Families covered: Herbert of Cahirnane, Herbert of Currens, Herbert of Kilcaugh, Herbert of Muckruss (Muckross)

BLGI1912 identifies the following Sir Matthew as "of Colebrook, the lineal descendant from the eldest son of Sir Richard Herbert of Colebrooke, only brother of the Earl of Pembroke of the first creation" and claims that "the family of Muckross and Kilcaugh now remains the existing and legitimate male representative of the famous name of Herbert." The connection we show for Sir Matthew is wholly speculative as we have not yet seen how he fitted into that family.
