Sir Edmond ('Albanagh' or 'Albanach') de Burgh, 'Lord MacWilliam' (d 1375)
BE1883 reports that Edmond had one son by his wife Sabina. However, 'Peerage of Ireland' (Lodge, revised by Mervyn Archdall, vol 3, 1789, 'Bourke, Earl of Mayo', p415) mentions her but then reports a second wife, Finola, suggesting that she was the mother of his 3 sons, Thomas, UIlick & William. Provisionally, we (in effect) combine those as follows.
