    -------------------------------

    Herbert Fitz-Herbert obtained from Henry II a confirmation of the landed possessions of his father and, likewise, the office of chamberlain. In the 12th of that monarch, anno 1166, upon the assessment of the aid which was then levied for marrying the king's daughter, he certified that he held one knight's fee in Wilts and three in Berks. Upon the Conquest of Ireland, Henry II, at a great council held at Oxford anno 1177, gave the kingdom of Limerick in that Realme to this Herbert and William his brother, Reginald, Earl of Cornwall, and Josceline de la Pomerai, their nephew, (the City of Limerick and one cantred excepted, which the king reserved to himself and his heirs) to be held by the service of sixty knight's fees, but it appears they declined the gift. In the 6th of Richard I, he was sheriff of the county of Gloucester, for one of that year and afterwards during the whole reign of that king. In the eighth of the same reign, anno 1197, he was likewise sheriff of Shropshire.

    He m. Lucie, third dau. and co-heir of Milo FitzWalter, Earl of Hereford, and by her acquired the Forest of Dene, where he afterwards resided in the Castle of St. Michael, with other large possession in the counties of Brecknock and Gloucester. He had issue, Reginald Fitz-Herbert, Peter Fitz-Herbert, and Matthew Fitz-Herbert. Herbert d. in 1205 and was s. by his elder surviving son, Peter Fitz-Herbert.
