  • ID: I20772
  • Name: Robert FITZMAURICE , of Tipperkevin 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1218 in Tipperkevin, Kildare, Ireland
  • Note:
    Robert FitzMaurice; held lands in Tipperkevin, Co Kildare, and seems to have had a grant of the cantred (administrative unit akin to a shire hundred) of Otornas and Oflannon, Co Kerry, which formed the basis of the later territory of Clanmaurice. [Burke's Peerage]


    Burke's Peerage has some confusion over the parents of Robert, but I think that I have it right. The Marquess of Lansdowne lineage (p. 1635) refers to the Duke of Leinster lineage (p. 1679), where Robert is listed as son of Maurice Fitz Gerald d. 1176 (I consider that way too early). The Baron FitzGerald of Valencia lineage (p. 1064) has Maurice Fitz Thomas as ancestor of the Marquess of Lansdowne, which is the way that I have it. The dates seem more reasonable.


    Note that many on the World Connect do not have Robert at all, they go from Thomas FitzMaurice (not Thomas FitzRobert) straight to Maurice FitzThomas.
