    GERALD, younger son of Walter and Beatrice, was constable, under Arnulf de Montgomery, of his castle of Pembroke, and successfully defended it when besieged by the Welsh in 1092. In 1095 he led a military expedition against the Welsh on the borders of what is now Pembrokeshire, and in 1100 went to Ireland to demand for Arnulf the daughter of King Murrough in marriage. Arnulf was deprived of his estates and exiled by Henry I in 1102, and the King granted the custody of Pembroke Castle to Gerald.

    He married Nest, daughter of Rhys ap Tudor Mawr, PRINCE OF SOUTH WALES (e). The date of his death is not known, presumably before 1136. [Complete Peerage X:10-11, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

By Stephen, constable of Cardigan (query after Gerald's death), Nest bore a son, Robert FitzStephen, and by Henry I a son Henry (killed 1158), father of Meiler FitzHenry, which Robert and Meiler were later brothers-in-arms of the Geraldines in Ireland. For the descendants of Gerald and Nest see chart pedigree sub Kerry.
