Fitzgeralds of "Leinster"

Looking for information about the descendants of William Fitzgerald of "Leinster", in Nottoway County. He married Elizabeth Irby. I have the children as William, Thomas, Francis, Robert & Elizabeth. I'm particularly interested in Robert. There's a story that I'm seeking confirmation for that Robert of "Leinster" was friends with James Henderson, a very wealthy man who had no son. James supposedly requested that Robert name his son after him, and that if he did so, he would leave his fortune to his namesake and godson. Who did Robert marry? Were there other children?
This family is documented in Old Homes and Families of Nottoway, but it talks more about William Sr. & Junior, and Francis and his family. Can anyone help?
