In 1280, Robert Bagod, chief justiciary of Ireland, obtained a grant of the manor of Rath, near Dublin, since known as Bagotrath, and of Bonevilstone and Brownstown, in Co. Limerick, since known as Bagottstown. Maurice Baggot of Baggotstown was one of the twenty exempted from pardon by Ireton when he obtained possession of Limerick in 1651.
