Maud was born in Ireland on 17 March 1242, the daughter of Sir Gerald de Prendergast of Beauvoir (died 1251), and his second wife, who was one of the daughters of Richard Mor de Burgh and Egidia de Lacy. Maud had an elder half-sister, Marie de Prendergast from her father's first marriage to Maud Walter. Marie was the wife of Sir John de Cogan by whom she had issue. Maud's paternal grandparents were Philip de Prendergast, Lord of Enniscorthy, Constable of Leinster, and Maud de Quincy, a granddaughter of Strongbow, through the latter's illegitimate daughter Basilie de Clare who married Robert de Quincy, Constable of Leinster. Her great-grandfather, Maurice de Prendergast, Lord Prendergast had played a prominent part in the Cambro-Norman invasion of Ireland led by Strongbow, and was rewarded with much land in counties Wexford, Waterford, Tipperary, Mayo, Wicklow, and Cork. Her maternal great-grandparents were William de Burgh and More O'Brien; Walter de Lacy, Lord of Trim and Margaret de Braose.

When she was a young child, Maud married firstly David FitzMaurice, who died by 17 March 1249, which was her seventh birthday; her second husband was Maurice de Rochford. Between 1258 and 28 October 1259, following Maurice de Rochford's death which occurred sometime before May 1258, she married her third and last husband, Maurice FitzGerald, 3rd Lord of Offaly, Justiciar of Ireland (1238-1286). He was the son of Maurice FitzGerald, 2nd Lord of Offaly and Juliana.
Together Maurice and Maud had two daughters:
Juliana FitzGerald (c.1263 Dublin, Ireland - 24 September 1300), married firstly Thomas de Clare, Lord of Thomond, by whom she had four children; she married secondly Nicholas Avenel; she married thirdly Adam de Cretynges.

3.^ note:The Complete Peerage, Vol.VII, p.200 confirms what many genealogists, including Douglas Richardson have now since established: namely that Maurice FitzGerald and Emmeline Longespee did not have children together contrary to prior belief that she was the mother of his daughters. In point of fact, Emmeline's heiress was Maud La Zouche, Baroness Holland, who was a granddaughter of her elder sister, Ela Longespee, which proves that Emmeline did not bear any children.
