Barron is also the name of the Fitzgeralds of Ireland. Barron was of the FAMILY OF PALATINE BARONS, of Burnchurch in the County of Waterford, Ireland. Maurice Fitzgerald, the first KNIGHT OF KERRY, known as the "Black Knight" was the common ancestor of the Fitzgeralds of Alloone in County Kildare, now extinct, and those of Cloyne, Imokelly and Gurteens. The last branch of the Fitzgeralds were the "BARRONS OF BURNCHURCH". They retained a station of rank and influence in Kilkenny. The Irish Barrons are descendants of the Barrons of Burnchurch. The patronymic name of the Barons of this church was Fitzgerald. This branch changed its name to Baron because their Fitzgerald family was being exterminated. The surname Fitzgerald is one of the two great surnames resulting from the Anglo-Norman conquest, when the name came to Ireland in 1170. The name originated in Wales
