Gerald Fitz Maurice Fitz Gerald married Eve, presumably the daughter of Robert de Bermingham who brought him in marriage the Barony of Offaly, and he became the first of the Fitz Geralds to be known as "baron of Offaly." Gerald died shortly before 15 Jan 1203/4. His widow married for a second time to Geoffrey Fitz Robert, and a third time to Geoffrey de Marsh (de Marisco), sometime Justiciar of Ireland, who held Offaly after her death. Eve was living in June 1223 and died before Dec 1226.

Robert Bermingham
or Bremingham, not improbably a younger son of Piers, Lord of Birmingham, Warwickshire, appears to have been the first, or at any rate a very early member, of this family to settle in Ireland. Under the name of Robert de Bermyngeham he was witness to important Irish charters, 1175-79. The statements that he accompanied Henry II in his invasion of Ireland in 1172, and that he obtained the status of a Peer as Lord Athenry, rest on no discoverable satisfactory evidence. He died before 1218.
