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 
    • 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. 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 (Rose) 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 decline 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 Kildare' s.
