County Galway, Ireland
Walter de Burgh was 2nd Lord of Connaught and 1st Earl of Ulster (after its restoration), the second son of Richard Mor de Burgh and Egidia de Lacy. He founded Athassel Priory.
He married Aveline, daughter of Sir John FitzGeoffrey, Justiciar of Ireland, by his wife, Isabel Bigod. In a royal order from Westminster in September 1247, Sir John FitzGeoffrey was charged by the King with seizing the lands of Walter de Burgh's older brother Richard, who had died. The de Burgh lands in Connaught were being held by John de Livet, likely the son of Gilbert de Lyvet, one of the earliest Lord Mayors of Dublin and Marmaduke de Eschales (Scales).
Walter was succeeded by his eldest son, Richard Og de Burgh, 2nd Earl of Ulster (The Red Earl of Ulster). Other children were: three sons, Theobald, William and Thomas, and daughter, Egidia who married Sir James Stewart (1243-1309), High Steward of Scotland.
