Richard de Bermingham 1322 Ireland
Posted by: Molly Miller (ID *****1004) Date: September 22, 2008 at 14:59:44
  of 2662

Hi.
I am doing a personal study of Richard de Bermingham for a book I am writing and can't find much info on him. So far I know that he was a baron of Athenry near 1315. He was involved in many battles, his most famous was a victory over the Connaught Irish. (all this info is so vague- I'm sorry) and that he married a Gaelic wife sometime in the early 1300s. He died in 1322

I have heard many accounts of his genealogy and none of them agree. He was the 4th, 12th, 1st, or 2nd baron of Athenry. His father was Pierz fitz Mielir, Peter Bermingham, or John de Bermingham.

I'm looking for the truth. Any and all info anyone has is welcome! I'm especially interested in figuring out 1.) who his wife was 2.) who his children (if he had any) were 3.) How he died.

Please, please, please help!

Thanks so much!!!
