FitzGerald, John, 18th Earl of Kildare, son of the 17th Earl, was born in 1661, died in 1707, aged about 46, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. In 1683 the degree of D.C.L. was conferred upon him by the University of Oxford. In 1689 his estates, of the annual value of £6,800 in Ireland, and £200 in England, were sequestered by James's Irish Parliament. He sold the family lands of Adare and Croom to pay off incumbrances on his other property.
