     Thomas FitzMaurice, 1st Earl of Kerry was born in 1668.1 He was the son of William FitzMaurice, 18th Baron of Kerry and Lixnaw and Constance Long.1 He married Anne Petty, daughter of Sir William Petty and Elizabeth Waller, Baroness Shelburne, on 14 January 1692/93.2 He died on 16 March 1741 at Lixnaw, Ireland.2 He was buried on 21 March 1741/42 at Killtomy, Ireland.2

     His grandson, the Marquess of Lansdowne, wrote unflatteringly of him, "my grandfather did not want the manners of the country nor the habits of his family to make him a tyrant. He was so by nature. He was the most severe character which can be imagined, obstinate and inflexible; he had not much understanding, but strong nerves and great perseverance, and no education, except what he had in the army, where he served in his youth, with a good degree of reputation for personal bravery and activity. He was a handsome man and, luckily for me and mine, married a very ugly woman, who brought into his family whatever degree of sense may have appeared in it, or whatever wealth is likely to remain in it, the daughter of Sir William Petty... With all this he had high principles of honour and a strict love of justice, which made him govern the country better than he did his own family... His children did not love him, but dreaded him; his servants the same."2
