Misc. Notes
"Before the death of Henry II (1189) he received a grant of lands from John as lord of Ireland. At John's accession (1109) he was installed in Thomond and was governor of Limerick. In 1190-1201 he was supporting in turn Cathal Carrach and Cathal Crovderg for the native throne, but he was expelled from Limerick in 1203, and, losing his Connaught, though not his Munster, estates, died in 1205." - Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1956 Edition, 4:401. William's brother, Hubert (d. 1243), was a celebrated Chief Justiciar of England; his story is told in Chapter V of "The Magnificent Century," Thomas B. Costain {(Doubleday & Co., 1951)}. {W.H.Turton gives different parents for William in "The Plantagenet Ancestry" (Balt.:Gen.Pub.Co., 1968),p.92.}
