THERE IS A TRUE WISDOM WHEN DISCOVERING YOUR PAST. The Talbot surname first came to notice when a Richard Talbott was recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The manuscript recorded much of England and part of Wales in the 11th Century by the command of King William - the Conqueror. Written in medieval Latin, it was abbreviated. Its main purpose was to determine what taxes had been owed during the reign of King Edward the Confessor. This allowed William to assert his rights as King. An Irish family with the name of Talbot has held the earldom of Shrewsbury and Waterford since the 15th Century and they can trace their descent from Richard Talbott. The Talbots of Malahide supported the Jacobite Rebellion. It is said that on the morning of the Battle of the Boyne, fought about 25 miles north of Malahide, fourteen Talbots sat down to breakfast at Malahide and all but one did not return from the battle. Webmaster Michael James Talbot. ' I was inspired by Elizabeth 'Betty' O'Carroll née Talbot, who was born on 3rd October 1916 and a second cousin to my late father John Joe Talbot.

It is nowadays what enables scientists to work out the anthropology of the very distance past.'
