So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

  • Notes 
    • --Other Fields Ref Number: 2487 Maurice, the youngest son, was appointed L. J. of Ireland, on the death of Sir James Sudley, 23 Jun 1272, and the year after subdued the whole country of Thomond, taking hostages of the O Briens; he also took Richard, after Earl of Ulster, the L. J. Rupella and others, prisoners at Castle Dermot; and in 1277, his son-in-law, Thomas de Clare, slew O Brien Roe, King of Thomond, then in rebellion; to revenge whose death, the Irish committed many outrages; destroyed the Castles of Aldleck, Roscommon, Sligo, and Randon; and by corrupting some of his follows, he was betrayed to them in Offaley, and imprisoned until he gave hostages, and bound himself to yield up the Castle of Roscommon, and make satisfaction for the death of O Brien and his followers.---He died at Ross in 1286, leaving Gerald Fitz-Maurice Oge, who died of illnesses the same year at Rathmore; and a daughter, Juliana or Emma, who married in 1276 the Lord Thomas de Clare, younger son of Richard, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford. Ibid Cont...pg 8-9: Which Sir Gerald Fitz-Maurice, Lord Offaley, in 1620, finished the Franciscan Friery of Minorities in Kildare (begun by Lord William de Vescy) and in 1271 founded that of Clane in the County of Kildare.--He died at Rathmore 20 July 1286; was buried in the said Friery of Kildare, and having married Emelina, Daughter of Stephen de Longue-Espee by her, who died in 1291, had Thomas Fitz-Gerald his Successor. (Note: He died L. J. of Ireland 1260; his wife (or mother) was Emeline, daughter and heir to the Lord Walter de Fidleford, Baron of Brey, to whom King John gave the Lordships of O Murthy and Imayle, in which stands Castledermot, being before the Estate of O Toole, which by this marriage accrued to the family of Kildare.) He founded the Franciscan Friery at Castledemot; and the Crutched Friery at Adar, for the Redemption of Captives imprisoned by pagans, in the Reign of Edward I.--He married Rohesia (Rofe) Daughter to Richard de St. Michael, Lord of Rheban, by whom he is made the Father of John, created Earl of Kildare; and of Robert, ancestor to the family of Mac-Thomas of Leinster.--But I shall declaine a positive determination of the descent in this point, viz. Whether John, the first Earl of Kildare, was the son of this Thomas, as asserted in divers pedigrees of the family, or of Thomas Simiacus, as mentioned in the Earl of Kildares. "Maurice fitzgerald, think tenant of Baggotrath 1255, Justiciar of Ireland 1272."
