Sir Roland FitzEustace of Harristown,
later Roland Eustace, Baron Portlester

Roland, son of Sir Edward FitzEustace, the Lord Deputy, was born about 1430, and was destined soon to become one of the principal men in Ireland during the Wars of the Roses. . . .

- - -

. . . Portlester was one of the first Irish peers to be so created by Letters Patent.

The only peerages so granted before 1500 being those of the Earls of Ulster, Carrick, Kildare, Louth, Ormonde, Desmond and Waterford; Viscount Gormanston 1478; and Barons Trimleston 1462 [..Links..], Portlester 1462, and Ratowth 1468.

- - -

. . . He married three times. First, Elizabeth, daughter of John Brune; second, in about 1463, Joanna (or Joan), widow of Christopher Plunkett, Ist Lord Killeen, and daughter of Bellew of Bellewstown; and third, in about 1467, Margaret, widow of John, the son of Sir John Dowdall of Newtown, and also the widow of Thomas Barnewall, daughter and co-heiress of Jenico D'Artois. She predeceased him, and was buried at St. Audoen's, Dublin. . . .

- - -

. . . His two sons, Oliver and Richard, perhaps illigitimate, predeceased him Richard by only a year or so

He had four daughters, probably all by his third wife:


@ Alison, who married 8th Earl of Kildare


@ Joan. who married

(1) her cousin Richard Plunkett,
2nd Baron of Dunsany, and

(2) her second-cousin Sir Maurice Eustace of Ballycotelan


@ Maud, who married

(1) Thomas Marward, Baron of Skreen, Co. Meath, (d. 1504) and

(2) Sir John Plunkett of Bewley, Co. Louth


@ Janet (d. 1536), who married Sir Walter Delahyde of Moyglarie, Co.
Meath.

She, with her two sons, James and John, and Thomas Eustace her nephew, was accused of having incited the 10th Earl of Kildare to rebel in 1534, and was detained in Dublin Castle as " Dame Jenet Eustace, the traitor's aunt and foster mother." . . .

- - -

. . . Portlester was buried at New Abbey, where his daughter, Alison, Countess of Kildare, had been buried the year before. She is said to have died of grief when the 8th Earl was arrested in 1495 and imprisoned in the Tower. She was not to know that he would be freed the following year and appointed by the King " to rule over all Ireland," as the result of the famous trial. . . .

- - -

. . . On his death in 1496, Thomas, his nephew, son of his brother Richard, succeeded to his estates but the title became extinct. . . .

- - -

. . . Richard Eustace, Portlester's brother, is a dim figure of whom we know nothing, except that he was living in 1493 and bad two sons'

@ SIR THOMAS

@ SIR RiCHARD
. . . married Anne
. . . . . daughter of Sir Robert Eustace of Ballycotland
