BE1883 Burgh of Kent, supported by BP1870 Clanricarde, reports that William was father of both Adelme described as ancestor of the house of Clanricarde and numerous families of De Burgh, Burgh, Burke, Bourke, etc and John and reports that that John was father of Hubert, Earl of Kent. BE1883 De Burgh of Ulster reports that Richard de Burgh 'the Great' was son of William FitzAdelm. Various web sites therefore show Richard 'the Great' as son of William son of Adelm son of William, 2nd Earl of Cornwall. HOWEVER:
a TCP Cornwall reports that William 2nd Earl probably died without issue.
b TCP Ulster calls the suggestion that William de Burgh, father of Richard 'the Great', was the same person as William FitzAdelm as an "extraordinary belief" that has been "exploded". It says that William de Burgh's parentage is unknown.
c TCP Ulster reports that William, Lord of Connaught, was brother probably the elder brother of Hubert, Earl of Kent. This compares with the implication by BE1883 that they were cousins.
d TCP Kent says that Hubert of Kent's parentage is unknown although it does report some unproven suggestions.

The earldom was created only for Hubert and any male heirs of his marriage to Margaret, Princess of Scotland.
