Maud was living in 1284, when she founded an Augustinian nunnery at St John the Evangelist and St. Etheldreda, Legh, Devon. She died before 10 March 1288/9.
Birth date: about 1225, based on husband's 1222 birth
If Margaret de Quincy is her mother, Maud was born after 1220. If she was the daughter of John de Lacy's first wife, Alice de l'Aigle, as charted in The Visitation of Cheshire in the Year 1580 (see page 6), then she would have been born after 1211 (when they married) and before 1221.
Birth years/dates found:
4 August 1222 (in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England)
Actually - It seems this was a misreading of Cawley. Her husband was born 4 August 1222.
25 January 1223, apparently from text in Maud's Wikipedia article: "On 25 January 1238 which was her fifteenth birthday, Maud married Richard de Clare,..." (other statements of fact have a source citation; this one did not).
In Maud's entry, Cawley shows birth as "[1221/25]" (the brackets indicating uncertainty). Her father's birth is shown as "".

↑ Wikipedia articles on Maud and her mother (accessed 6 May 2018; no source found for birth date in either article). Passages in Maud's article that refer to Margaret as her mother cite Mitchell (but neither Maud's birth on 25 January 1223 nor her mother's 1206 birth year has a citation - to Mitchell or otherwise):

- Feb 2015 comment: children have all been verified & have inline citations
- multiple April 2018 comments: I addressed all the suggestions, so they should all be cleared in the next database refresh. Many were caused because the mother's birth was "before 1217" (as given in Richardson); Wikipedia has "about 1206" (unsourced), but it's reasonable/feasible, so I changed it (that date was also in the text of her profile). Birth date is still different (but 1222 was wrong, so that's fixed; see text), as is location (which was marked as a false error - although both Lewis and Wikipedia say she was born in Lincoln, her father did not become Earl of Lincoln until 1232, according to Richardson's Royal Ancestry, Vol III, pp 466-470 LACY 3)
