waikuku by his brother Walter just before Christmas 1856

By all accounts, Walter never forgave himself for the accident.
