The senior line of the great house of Talbot in England traces its descent from Richard Talbot, who had domains in Normandy twenty years anterior to the English Conquest, came over with Wililam the Conqueror, and appears in the Domesday Book to have acquired extensive possessions in England. He married a daughter of Gerard de Bournay, Baron of Yarmouth, by Edith, his wife (by daughter Gundred, daughter of William the Conqueror) and William Warl, of Warren and Surrey, and had issue:
Geoffrey, a witness to the charter of King Stephen.
Hugh, a younger son, who became ancestor of the house of Shrewsbury.
The ancient seat of the family was at Bashal, Yorkshire, but they became more numberous it appears, later, in Worcestershire. The Earl of Shrewsbury and his branch of the family to which the American family of this sketch belongs bears: Gules a lion rampant with a bordure angraiied or. Crest: On a chapeau gules turned up ermine a lion statant or the tail extended. Motto: Prest d'accomplir.

He owned estates in Ireland and descendants settled there. Governor Thomas Talcot, of Massachusetts, was a direct descendant of the Earl of Shrewsduby through this Irish line.
