The Norman De Clare family recived large grants of land in England in return for service at the Battle of Hastings and general assistance in conquering the Saxons. Richard took the name Earl of Clare from one of his ninety-five lordships in Suffolk, where the Clare Castle still exists. The modern Irish county of County Clare was historically part of the North Munster Gaelic kingdom of Thomond, dominated by the O'Briens, Kings of Thomond. The region was granted to the De Clare family in 1275 and they became Lords of Thomond. When the boundaries of the modern County Clare were fixed by Sir Henry Sidney in 1565, it was named after the De Clares.

Richard's father is listed here as Robert "the Devil", though many sources list him as Gilbert "Crispin", Count of Brionne. Gilbert was the husband of Richard's mother, Herleva, but she also began having an affair with Robert "the Devil" around 1023. Sources as far back as the Annals of the Four Masters claim that Richard's great grandson, Richard "Strongbow", was the direct descendant of Robert "the Devil". Gilbert "Crispin" is a descendant of Robert's cousin, but not Robert himself.
