HerbertFitz-Herbert obtained from Henry II a confirmation of the landed possessions of his father and, likewise, the office of chamberlain. In the 12th of that monarch, anno 1166, upon the assessment of the aid which was then levied for marrying the king's daughter, he certified that he held one knight's fee in Wilts andthree in Berks. Upon the Conquest of Ireland, Henry II, at a great council held at Oxford anno 1177, gave the kingdom of Limerick in that Realme to this Herbert and William his brother, Reginald, Earl of Cornwall, and Josceline de la Pomerai, their nephew, (the City of Limerick and one cantred excepted, which the king reserved to himself and his heirs) to be held by the service of sixty knight's fees, but it appears they declined the gift.
