Sheriff of Worcester, 31 Hen. VIII. Married (2) Elizabeth Hungerford, his mistress, widow of William Wynter. There is a biography of Sir Gilbert Talbot (d. 1542) in S.T. Bindoff, ed. [1982], _History of Parliament: House of Commons, 1509-1558_, v. 3.

m/2. Elizabeth Hungerford Wynter:

d. Sir Humphrey Talbot

e. Walter Talbot

Sir Nicholas Nicolas, author of _Testamenta Vetusta_ [literally, "Old Wills"], claimed that the sons of Gilbert Talbot, Knt., by his second wife, Anne Wynter, both d.s.p. [died without heirs] [1]. Walter Talbot does not appear to have left a will ["Documents Online"], though Dame Elizabeth Talbot [2] and Humphrey Talbot [3] both have testaments. Elizabeth gives a bequest to Walter's son, Gilbert, as well as his daughter, Elizabeth; she also names a "goddaughter Joane," but it's unclear to me who this child belonged to [4]. Humphrey Talbot mentions a son John as well daughters Elizabeth and Frances [5].
