Families covered: Fitzgerald of Burnchurch (Kiltrany), Barron of Ballydurne, Barron of Carrick Barron, Barron of Durrow, Barron in co. Waterford

BP1870 starts its entry for this family with the following: "Of the great Hibernian sept of the Fitzgeralds, one branch, a scion of the house of Desmond, were Barons of Burnchurch, in the county of Kilkenny; and - to distinguish themselves - were in the habit of adding the word "Baron" to their patronymic. These barons of Burnchurch, for a long period feudal lords of great influence in their immediate locality, were consequently known as FitzGerald alias Baron, or Baron alias FitzGerald, as the party himself thought proper to write it." It appears that the original name for Burnchurch was Kiltrany.
