  • ID: I6191
  • Name: Maud Darcy
  • Sex: F
  • Death: BEF 1559 1
  • MEM: Tara, Ireland: Monument now in the church there
  • Note: 1

    She was married first to James Marward, baron of Skreen, and secondly to Richard FizGerald, of Powerscourt, co. Dublin, sixth son of Garrett More, 8th Earl of Kildare. This Richard was executed at Tyburn with four of his brothers and his nephew 'Silken Thomas; 10th Earl of Kildare, on 3 February 1537. Maud was thus left free to marry, so we can assume that her marriage to Sir Thomas Cusack took place shortly after his divorce in July of that year, or in 1538 at the latest. In 1538 Maud obtained a pardon for the murder of her first husband by her second husband at her instigation; and at the same time Sir Thomas was granted wardship and marriage of her son Walter Marward, the heir to Skreen.
