  • ID: I30126
  • Name: Agatha de BURGH 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1247 in Chilton, Thame, Buckinghamshire, England
  • Note:
    The following is a post to SGM, 7 Jan 2003, by Ronny Bodine:

    Walter de Burgh (c1230-1271), 2nd Earl of Ulster, has 5 children traditionally accredited to him- Richard, 3rd Earl (d. 1326), Theobald
    (d. 1303), William, Thomas (d. 1315) and daughter Egidia, wife of James, 5th High Steward of Scotland.

    The web is replete with ancestral postings that Agatha,wife of John de Grenville (fl. 1278), was another daughter. None offer any proof. I find the only mention of her parentage is Collins, 5th Edition, vol. 5, p. 233, where he calls her father "Walter de Burgo" without any reference to his being the Earl. The Dictionary of National Biography, as perhaps most other sources, seem to rely upon Lodge's Peerage for his children, but even he does not name her. Is there any proof that Agatha was the daughter of Earl Walter? No other peerage works I have consulted attempt to ID any other of his children besides his eldest son and heir.

    Many thanks for any input.
