TALBOT Family History

This distinguished surname is recorded in many forms including the popular Talbot, and the more unusual Talboy, Tallboy and Tallboys, is both English and French, but of Old French origins, pre 7th century origins. It is claimed to have two distinct possible origins, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly it may derive from the French male given name "Talebod", itself from the Old German "Talabod", and a compound of the elements "tal", meaning to destroy, with "bod", the meaning of "tidings", and hence the "messenger of destruction", a suitably war-like name for the ever-warring Dark Ages. As a personal name, this was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and a Talebod de Neweham is noted in the 1146 Book of Seals for Essex...

I'm looking for more information about James Stuart Talbot, (1843 - 1892 Died in Queens Co , he married Frances Maria Biddulph Meridith, father from Collingstown Co westmeath, Ireland . perhaps had a brother Richard Talbot who married Eliza McIntoch. ( july 10 1846 - died in New Zealand had about 10 children over there.?


Hi John Talbot. I am tracing my husband’s family of Talbots who come from Dangue, Killorglin. His Great great grandfather Alexander Talbot was born around 1849/1853, and was married to somebody called Anne. I only started looking yesterday so have a way to go, but if I get any further back, I’ll let you know. Would be interesting to see which line of the Talbot family you belong to (my father-in-law is Raymond Talbot, born to David Talbot Junior, son of David Talbot, son of Alexander Talbot - so I’m now guessing that your Alexander Talbot is the father of this Alexander Talbot). It’s fascinating!

Augusta Talbot

I am Augusta Talbot. I am am American because my French Canadian family moved to Massachusetts but our ancestor Jacques Talbot Dit Gervais (my GGGG Grandpa) came from Normandy, France around 1698. Talbot has Norman origins but is also English around since Henry V conquered Normandy. I hit a wall at Jean Talbot (1590-1673) who married Maria Ann Archambault (1600-1630). There are also some Talbots in Ireland but that's mainly because the French went there and established some places.

John Talbot

I have traced my Talbot ancestors to the townlands of Farrantoreen, and Rangue in the parish of Killorglin, Kerry Ireland. My third ggf was Alexander Talbot, b.1805 in Farrantoreen and d.1895 in Rangue. This is where I hit a brick wall. I do not have his spouse or parents names. Looking for help in breaking this wall down.


Im Tim Talbot, youngest of 6 sons from Raymond Eugene Talbot and Joan Talbot, n?e Corcoran. Mums parents are from Edgesworthstown, Co. Longford, her Father Edward, Limerick City, Co. Limerick, her Mother, Charlotte Banks.. Dads grandfather William J. Talbot was from Co.Tipperary, his Grandmother Anna Marie Hoey, n?e McGonigal, from Co. Sligo. No relations left behind were kept in contact with, so Ive no idea whom, or where any of them might be. I dont want or need to borrow any money or crash on your sofa, Honest. But theres GOT to be some Talbots, Hoeys, Corcorans, or Banks out there
