    Trim Castle:

    When Walter [de Lacy] died in 1241 the estates passed to his granddaughter, Maud who married Geoffrey de Geneville in 1254--the beginning of a period of prosperity for Trim. The Great Hall was constructed on the site of the north curtain wall and the North tower developed as the Solar or private apartments. In 1306, de Geneville's granddaughter Joanna married Roger Mortimer--1st Earl of March. Their descendants held Trim until Edmund, the 5th Earl, died in 1425.
