Baron of Offaly. m firstly ---. m secondly as her first husband, AGNES de Valence Dame de Danfalize, daughter of GUILLAUME de Lusignan "de Valence" Seigneur de Valence Lord of Pembroke & his wife Joan Munchensy (-after 7 Oct 1277). An order dated 10 Apr 1275 relates to payments to "Agnes de Valence the K´s cousin" out of the estate of "Maurice Fitz Gerald her late husband"[553]. She married secondly Hugh Balliol Baron of Bywell, and thirdly Jean d'Avesnes Seigneur de Beaumont. A writ after the death of "Hugh de Balliolo", dated "10 Apr 55 Hen III", assigns her dower to "Agnes de Valentia, the king´s niece, late the wife of the said Hugh"[554]. The Chronicle of Baudouin d´Avesnes records that "Ioannes", son of "domino Balduino de Avesnes domino de Bellomonte" and his wife, married "Agnete filia domini Guillelmi de Valentia fratris regis Angliæ Henrici ex parte matris"[555]. An order dated 7 Oct 1277 relates to attorneys appointed by "John de Aveynes and Agnes his wife" relating to affairs in Ireland[556]. Maurice & his [first/second] wife had one child:

(a) GERALD FitzMaurice (-1287). Baron of Offaly. [Betrothed/m] (after 16 Jan 1283) --- de Joinville, daughter of GEOFFROY de Joinville Seigneur de Vaucouleurs, Justiciar of Ireland & his wife Matilda de Lacy. An order dated 16 Jan 1283 records "recognizance by Geofferey de Geneville, Matilda his wife and Peter their eldest son" to "William de Valence" for the commission of lands of “Maurice FitzGerald in Ireland, deceased” and for the marriage of “Gerald son and heir of the said Maurice, under age, and in custody of the said William”[557]. The Complete Peerage, assuming that Gerald’s marriage was arranged with the daughter of Geoffroy de Joinville as a result of this agreement and that the marriage took place, and calls her “as is commonly stated, Joan”[558]. No primary source is cited which confirms that this information is correct. Geoffroy de Joinville is recorded elsewhere with a daughter named “Jeanne” who married Johann [I] Graf von Salm. Unless this was Jeanne’s second marriage, it is likely that the daughter who was betrothed to or married Gerald FitzMaurice bore another name.

ii) JULIANA (-after 1309). m JOHN de Cogan (1243-1275).
