The Maudes were descended from Robert Maude of West Riddlesden, Yorkshire, who bought lands in Kilkenny and Tipperary in the latter half of the 17th century. His wife was Frances Wandesforde, the sister of Christopher Wandesforde, the 1st Lord Castlecomer. Robert was the father of Anthony who was an M.P. for Cashel in 1686 and High Sheriff of the county in 1695. Anthony’s son, Sir Robert, also an M.P., was created a baronet of Ireland in 1705 and died in 1750. These men were only sons. Sir Robert had several children but he left his estates to his eldest son, Sir Thomas, who was created Baron in 1776.
