I'm a bit skeptical about the ancestry of our William Talbot here. He is presented here as a grandson of the Earl of Shrewsbury, but he married his daughter to a tanner; also, according to the info here, he was born in Dorset, while his father was born in Yorkshire, and his grandfather of course was an Earl in the West Midlands. It seems quite fanciful to me at first glance.

I agree. The source link does not cite any underlying records & just the geography on other sides of England does not work, does it.

I've disconnected from the parents & I hope you join me in searching for better records.
