  • Note:

    Robert Bermingham or Bremingham, not improbably a younger son of Piers, Lord of Birmingham, co. Warwick, appears to have been the first, or at any rate a very early member, of this family to settle in Ireland (a). Under the name of Robert de Bermyngeham he was witness to important Irish charters, 1175-79. The statements that he accompanied Henry II in his invasion of Ireland in 1172, and that he obtained the status of a Peer as Lord Athenry, rest on no discoverable satisfactory evidence. He d. before 1218. [Complete Peerage I:290-1]
