Date: Fri, 25 Feb 2000 07:54:38 -0800
Since my original post last week regarding the maternity of
Juliane Fitz Maurice, various people have contacted me and
requested additional information on the ancestry of her mother,
Maud de Prendergast. In the intervening time, I've researched
the matter and have developed a preliminary ahnentafel for
Juliane Fitz Maurice and her mother, Maud de Prendergast, a
shortened version of which is presented below. The ancestry of
Maud de Prendergast includes some of the top medieval families
of England, Ireland and France, including Quincy, Clare, Burgh,
Lacy, Beaumont, Braose, St. Valery and Vermandois. If anyone
has any corrections or additions to the information below,
please let me know. The list of colonial immigrants who
descend from Juliane Fitz Maurice is repeated following the

>>The recent postings regarding Margaret de Clare, wife of
